...and back from ecobuild

My presentation from ecobuild is now online. It can be downloaded by clicking below:

Thanks again to Martyn and Jacqui from Vectorworks for inviting me. It was good to catch up again. Also, nice to grab a beer with Nick Nisbit and chat about how we could possibly get some IFC import and export functionality into the next version of NBS. There are some really exciting opportunities to specify systems/element types in NBS and then export as IFC and then import into any CAD package. Equally, the opportunity to create an building outline in CAD, export to IFC and then import into NBS to create an outline specification is exciting too.

Some photographs from ecobuild below…

Canary Wharf on a dull March afternoon

The Millenium Dome (again) on a dull March afternoon

ExCeL London with building work in the background – with the Olympics on its way this area of London seemed to be one big construction project.

A live demonstration of building with Straw Bales – note the RIBA CPD logo in the background!

Some really nice timber frame exhibition stands

When choosing a hotel room, it’s always nice to have one opposite “the birthplace of IRON MAIDEN” :)
