The next event in our thinkBIM construction and assembly series will be a joint twilight event with the BIM 4 Manufacturers & Manufacturing Group. on 4th March at Old Broadcasting House in Leeds. The event will start at 17:30 and finish around 19:30.

BIM4M2 is one of the BIM Task Group working groups involving people and organisations concerned with BIM for manufacturers (the organisations) and manufacturing (the process). Members include a healthy mix of manufacturers (SMEs and multi-nationals), consultants and content providers. The group’s long term vision is for the UK construction product manufacturing sector to be recognised as a world leader in the integration of BIM and manufacturing technologies to supply the products and solutions for a sustainable built environment.

Our speakers for this event are:






Chris Witte, Marketing Director for Knauf Insulation @Chrisjwitte

Knauf are a business who has already taken the plunge and have created model objects that are freely available to download for a large proportion of their product range. Chris will be sharing his experiences of this progress.








Alan Balkie, BIM Object @BIMobject

Our second speaker is Alan Baikie, Managing Director for BIM Objects UK. Alan has many years of experience in the construction software industry and now heads up one of the several content creation organisations that are available.

Both Chris and Alan are also key members of the BIM4M2 group – BIM for Manufacturing and Manufacturers with key roles in the Education, Data Templates (PDTs) and Promotion groups within the BIM4M2 organisation







Our third speaker is our good friend of thinkBIM Craig Sewell from Cubicle Centre @cubicle_Craig. Craig is Brand and Marketing Director at Cubicle Centre and has overseen their businesses journey from 2D to 3D, the creation of their own suite of model content and how they are using this to add value for both themselves and their customers.




Preview of the new digital toolkit at the first #TBIM2015

Share This:

At the first ThinkBIM of 2015, an assembled audience of over 40 guests were given a sneak preview of the new NBS Digital Toolkit. Due for initial rollout in April 2015 the aim of this free-to-use toolkit is to provide step-by-step support to define, manage and validate responsibility for information development and delivery at each stage of the asset lifecycle, in preparation for the Government-mandated use of Level 2 BIM on all public sector projects by 2016. NBS was awarded the government contract by the BIM Task Group, in association with Innovate UK.

On the evening 4th February we welcomed Andrew Brook from RIBA Enterprises / NBS to demo progress on the toolkit so far. The evening also featured a presentation from thinkBIM Ambassador, Duncan Reed (djhreed67) on support available to SMEs to assist them with their BIM implementation.  See event storify below for a summary of the evening’s discussions.
