On 9th July 2014 thinkBIM held an Operation and Maintenance half day conference which was our last conference of the summer series. A large number of Construction Professionals attended the event on what promised to be a very interesting and informative day. We had a fantastic line up of speakers and the varied itinerary for the day included:-

•Government Keynote, Deborah Rowland, Head of Property Asset Management   Ministry of Justice
•UK Keynote – Jonathan Chown, Director at Skanska Facilities Services
•Roundtable 1 – ‘The UK COBie Trials’ (Ben Wallbank, Graphisoft)
•Roundtable 2 – Q and A session on Government Soft Landings’ (Deborah  Rowland,Head of Property Asset Management Ministry of Justice)
•Roundtable 3 – Getting the EIRs right for In-Use data’ (Duncan Reed, thinkBIM)
•Roundtable 4 – ‘BIM4FM’ (Peter Barker, BIM Academy)
•Roundtable 5 – Why does BIM rarely make the transition from construction to operations? (Jonathan Chown, Skanska Facilities Services)
•Roundtable 6 – Open Data & The Built Environment’ (Paul Connell, Open Data Institute)
•International Keynote Speaker, Birgitta Foster, ASAI Technologies
•Pecha Kucha Showcase – Presentations with a twist

The conference was a great success and we were even blessed with glorious sunshine for the BIM beers, BBQ and networking afterwards! Our chair for the day was Stephen Hamil, Director of Design and Innovation at RIBA Enterprises. Stephen commented on his blog that ‘One of the regular BIM conferences I attend is the fantastic quarterly thinkBIM event. It’s a pleasure to chair as the quality of speaker is so high and the variety in activities is always of interest’
