About this event

This is the second in a series of three lectures on Building Information Modelling (BIM).

A brief introduction overview of DE/BIM, illustrating with case studies how Laing O’Rourke implements it - simulating in a virtual environment the complete structure in advance of construction in order to achieve huge efficiencies in design and construction, cost savings, and quality assurance. A demonstration of how BIM is utilised in reality onsite, by integrating the data information; operating with maximum efficiency; reducing operational and management costs on project; leading to greater predictability, improved health & safety, reduced waste and, ultimately, greater corporate competitiveness and increased client satisfaction.

Registration and refreshments from 5.45pm for a 6.15pm start.

For further information, please contact Michael Mudie m.d.mudie@dundee.ac.uk

The third and final lecture will take place on 23 March at University of Dundee.
