When I 1st heard about this event I was very excited as it confirmed that the BIM movement was well under way in the UK and this event provide it as even in the current ecconomic climate over 350 delegates still paid a fair buck to attend.
David Philp - Director of BIM Implementation gives us a run down on how he see's his role and vision over the next 5 years (with some classic slides including the BIMbineharvester)
End of the day Q&A
The event was around BIGBim Philosophy (see BIG BIM little bim book by Finith E. Jernigan and BIGBIM website by _space group)
The structure of the day was good with 4 sessions each focusing on the 4 key stages of BIG BIM with each speaker highlighting and showing off their everyday use of BIM.
Sessions I attended were:
Facilities Modelling from BIM - Paul Marsland, NG Bailey
BIMM: Building Information modelling and lifecycle management, Ed Bartlett, Kykloud
The Client Role in BIM - John Lorimer, MCC
Delivering BIM - Shaun Farrell, Zaha Hadid
A big thanks to all the presenters and to everyone in the background that made this possible but especially the guys at _space group.
One of the key moments was picking up this little beauty - cheers James.
After the event I was lucky to been invited to the BD BM Tweetup for some further BIM discussion.
