The continuation of this free-to-attend upskilling programme for the rail industry supply chain.
Building Information Modelling is not only the formatted digital representation of an asset and its performance attributes, but also the mode by which Whole Life Cost / Whole Life Value will be enabled, communicated and managed for all UK government supported infrastructure projects.
Key speakers from rail and beyond will investigate the BIM philosophy and methods, while feedback via working groups of delegates will refine the delivery of this contemporary centrepiece for the delivery of a modern railway.
The Phase 1 BIM event, which included HS2 Ltd, Atkins, Virtechs Ltd and BIM for Manufacturers, focused on discussing the delivery of projects in a BIM-enabled way and practical BIM adoption. Feedback revealed we must seize the opportunity to:
Develop greater clarity to determine what BIM Level 2 compliance looks like;
Make data capture and manipulation as seamless as possible;
Develop common, consistent data formats wherever possible;
Address any Intellectual Property concerns.
This is your chance to learn how BIM will benefit your business and to discuss the challenges and considerations of delivering BIM through the UK rail supply chain.
