Workshops

Delegates will be able to choose four from twelve workshop sessions throughout the afternoon. The following topics are already confirmed.

BIMcloud: Working as a Team

BIMcloud provides a platform for collaboration on projects within the office and over the Internet. Multiple team members efficiently work on a single model, dramatically reducing the amount of data being transferred. This session will explain how a team can simultaneously work on a “Virtual Building”, with instant element reservation and communication tools.

Information Management and Model Checking

Bond Bryan Digital have been working as Information Manager on a new £170million laboratory building for the University of Cambridge. In this session they share how they are tackling this role to manage and deliver high quality digital information. In particular, this session will explain Bond Bryan’s approach to model checking using Solibri at the heart of an openBIM process.

Level of Definition & Objects

A building information model contains both graphical and non-graphical information, accurately linked, clearly defined and well structured. As stages progress and proposals develop, the graphical and non-graphical data builds in a shared digital space. This session will provide an overview of the term “Level of Definition” with reference to objects, and managing and accessing data.

Mobile Communication & Virtual Reality (VR)

VR enables better understanding of design requirements before the foundations are laid, reducing waste, cost, and misunderstanding. This session will outline the virtual building concept and model-based project workflow, mobile communication, and VR.
