Description
Synopsis

The Government is due to announce its strategy regarding the future use of BIM on the Government Estate. It is expected that the Government will endorse the Low Carbon Construction Report’s recommendation that BIM should become a key part of the Government's future procurement and operation of its buildings and Government will set a Roadmap leading to a requirement for BIM information from all bidders and contractors on future public sector projects .

Integrated BIM and digital models mean a fundamental change in the design, construction and facility management processes that involves data sharing between all shareholders based on digital models that can be used from a project's early design stages through to completion and monitoring of subsequent performance.

As one of the leading regions for BIM in the UK, the North West are delighted to offer a fantastic opportunity to share the views of Government directly with you – the Centre for Construction Innovation and Constructing Excellence offer you the chance to find out:

What the Government is planning to do with regards to BIM;

The implications this will have for clients (especially those in the Public Sector);

What the next steps will be; and

How you can get help to understand and deliver projects that unlock new ways of working that will reduce cost and add long-term value to the development and management of built assets in the public sector.

If you are already using this technology and want to know how you can influence clients; if you are a client that is already using this technology, but want to know more about it; if you are not using this technology, but would like to or if you are interested in finding out how you can learn more and be signposted to further help and advice – both technical and non-technical – then this seminar is for you.

The Seminar will be Chaired by John Lorimer, Capital Programme Director, Manchester City Council and Chair of the Constructing Excellence BIM Task Group with support from Terry Boniface, Programme Manager at Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, a member of the Government/Industry team developing the Government Strategy. The Seminar will include examples of BIM that are on-going in the region and details of where and how you can get further help - from academic courses [UoS] to signposting and awareness training [CE/CCI].
