The BIM In Practice Conference is a free event being held in The Westbury Hotel tomorrow morning. The event’s objective is to show how Building Information Modelling is giving companies in Ireland a competitive advantage.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is used across a range of industries to plan, design, construct, operate and maintain a variety of physical infrastructures. The process involves the use of digital representations of sites to examine their physical and functional characteristics, which then will be used to support decision making. This year, the National BIM Council announced its first digital strategy for Ireland’s construction industry; titled a ‘Roadmap to Digital Transition’. The strategy aims to reduce 20%of industry cost and see a 20% increase in construction exports by 2021.
Tomorrow’s half-day conference will focus on how BIM and design issues are affecting architects; speaking with industry experts, architects and technology leaders to showcase the advantages BIM gives to growing businesses. Dr. Alan Hore, Chairman of CitA, the Construction IT Alliance, will open tomorrow’s event and will look at how we can prepare Ireland’s construction industry for the ‘Digital Transition’. Covering a mixture of topics pertinent to the BIM concept, the event will look at the practicalities of collaboration as well as creative, design-led modelling.
The BIM In Practice Conference will run from 9am – 1pm tomorrow, September 27th. A full agenda can be found on the event’s Eventbrite page, where those interested in attending can register for free.
