Event description

Description

Join us for the BIM Conference 2017 where leading experts will discuss recent developments and provide valuable insights into the future of BIM. Understand the benefits of widespread use of BIM in the construction industry, assess the impact of Level 2 BIM, learn how future Government initiatives will promote further BIM uptake, explore the very latest BIM technology and analyse examples of best practice.


The use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) on UK Government funded projects has already resulted in £3 billion in cost savings. According to the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, while the construction industry is often criticised for delivering projects “late and over budget”, BIM offers “predictability”, “effectiveness” and “efficiency”. The Government has been quick to acknowledge the environmental and economic benefits of BIM. Since 2016, all construction firms bidding for central Government contracts have been required to have Level 2 BIM status. With focus now shifting to Level 3 BIM, there has never been a more exciting time for the digital construction sector.

Topics covered on the day will include:

  • How can organisations positively implement BIM?
  • How does the construction industry share information and what needs to change to enable closer collaboration?
  • What are the main concerns and barriers to Level 3 BIM?
  • How can BIM be used to improve project and cost management?
  • What role does GIS play in the BIM lifecycle?
  • Is the UK still a world leader in BIM and what areas need improvement?

Speakers on the day will include:

  • Graeme Forbes, CEO, Clearbox BIM
  • Alan George Muse, Global Director of Built Environment, RICS
  • Jason Underwood, Professor in the Digital Built Environment, Salford University


The university is currently offering limited funded places to the Public Sector, if you wish to speak with our team contact them directly here.
