S1713 - BIM: Constructing the future

1 day Seminar | Completed

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is efficient, cost-effective and essential to win business, especially in the public sector – but how do you implement it successfully?

By 2016, BIM will be used on every public sector project, and all clients want to exploit these efficiencies on their projects. Building product manufacturers will highlight how embracing BIM supports the changing construction industry and can, in turn, increase the marketability of your products. Through a multi-disciplinary case study, our expert speakers will demonstrate how BIM impacts on workflows on a public sector project and how you can manage these changes successfully.

BIM isn’t just for government projects and large companies. A US case study shows how it was implemented successfully in a 34 person architectural firm. Our speakers will discuss developments in information sharing and specification throughout the BIM process and explore how BIM can aid retrofitting and refurbishment projects using 3D laser scanning.

BIM for manufacturers

Jonah Normand, an expert in Manufacturing Industry and Business Strategy for Autodesk, and a speaker at the event, stressed the importance of BIM for building manufacturers and gave an insight into the key issues he will be addressing:
“Today's manufacturers are under tremendous pressure to squeeze every bit of value out of the assets they possess. That includes the data and technologies that are used to create and access it. At this event, we will explore some of the ways to leverage the investment made in model based data, how to extend that value across your supply chain, and how emerging technologies are allowing manufacturers to rethink the ways in which they deploy, access, and leverage design and engineering tools across their workforce. We will discuss the trends that are shaping the design and construction of the built environment, and the response that is required from manufacturers to support this fundamental change in the way in which we build.”

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear how implementing BIM benefits your clients and your business.
