The inaugural event of the North West CitA BIM Region was a huge sucess



A great turnout for the first meeting of the North West CitA BIM Region

The newly established North West CitA BIM Region held it’s inaugural event last Wednesday on the 11th of May. And what an event it was! With a brilliant turn out of over seventy individuals and dozens of local companies and institutions this BIM Region event was an exemplary one that showed what a drive there is in  local industry to learn about and adopt BIM into practice. They’re a good looking bunch, as you can see from the photo above!
