HS2 ltd has launched a supplier survey to help gauge whether the potential supply chain is ready to work to Level 2 Building Information Modelling (BIM) procuring and managing data for the design, build, operation and maintenance of the new high speed rail link.
The survey is open to any company planning to bid for work on the £42.6bn project and is not a formal part of the procurement process. The aim of the survey is to identify areas where HS2 ltd can work with suppliers to help them get ready for the new requirements.
HS2 ltd has appointed Mace Ltd to run the survey as part of a larger BIM Up-skilling Study. The study will include an electronic BIM capability scorecard for potential suppliers to complete, together with a series of interviews, meetings and events designed to capture views from the supply chain.
The survey is the first of a series of consultations announced at the HS2 Supply Chain Conference in Birmingham in November 2013.
