Actions and Detail Panel
Aligning BIM for Infrastructure
Thu 27 April 2017, 17:30 – 21:00 BST
Event Theme: "Aligning BIM for Infrastructure"
Come along to hear about open data exchange standards, related to BIM, what they are, why we need them, how they are being aligned to the needs of Infrastructure (e.g. Rail, Road, Utilities, Telecoms etc) and some example of where these are being used already on Infrastructure projects and operations.
We will also explain what BIM4 Infrastructure UK is, who we are, what we do and our mission and goals are - and how YOU can get involved. Also, we welcome an update from the BuildingSMART 'InfraRoom' ().
This is a joint event with BuildingSMART UKI and the ICE BIM Action Group.
This is a FREE event, but please sign-up for security and so we know numbers.

Thank you to our hosts:
Martin Simpson is a Reader at the Civil Engineering and Industrial Design at the University of Liverpool. He is passionate about holistic design and using innovation and technology to solve challenging engineering problems. He is a structural engineer by background and has led the technical design on many national and international stadia around the world. He also sits on several industry BIM committees and has been a Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Professor in the field of BIM at the University of Salford and a Associate Director at Arup. Martin is a “hands on” engineer working on the technical detail and delivery of projects that include challenging and complex geometry.
Phil Jackson BSc, CEng, FICE, FRSA
BuildingSMART UKI - BuildingSMART UKI -(InfraRoom)
Phil is a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers with many years of practical experience in design and construction. He is an acknowledged leader in the deployment of Information Technology in Infrastructure Design, Construction and Operational Management. His background and experience has encompassed most aspects of the construction industry from buildings through infrastructure to asset management.
Phil is a Tutor in BIM at the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).
He is passionate about the use of data as an asset and seeing it used throughout the lifecycle of the built environment. And he feels strongly that BIM has too long been seen as a 3D modelling solution and not the information management tool it really is. He is therefore actively involved in helping asset owners, designers, builders and operators in developing strategies that capture manage and leverage this information.
He has been involved in some of the world’s most prestigious projects including the UK Channel Tunnel, Hong Kong’s Airport, Heathrow Terminal 5, Dubai Festival City, Masdar City in Abu Dhabi, & London Crossrail.
He is a member of the London Crossrail BIM Advisory Panel and has worked with the UK BIM Taskgroup as a team member developing strategy and supported the delivery of BIM to government departments majoring on BIM for Infrastructure for the Highways Agency and the Environment Agency. Most recently he has joined the Atkins team assisting the UK High Speed 2 Rail project in implementing information management solutions to the project.
