Topic: "Experiences in BIM"


BPN Architects - Phill Shepherd

Topic: "Road Block Ahead - Our B(i)M Reality."

B(i)M reality highlights the personal experiences and challenges encountered in implementing a BIM mentality from start to finish in projects. What happens when clients aren't BIM literate, projects require flexibility and traditional procurement methods are abandoned?


BM3 Architects - Aleksander Gil

Topic: BIM in Residential Sector

An insight into 3D Modelling and Information Management within the residential sector, looking at scheme specific approaches and future possibilities.


CORSTORPHINE + WRIGHT - Anthony Woodsford & Simon Crosby

Topic: What Happens when the Client doesn’t want BIM?

A guide on how to sell the efficiencies of BIM.

IDP Group - James Fleming & Funsho Parrott

Designing with BIM?

A practical and accessible look at how + when BIM is useful + when it may not be.


ETC Design - Helen Farmer

Early Adventures in BIM: A Case Study

A journey through the early stages of level 1 BIM, and guidance on lessons learned both on this project and others, to hopefully aid you in avoiding some of the pitfalls.


Broadway Malyan - John Arnott

Topic: The Next Generation
Building upon his first year transforming Broadway Malyan’s working methodologies and digital technologies, Jon will discuss how he and his team are gearing up for the year ahead, trialling new technologies they are looking to implement and assist the technical teams to deliver projects easier and work with clients in a more integrated manner; ultimately leading to better outcomes for both the practice and their clients.


BDP Architects - Alistair Kell


One Creative Environments - Jason Whittall

Topic: Data attribution within BIM for usable outputs

With the AEC industry now becoming well versed with creating 3D geometry for construction projects, this session will take an in-depth look into data attribution within BIM.


Glenn Howells Architects - Radu Axinte

Topic: Growing with BIM
Radu Axinte, from Glenn Howells Architects, will discuss how the Wardian London project progressed from having no 3D requirements to implementing BIM in all it's major trade contractor's appointments and how BIM benefits the Practice and its projects."


Glancy Nicholls Architects & Arup - Alexa Woodward & Derek Lawrence

The development of BIM for new build proposals has developed significantly over the last few years with significant growth and progression into facilities and asset management. However the evolution of BIM for existing buildings and the value that can be achieved from implementing this process still remains largely underdeveloped and simplistic. This provides the opportunity to understand the context, benefits, methods and media available in order to progress both understanding, efficiencies and engagement of clients and end users in more interactive and comprehensive manner.


Stride Treglown - Tom Gould

Topic: Linking BIM to CAFM - turning asset data into knowledge

A case study of Stride Treglown's BIM Level 2 delivery of Bristol Business School at the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol). In particular, the realities of delivering useful asset data for post occupancy facilities management systems.


CULLINAN STUDIO - Peter Inglis

Topic: BIM in the National Automotive Innovation Centre

The talk will look at NAIC as a case study in using BIM within a complex project: the largest facility of its type in Europe. I will look at how a single set of information has been used for visualisation, collaboration, manufacture, construction and operation. How we have learned from the automotive industry's use of models and visualisation to apply new ways of working to our projects.


Armitage Shanks - Lee Jones

Title: BIM from a manufacturer’s perspective – Walking the walk and talking the erm, common data language,

Blurb: Lee Jones from Ideal Standard discusses how BIM has affected the manufacturer. What the expectations are upon them in today’s environment and sheds some light on content creation, the common data language and offers suggestion for future consideration.

Topic: Significance, interpretation and the role of hybrid modelling for BIM in existing buildings and historic contexts.

The development of BIM for new build proposals has developed significantly over the last few years with significant growth and progression into facilities and asset management. However the evolution of BIM for existing buildings and the value that can be achieved from implementing this process still remains largely underdeveloped and simplistic.

4.30 Event Conclusion



BIM in Birmingham 2018 is a project by the RIBA & aae in partnership with Birmingham City University and is proudly sponsored by Delta Light & Armitage Shanks.


Over the last two years, Victoria Farrow, Programme Director of the BA architecture course at Birmingham School of Architecture and Design and Conor Nolan, Project Manager at the Royal Institute of British Architects have worked to develop and shape an event that looks to meets the needs of industry professionals and students. Following the huge successes of the January 2017 event, the pair decided to work on engaging even bigger numbers and offering opportunities for more students and practitioners to become involved in BIM 2018.

Take a look at BIM in Birmingham 2017 here: https://www.architecture.com/knowledge-and-resources/knowledge-landing-page/bim-in-birmingham



BCU Program Director & BIM in Birmingham creator Victoria Farrow:

"It's fantastic to have the opportunity to run this event again but on a larger scale. Being able to offer students, from BCU and also surrounding universities nationally, with the chance to participate in a professional conference such as this, to gain experience, knowledge and also build their own networking contacts is a privilege and an experience that I hope will go onto help them further their own careers. Similarly, I am delighted to welcome national and international practitioners to our facilities where they will be able to learn about BIM, network with colleagues and to engage with architects and designers who are at the top of the tier when it comes to BIM processes and practices. We at the Birmingham school of architecture and design are really looking forward to January 2018!"

RIBA Project Manager and BIM in Birmingham creator Conor Nolan:

“In the space of a year, we have gone from being a regional conference to an international event, with guests and delegates from Europe and South America visiting and six universities also in attendance. The growth of BIM in Birmingham is a real testament to the quality of BIM pioneers who presented in 2017 and who are supporting us again in 2018. We aim to help both our members and our students access new knowledge and skills and this Expo is a great vehicle for doing that.
