If anyone knows anyone who would be interested in writing software for a free BIM tool here is a request for submissions in the UK.

It would be really interesting to see a submission based on use of libre software.


From their site:

The Technology Strategy Board is to invest up to £1.5m to support the development of a free-to-use digital tool that can exploit the standards being made publicly available for building information modelling (BIM).
We are running this SBRI competition in partnership with the BIM Task Group and the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS)
As a process, BIM involves the sharing of three-dimensional data by all those responsible for the design, construction and operation of buildings and infrastructure in the built environment. 
This competition will bring together the construction, digital and high- powered computing communities.
A free-to-use tool has the potential to transform the procurement of buildings and infrastructure, and not just in home markets. It will place the UK in a global leadership position and provide overseas growth opportunities. 
SBRI competitions are open to all organisations that can demonstrate a route to market for their solution.
In phase 1, up to £50k is available for feasibility studies of up to six weeks. In phase 2, a single participant from phase 1 may receive up to £1m for a six-month project of further development. In both phases, successful applicants will receive development contracts funded at 100%. 
We will award development contracts to a single organisation. We are encouraging applicants to collaborate with other organisations, on a sub-contractor basis, to enhance their solution. It is the responsibility of the main contractor to manage sub-contractors.
The competition opens on 10 February 2014. The deadline for registration is at noon on 12 March 2014 and the deadline for applications is at noon on 19 March 2014
Register for the webinar which will take place on 14 February, to find out more information about the competition.
