The construction industry is still in general getting to grips with BIM (Building Information Modelling), the facilities management industry has been doing CAFM (Computer Aided Facilities Management) for a good while but how do we splice these two technological solutions together to deliver better assets across the lifecycle?
We have three speakers who are battling, supporting and guiding teams through this process and will be sharing their thoughts and ideas on how to do this.
David Hemmings, Head of Estates at Leeds Beckett University
Dr Medina Jordan, BIM (FM) & Asset Management Advisor at Skanska Facilities Services
Natacha Redon, Project Manager / BIM Co-ordinator at Identity Consult
*PIM – Project Information Model | AIM – Asset Information Model

To get involved join us on 4th May 2016
at Old Broadcasting House, Leeds Beckett University,
Leeds, LS2 9EN
17:30 – 19:30
Here at thinkBIM we’ve always championed the use of data across the entire lifecycle of an asset. We also know that the design and construction industry can sometimes seem to speak a different language to that of the facilities and asset management industry. The translation, transition, transformation of construction phase BIM data in CAFM and asset management systems and processes doesn’t always seem to go as smoothly as suggested. So here at thinkBIM we are pleased to offer help and support to anyone trying to get to grips with these processes.
Wednesday 4th May 2016, 17:30 onwards, Old Broadcasting House, Leeds
In our first twilight seminar of the summer series we will be bringing clients and their advisors together to explain the hows and whys of BIM for FM. How do clients set about engaging with asset information, why should they do this and what can they do to become expert procurers of digital data for their assets?
Wednesday 1st June 2016, 17:30 onwards, Salem’s Chapel, Leeds
Our second twilight seminar offers a unique opportunity to visit a Leeds data centre in a converted Victorian Chapel and hear more about how built asset data links to the wider aspects of both Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the advantages of using Open Data sets to improve digital outcomes.
Wednesday 6th July 2016, 12:30 onwards, Squire Patton Boggs, Leeds
Our summer conference returns to Squire Paton Boggs – but hosted in their new offices in Leeds – and welcomes back Deborah Rowland to speak about the Government Soft Landings programme and Kath Fontana of ISS. We already have some great round table discussions sorted for our conference and will announce more details of these soon.
