The is the Annual General Meeting of Survey4BIM.
This is your chance to hear about the things we have been involved with in 2016, what we are planning for 2017 (and beyond) and for your to get involved.
As part of the agenda, we will brief you on the BIG 5 Geospatial Challenges and where we are with our plan (or 'roadmap').
Survey4BIM is part of the UK BIM Alliance.

Context to Survey4BIM and UK BIM Implementation:
Over the next five years, building information modelling (BIM) will drive not just transformation of the built environment, but also the geospatial industry itself. Its successful implementation is dependent n collaboration across all participants. The survey profession needs to be at the forefront of geo-enabling BIM.
The vision for BIM is clear, but its implementation in a geospatial context is not. These challenges are technical and, to a certain degree, cultural and ones where the geospatial profession has a significant and unique contribution to add. If BIM does not address the geospatial challenges, there is a risk the geospatial industry will not only miss a huge opportunity to be a key player in BIM, but become complicit in watching it fail.
The Survey4BIM believe BIM is a huge opportunity for the geospatial industry — not only to deliver commercial benefits for clients, for your business, for the UK industry, but to deliver the social benefits which BIM can enable.
Please arrive 16:15 at the latest for a prompt start at 16:30.
Kindly hosted by RICS
Attendance is FREE, but you need to sign-up before this event for security reasons.
MORE ABOUT THIS GROUP IN GENERAL
What is this group about?
Survey4BIM is a cross-industry group open to all organisations involved in the survey, collection, management, processing and delivery of geospatial information within a BIM context.
The groups make up is reflective of the sector, involving clients, contractors, consultants, suppliers, sub-contractors, institutions and other bodies.
Our mission is to provide a forum for survey organisations and industry professionals to collaborate and share their journey putting “BIM into practice”, and to provide best practice guidance documents on survey matters relating to BIM.
In order to achieve this, the Survey4BIM Management Committee has identified seven goals:
1 - Provide leadership in establishing how surveyors provide an integral and continuous role to the BIM process and the importance of geospatial information.
2 - Share knowledge and learning between its members
3 - Establish collaborative links to Universities and academia – education of the full supply-chain
4 - Produce and publish best practise guidance to organisations, clients and industry professionals on survey matters relating to BIM in the form of Technical Notes and Guidance Documents.
5 - Coordinate the Survey4BIM related activities undertaken by survey bodies and institutions.
6 - Promote survey related case studies, which demonstrate best practice and the integrated management of geospatial information across all stages of the asset lifecycle.
7 - Represent the surveying profession in wider discussions on BIM and act as a partner to the Cabinet Office BIM Task Group
