Description:

BIM marks a significant sea change in the construction industry and one which organisations need to implement in a short space of time to meet public sector and, increasingly, private sector requirements. Partnering and collaborative working initiatives were optional. Many BIM projects will be mandatory and the use of BIM will grow until it becomes the industry norm. At some point you will need to choose if you are in the BIM sector or not.

“Construction 2.0”
Rob Charlton, Chief Executive, Space Group

“The government’s Construction 2025 is, I believe, the Egan Report with a different cover, and this time the technology has transformed everything. The iPad generation are using Twitter and other social media to discuss building information modelling 24/7… I would go so far as to say that BIM has allowed the rising generation to create Construction 2.0.”

[Rob Charlton: “We need to talk about collaboration – Pulling together UK construction” by Dave Stitt]

Rob will discuss Construction 2.0. and his views as to how BIM has brought about its inception.

Space Group includes space architects, BIM.Technologies, bimstore, CAMPUS and Volula. Rob has operated as an architect for over 20 years and brings this knowledge and experience to the strategic direction of each business within the group. Under Rob’s leadership, Space Group has focussed on improving the construction lifecycle through their BIG BIM framework.

BIM – Are we ready?
William M Reid, Chartered Civil and Structural engineer, WMR Consultancy

Bill will look at the change in approach and certain attitudes that BIM demands, asking if the construction industry is ready for the government’s key 2016 target.

Bill is a Fellow of the Institutions of both the Structural and the Civil Engineers and his contribution to stadium design and foundation engineering was recognised by the Royal Academy of Engineers by his election as a Fellow of that prestigious body. He is Chairman of the Scottish Group of the Institution of Structural Engineers.

BIM – The Small Print
Jilly Petrie, Associate, bto solicitors

Jilly will look at the impact BIM is having on construction contracts and insurance, with a focus on the additional obligations on the project team. She will also provide an insight into the potential liabilities that the project team, including the BIM Manager, may face going forward in this time of significant change.

Jilly specialises in contentious construction law and construction related property insurance work. She provides advice on construction related insurance policy issues and deals with complex construction and engineering disputes.

Getting Your Business Ready for BIM
Brian Jukes, Director of Business Fix Ltd

BIM could have the most significant impact on your business in the next 5 years. Brian will look at the 3 main strategy considerations for introducing BIM into your business and provide his insight into steps you can take now to prepare for BIM

  • What does it mean for you as a designer, consultancy, contractor or subcontractor? 
  • Can you do something now to take advantage of BIM or should you wait and see what is required from you?

Brian is a business consultant working with construction industry businesses and organisations. Business Fix provides strategy, marketing, bidding and management training to the construction industry.
