Workshop 1 - BIM Foundations: Are We BIM-ing Yet?
Lead Instructor: William Myers, Director of Operations, Global eTraining
Are you looking to sharpen your understanding of what BIM is, or review how BIM can benefit your company?
This workshop aims to provide a better understanding of the basics of BIM, then moving into practical concepts and workflows, which have been proven effective globally.
Some key issues this workshop will cover are:
Are you really doing BIM?
• Levels of BIM - What are you trying to accomplish?
• Impacts to workflow, culture, technology itself.
• BIM – what is it good for? (Visualization, Virtualization, Project Management)
• What is BIM and why?
• Benefits and Challenges of BIM
• Terminology - Strategy Stage, Project Planning, Operational Phase
• BIM Acronyms
BIM Roles and Responsibilities
• Overview of Roles
• Client Driven Roles
• Supplier Roles
• Role of Information Management
Workshop 2 - BIM For Practitioners: Collaborative BIM Workflows & Processes for all Stakeholders
Lead Instructor: Martin Neault, Major Projects BIM Leader, DIALOG
Evolving project delivery brings quick changes in process methodology. Understand how new processes and changes in the working culture are opening opportunities to a more collaborative and integrated way of delivering projects. The dynamics are different today and continuously moving to a more collaborative working philosophy.
BIM is moving stakeholders out of their silos with a different workflow. Learn how some AEC leaders are managing the process of interoperability and collaboration in a successful way including the design team and contractor/trades through BIM project Execution Plan.
Workshop 3 - BIM for Owners: Expectations, Challenges and Rewards
Lead Instructor: Geraldine Rayner, Director Architect AIBC BA DipArch RIBA LEED®AP, SummitBIM
BIM is transforming architecture, engineering, and construction. Yet, many Building Owners are not seeing the full benefit of data flowing through the building life cycle from design and construction to facilities management. Why not?
This workshop will work through the steps that need to be considered to control this new digital process so that the maximum benefits can be reaped. Starting from the very beginning – what the definition of BIM should be for Building Owners – this is a fast-paced, interactive session:
• Demonstrates why you can’t afford to ignore BIM from a business case perspective;
• Offers insights into the challenges for an Owner and how to overcome them;
• Delivers a practical outline for defining a BIM process that meets expectations;
• Offers proven tactics for reaping the rewards of BIM in Facilities Management.
Hope to see you there.
