Welcome to nima!
Nima (formerly the UK BIM Alliance) is a not-for-profit virtual organisation. It promotes information management best practices, helping to support digital transformation across the built and managed environment.
Our ultimate vision is a thriving and sustainable built and natural environment transformed by exploiting purpose- driven data. As trusted advisors, we facilitate the implementation and integration of practical information management practices across our built and environmental infrastructure.
Our mission is to inspire, influence, connect and support everyone active in the built environment, and enable them to better manage information vital to the needs of our times.
With trusted data, great things happen.
