About this event

Through the widespread adoption of BIM an initial estimate of savings to UK construction and its clients is £2bn per year. To achieve this goal the Government set a mandate that public sector centrally procured construction projects will be delivered using BIM by 2016.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a collaborative way of working, underpinned by the digital technologies which unlock more efficient methods of designing, creating and maintaining our assets. BIM embeds key product and asset data in a three-dimensional computer model that can be used for effective management of information throughout a project lifecycle: from earliest concept through to operation.

This presentation will show how BIM Level 2 is being successfully applied to Stonehaven Flood Protection Scheme. It aims to demonstrate the efficiencies and benefits on adopting BIM when working with the complexity of urban environments for long linear projects.

Registration and refreshments from 5.30pm for 6.00pm start.
