BIM 2010

BIM 2010 is a conference and workshop for those who want to work out how building information can help them. Well known industry speakers will introduce five key questions about BIM.

Delegates will discuss these amongst themselves and vote on what they see as the best way forward. The questions will cover:

  • Who owns the Building Information Model?
  • How can we make money from BIM?
  • How can we persuade clients that BIM is worthwhile?
  • What do we need to do to make BIM happen?

The delegate’s answers will then be presented to Paul Morrell, Chief Construction Adviser. The conference will be chaired by John Lorimer, Manchester City Council.

The organisation behind BIM 2010 – UKCG, Constructing Excellence, BSRIA, RIBA, CPN, CPIC,including RICS, CIBSE, CIAT and ICE, as well as BIFM, buildingSMART and the MBE KTN are working together to provide a stimulating day for all delegates. They will each take the messages that delegates give forward into their activities.

There are many opportunities to learn more about BIM this autumn, and BIM 2010 is an opportunity to bring that learning together. It will complement a number of other conferences from institutions and supplier organisations to make a step change to the speed of implementation of BIM.

We all know that the business benefits from BIM grow exponentially as more people get involved and are delighted to be part of a real campaign for BIM this autumn.
