The Construction Sector Performance and Prospects 2019 Report: Irelands construction industry must embrace digital technologies more proactively. Action Plan for Jobs 2018 : Digital technologies are becoming increasingly disruptive and pervasive / new pathways for reskilling into ICT/Technology roles at apprenticeship level.

construction sector output, it was decided by the authors to reapply the macro BIM maturity conceptual models to investigate if Irelands BIM diffusion dynamic and levels have been impacted. Macro BIM maturity model would assist in understanding any limitations that a lack of funding has had on the adoption of BIM.

Model A: BIM diffusion areas model for Ireland Ireland has experienced a steady increase in both collaboration and integration for process and policies. The improvement in policy and processes in regards to the BIM collaboration fields can be partially attributed to the roadmap and governments digital strategy. A more significant initiative which has helped in this context is the introduction of ISO 19650. This maturity model should exhibit further growth in the coming years as the National Standards Authority of Ireland now offers third-party certification to IS EN ISO 19650 part 2.

2.1 Measurements and Benchmarks This model assesses the BIM maturity of countries using a comparative matrix or granularity using component-specific metrics Model B: Macro maturity components model for Ireland Compared to 2017, Ireland has seen moderate growth in the majority of components. The largest growth has come within the objectives and milestones, regulatory framework and noteworthy publications. The roadmap, governments digital
strategy and ISO publications have all played a part in elevating these figures. While other figures have not significantly grown, they remain stable. Irelands technology and infrastructure continues to attract foreign investment with Project Ireland 2040 firmly placed to support businesses and communities across all of Ireland in realising their potential. Learning and education remain strong with ongoing commitments to digital construction evident within leading third level educational bodies. This commitment is fundamental as the Irish construction industry now faces an unprecedented skills shortage Education Research There has been a surge in research within the domain of BIM since 2017 with a number of Horizon2020 projects commissioned.
The Horizon 2020 BIMcert project aims to develop more efficient and relevant training programme materials Limerick IT is involved in the Horizon 2020 BIMZeED project GMIT leads the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning for the BIM Futures Project UCC is developing a BIM-based toolkit for efficient renovation of buildings under the BIM4EEB project DCU has made funding available for a Postdoctoral Scholar to investigate how IFC can be used for digital planning. UCD have ongoing BIM based research initiatives in Model View Developments (MVDs). The original BICP team from TU Dublin, Trinity College Dublin and CitA continue to carry out important research. Model C: Diffusion Dynamics Model 2017
2019 Results show no change in this model This model assesses and compares the directional pressures and mechanisms affecting how diffusion unfolds within a population Model C: Diffusion Dynamics Model Results are similar to those of 2017, which suggest again that that Irelands diffusion dynamic is still middle-out Larger organisations or industry associations are pushing the BIM agenda within the industry and not the government.
As the government has not provided strategic funding to-date or guidance documents to assist with BIM implementation, this has resulted in this model remaining static. Unless adequate funding is provided to support the governments digital strategy, it may risk further alienating SMEs within an already demanding and extremely competitive sector Model D: Macro-Diffusion Responsibilities 2017 2019 This model identifies, assesses and compare the actions policy makers take (or can take) to facilitate market-wide adoption
BIM IN IRELAND 2019 While results are similar in 2019, it is encouraging to observe that the Irish government is now seen as taking a more active approach when it comes to communication. Construction Sector Group (CSG), which ensures that regular and open dialogue between government and industry. While results have improved in comparison to 2017, there is a slight reduction in incentivisation despite an increase in training. These figures would be predicted to decrease or stagnate if the government fails to provide the industry with more encouragement and support to adopt BIM. Model E: Macro Diffusion Responsibilities Model 2017
2.2 2.1 Communities of Practice 2.4 2.1 Technology Advocates 2.7 3.2
Industry Associations This model assesses and compares the roles played by different stakeholder groups in facilitating diffusion within and across markets. Model E: Macro Diffusion Responsibilities Model In 2017 the technology developers were seen as the most influential technology players. However, the developers, service providers and advocates are now seen as co-leaders in this space. For the policymakers, the educational institutes continue to have much higher BIM diffusion compared to policy makers. The survey shows a significant drop for policy makers within this area.
The construction organisations are seen as the key process players. However, industry associations and communities of practice are also ranked highly. BIM in Ireland Umbrella Forum What does tell us about the Roadmap? NBC Roadmap: Leadership Pillar
While government has not provided the leadership required, as of yet, there is still evidence that the industry continues to mature. In the recent NBS CitA survey it was reported that 76% of respondents had adopted BIM. According to the macro maturity models, leadership is presented by construction organisations, professional institutes, and the 3rd level educational sector. Leadership Despite no strategic funding being provided to-date from the government, some public sector organisations, continue to push BIM. A collective consortium of industry bodies has presented their findings to the CSG on a roadmap for what services the Centre of
DCOE Framework NBC Roadmap: Standards Pillar NSAI has now developed a BIM certification program. Development of the National Annex. Ongoing release of templates and guidance documents, such as the RIAI BIM Pack, continued progress is expected in this area. Three Irish BIM experts attending CEN meetings. Standards Funding being made available for a Postdoctoral Scholar at DCU to investigate how IFC can be used for digital planning and building regulation control submissions. The development of online tools and supports to help implement
National Tools has yet to be progressed. NBC Roadmap: Education and Training Pillar The third level education sector continues to be seen as the primary entity for upskilling. Professional institutes also continue to upskill internally Organisations, such as CitA, continue to provide guidance to both large enterprises and SMEs within the sector through workshops, discounted training, conferences, etc. To target the skills shortage at its core, it is recommended to explore exemplary international initiatives, such as Class of Your
Own and BeIMCraft. Education and Training At present, the National BIM Education Taskforce has not been established. Development of an online BIM self-assessment tool for companies and a base level of learning outcomes targeted at alternative National Framework of Qualifications levels have not been NBC Roadmap: Procurement Pillar The procurement process of a phased BIM mandate for public works projects is on schedule to commence in Q2 2019.
As of yet, there are no online supports or reviews of the suitability or provisions made for developing government construction contracts. Procurement Concerning the maturity, despite rising in this area, benchmarks and processes may stagnate unless clear direction is provided. Conclusion Ireland has shown a steady increase in some aspects of its BIM maturity since 2017. The Irish AEC Sector has, by default, led in the execution of parts of the roadmap and, in doing so, achieved a number of significant targets. There are still many vital objectives outstanding that will need funding if the key aims of the roadmap are to be achieved.
The AEC sector now finds itself at a crossroads with a push from government required to advance the BIM maturity within the industry The industry cannot afford to stay static and must advance in line with other global jurisdictions to maintain its competitiveness.
