|Richard Saxon - CBE|
To me, this report seems like a more in-depth look into the subjects covered in the end of year BIM Pipeline for Growth report.
Having someone of the calibre of Richard Saxon CBE writing the report gives a huge amount of weight to the subject. Richard has been chair of BDP, president of BCO, Vice President for Practice at RIBA and is now “BIM Ambassador for Growth” for UK Government.
