Unlocking your BIM specifications with Assa Abloy at our #ceyh2016 breakfast event

Share This:

On the 21st January 2016 we welcomed around 30 individuals from across the regional construction sector back to Addleshaw Goddard’s offices in Leeds for the first of our 2016 constructing excellence breakfast events. Our alliteratively titled “Starting to specify the specifics of your specification” (CEYH Chair, Tom Oulton, was especially proud of that title!) event explored the RIBA Plan of Works Stage 2 from the viewpoint of BIM and product specifications.

Our main speaker for this event was Andy Stolworthy, BIM Manager at Assa Abloy. Assa Abloy are a global supplier of intelligent lock and security solutions formed 1994 through the merger of ASSA in Sweden and Abloy in Finland. Andy joined ASSA ABLOY UK in September 2003 working in a number of technical and product management roles. In his current role, Andy is the Technical and Commercial lead on BIM for the company as well as being a member of the BIM4M2 Data Templates group working to develop a useable platform that can support BIM adoption with a number of industry bodies such as CIBSE. A twitter summary of the key points from Andy’s presentation along with images can be found in the storify below.

Following Andy’s presentation, CEYH Chair Tom Oulton gave an overview of some of the CE supported events happening in our region over the next few months including thinkBIM’s much anticipated 23rd March conference, headlined by David Philp and this year’s Constructing Excellence in Yorkshire and Humber awards.
