Thinking About BIM Conference

A quick blog post to promote the following 1/2 day conference. A few of the NBS R&D team will be attending.

RIBA CPD2010 Extras - Thinking about BIM?

½ day Conference
Date: Wednesday 5th May 2010
Time: 9:30am - 12:30pm followed by lunch
Venue: Sutherland Great Hall, Northumbria University

The Building Information Modelling (BIM) revolution has been advancing quietly, steadily and irreversibly over the past decade.
At the heart of the BIM approach is the ability to share information and work collaboratively, so that we can raise our game. There are benefits for all – from better communication between designer and client, to a smoother construction process and more effective management of the asset over its whole life-cycle.
Sustainability is high on the agenda. BIM offers the opportunity to create more efficient buildings. Energy analysis and life-cycle costing can be done using the building model.
Thinking about BIM? is a call to action. Many clients and suppliers have yet to adopt BIM. This seminar/conference is for you. BIM technologies are available, you will hear about successful users in the North East, and those yet to embark will gain insight into the benefits of BIM, and how to go about it, by listening to industry professionals at this event.
