Building Information Modeling (BIM): Looking Through Paper – into a Digital Wonderland

BIM is the ‘in’ word but what does it actually mean and how does a BIM process impact the deliverable from design to build and from build to operate? Presented by Geraldine Rayner Architect AIBC, this session aims to be thought-provoking, challenging currently accepted processes, encouraging consideration of alternative electronic means of communication and pondering the benefit to be gained from being able to see through the paper, to read the data. Question this session will address include:

  • What are you and your staff actually doing when they work with a BIM enabled piece of software?
  • What are the standards, BIM PEP’s (Project Execution Plan) and LOD / MPS’s (Level of Development / Model
  • Progression Specification) and why do we need them?
  • What are Owners / Operators hearing and starting to ask for?
  • What are the risks in moving, or not moving, in this new direction?
