Jim De Waele also commented: “We have long had 3D representations derived from AGS data, and the AGS members, the site investigation companies, provide their work in this format, but by and large, by the time their associates and FPS members get involved with the job, the data in AGS format has been lost.

“Instead pdf’s and scanned borehole logs are what remains. We now have the chance to see what BIM can deliver from cradle to grave: in this case from the site investigation to the instrumentation and monitoring data that will be used by the owners of the asset.”

A significant step towards
greater capacity and connectivity

Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Director General, Nick BaveystockInstitution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Director General, Nick Baveystock (right), said: “ICE believes HS2 is still the best option for greatly increasing rail capacity, strengthening connectivity between city-regions and creating economic and regeneration opportunities - and the publication of the Hybrid Bill is a significant step towards achieving this.

“We welcome Government’s ongoing efforts to make the case for HS2. Clearly it has to be an integral part of a national transport strategy rather than a project developed in isolation, and the benefits should be understood.
“But any debate must be properly informed, and Government must take the lead in bringing about a much greater understanding of the management and cost of risk, and how contingency really works – an area which has caused concern around projected costs.

“Much was learned from our experience with contingency budgeting in the London 2012 Olympics, and this has been embedded within the HS2 programme, but the trick now is to articulate that.”

FMB slams MPs’ call to keep Code for Sustainable Homes

The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) has slammed the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee’s report into the Code for Sustainable Homes and the Housing Standards Review as “one-sided” and called on the Committee to re-examine the evidence.

The Committee’s report calls on the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to reconsider plans outlined in the recent Housing Standards Review consultation to phase out the Code for Sustainable Homes and questioned its plans to rationalise technical standards through a set of tiered national standards.

Brian Berry ,FMB Chief Executive, Brian Berry (left), FMB Chief Executive, said: “For years, the building industry has had to negotiate a proliferation of competing, overlapping and sometimes contrary local and national standards.

“These have added unnecessary complexity and cost to the house building industry, and have had a disproportionate impact on smaller firms and smaller developments.”

Berry continued: “The Housing Standards Review took place over an extended period of time with input from all interested parties,. It systematically examined the different standards in operation and proposed a clear way forward: a set of tiered national standards and the incorporation of these standards over time, wherever possible, into Building Regulations.
