About this event

Building Information Modelling (BIM) has grown massively in recent years, being pushed by government initiatives as a means of reducing risk and costs in construction.

Gary Morin (Keynetix) will look at how BIM principles (Process, Collaboration and Whole Life) together with the enabler, 3D Digital Data can be applied to geotechnical engineering to transform a traditional process, with the aim to minimise uncertainty and produce a better site investigation and lead to reduced risk and cost.

Gary Morin

Gary originally trained as a civil engineer and has over 30 years of experience working in the production and support of a range of GIS and CAD software. He is now the Technical Director of Keynetix, developers of HoleBASE, which he co-founded in 2000 to specialise in geotechnical data management software.

He heads up the geotechnical BIM development and is responsible for the design and support services for a range of products designed to manage geotechnical data in the BIM process. In recent years he has been at the forefront of geotechnical BIM and how it can change working practices to enable a better understanding and integration of geotechnical data into the wider construction process.
