Join us on our tour to hear more about how the UK BIM Alliance is facilitating the Digital Transformation of the Built Environment with and for the Industry. Alongside news from the Alliance, including buildingSMART updates, there will be real-life examples and case studies shared by the industry.

On March 27th we are in Newcastle where we have a number of different speakers who are sharing their thoughts on “How & why you implemented BIM within your business and what, if any, difference it has made to the business highlighting any specific projects”.

Opening the event will be BIM Regions North East co-chair Phil Simpson who will provide an update on the upcoming activities for the region.

Sarah Davidson from the UK BIM Alliance will share the latest updates from the Alliance including news about the projects the Alliance are working on as well as a standards update and let you know how you can get involved. Can we adopt agile management for construction projects? This is the question that Mohammad Saki from the University of Greenwich will answer in his presentation.

Graham Kelly from the BIM Academy will discuss the recent Smart Connected Building project which aimed to integrate building design information, sensor data and user feedback to produce meaningful alerts and advice to builders and owners.

May Winfield from BIM4Legal and co-author of the WinfieldRock report will consider the main legal and contractual issues of BIM and provide some practical tips on mitigating the risks.

Our final speaker for the evening is George Mokhtar from Turner & Townsend who will be sharing his own perspective and experiences of delivery BIM, concise timeline with lessons learnt and an honest self-reflection.

All of the speakers will be sharing their experience in the world of BIM giving you the opportunity to ask them any questions. If you would rather not ask publicly at the event, then there is a box to enter your question when you register.
