Share This:

Wednesday 5th December 2018

Half-Day Conference (12:00 registration and lunch, 13:00 to 17:00)

Squire Patton Boggs, Leeds

ABOUT

As part of our continued drive to provide a platform for the BIM4Communities (the various groups of advocates promoting BIM adoption across different AEC industry specialists),  we are very pleased to announce our December conference will be delivered in conjunction with the BIM4Housing group and will feature examples of best practice in digitisation in relation to the residential and housing sectors.

The housing market has been making great strides in digital adoption and with the demand for housing continuing to rise it is only right that we showcase the best in class in this sector.

BIM4Housing is a cross-industry group open to all organisations involved in the design, construction, management and delivery of housing, both private and affordable. Membership of BIM4Housing is reflective of the sector, involving clients, contractors, consultants, suppliers, subcontractors and other interested bodies.

KEYNOTES

Richard Whittaker, WM Housing
Richard brings a wealth of knowledge as the Director of Development at WM Housing.
As a social housing client he is a fantastic advocate for the digitisation of assets; gaining benefits from accurate design and material schedules, reduced up front design costs, accurately modelling the life of a building, benefits in terms of design repetition, quick and efficient changes at planning stage and a much more detailed interactive view of the plans at consultation stage.

Anne Kemp, Director at Atkins for BIM Strategy and Development and chair of the UK BIM Alliance
Anne is the convenor of the ISO19650 Committee who has taken the UK standards for BIM Level 2, BS1192:2007+A2:2016 and PAS1192-2:2013, through to the International ISO standard that the world will adopt. Hear first-hand what the differences are between these documents and how the move to ISO can help UK construction businesses to benefit both in the UK and abroad.
