This year at ecobuild the BIM Seminar series has been put together by NBS.

  • Wednesday 4th March - I'm on at 12noon giving a demonstrating of the BIM Toolkit project. At 1pm the BIM4M2 group will be discussing what BIM means for manufacturers.

  • Thursday 5th March - Paul Fletcher will be starting the day at 11am looking at BIM facts and fiction. Alison Watson will be presenting how the young students are learning about digital design from an early age now.
