We are delighted to offer a very limited number of spaces to this special event at the new Digital Construction Building at New College Durham.

Our speakers from Tilbury Douglas and Ryder Architecture will overview the design of this building which successfully used BIM to design and collaborate. This will give you insight into current technologies.

We will then be given a special tour of the facilities which includes state of the art Virtual Reality, BIM and surveying equipment. This will highlight the potential of these technologies and give you a chance to try them yourself.

Spaces are strictly limited, and you are only asked to book if you plan to attend for catering and space restrictions.

There is plenty of parking on site, including some disabled spots close to the main building entrance. Note there are charging points on site. In the interests of carbon reduction please consider public transport options.

You are requested to arrive from 5:15 for a timely 5:30 start to allow you to sign in. We shall advise of any further arrangements in advance of the event for those who register.
