summary This paper discusses the potential of a BIM platform for offsite timber construction within the context of the UK construction industry. It examines the benefits, limitations, and challenges that BIM brings for offsite timber. Proof-of-concept projects are presented that deal with the architectural technology, structural engineering, and life cycle analysis aspects. These demonstrate the feasibility of the development of an open BIM platform which would establish a common standard for the industry. The paper concludes by suggesting an alternative business model for offsite timber construction, as enabled by Building Information Modelling.
