ecobuild 2013 - What to do each day

If you are attending ecobuild this year then it would be wonderful if you could find the time to come and attend one of the presentations at the RIBA Village (S1230 and S1330).

Mark Bew being interviewed last year at RIBA Village
There is space to have a sit down and grab a complimentary tea or coffee, maybe browse some books or meet  NBS staff for one-to-one software demonstrations and also there is the return of the successful "bite sized" presentations. Informal 15 minute presentations that you can just turn up to and listen to without the need to book.

Here are the NBS activities each day...

* My 3pm session at the RIBA Village will be a live demo of the plug-in functionality we are developing linking specification with BIM. Disclaimer: NBS Create is not the only software application within a BIM environment :) - but there are also others like Solibri, Revit, ArchiCAD, Vectorworks etc... that our information must flow between.

And elsewhere for BIM fans...
Not a bad day at ecobuild to finish off on with respect to BIM - you can listen to our Market Research Manager Adrian Malleson give his expert opinions on the survey behind the National BIM Report 2013 at 10.30. Then maybe listen to Stefan Mordue talk BIM and Health and Safety at 11.30. Then after a quick bite to eat it is the HM Government session in Seminar Room 2 at 12:30:
All the main players are in the room - Mark Bew, Dave Philp, Simon Rawlinson, Mervyn Richards, Jaimie Johnston and Roy Evans. Find out all you need to know about the latest processes and protocols and the fantastic labs area of the BIM Task Group website.

And if this is all not enough, I'll be on the Twyford Bathrooms stand S320 demonstrating the fantastic new SpecMaster Online tool that our NBS R&D team have developed. Web technology is advancing fast and we think that this is possibly the best online specification tool out there. You will be able to see all of the things you'd expect from an NBS specification tool (template clauses,  guidance and suggested values) - but also linked spaces and systems and products to ensure robust model that can then be exported to a number of formats. I'll be there at 10:30 and 14:15.
14:15 - Twyford Bathrooms SpecMaster Online tool
And to top it all off, we'll also have a ecobuild 2013 blog and our marketing team will be blogging and tweeting throughout the three days. It should be a great event!
