Despite all the well published benefits that can be derived from digital workflows a large part of the industry still see the risk of adoption as being too great for the apparent rewards.
Fresh from our summer hiatus, we are pleased to announce the details for our star-studded thinkBIM Autumn series themed around design and pre-construction. Not only are we bringing back our unique simulcast event on 14th September but our Autum series will also tackle the previously unexplored areas of BIM in infrastructure and external works.
Duncan Reed, chair of thinkBIM says “we are really pleased to offer another great series of thinkBIM events. The network continues to go from strength to strength; addressing the important issues for the construction industry and offering case studies, knowledge sharing and lessons learnt from people and organisations who are finding lots of different ways to deliver projects and services digitally”

Autumn Series (7th October, 4th November & 2nd December)
Building Bridges with BIM
On October 7th we will be joined by members of the AECOM Mott MacDonald Joint Venture team who are working on the design of the Network Rail Northern Hub. Join us for their fantastic case study of the Ordsall Chord bridge; BIM for infrastructure and new methods of contract delivery using digital workflows.
BIM for Regulations
On the 4th November we will be taking a look at the regulatory side of BIM – how digital processes can ensure better compliance and reduce risk on projects. Our speakers will be covering how BIM delivers improvements for Building Control, can be used to practically implement the requirements of the Construction, Design and Management (CDM) Regulations and case studies around the real contractual implications of delivering BIM on project.
BIM outside the building
In another first for thinkBIM we are really pleased to announce our December conference will be themed around all things BIM and Infrastructure. On 2nd December we will be holding a ‘BIM Outside the Building’ conference. An opportunity to discuss how digital processes should be implemented on infrastructure and external works. Come along to help debate and shape how this part of the industry should be digitalised.
There will be speakers from the Environment Agency, the Highways Agency and the Landscape Institute. We are also looking to run a technology vendors showcase to help the delegates understand the BIM tools that already out there.

But before all of that we are pleased to announce the return of our second thinkBIM simulcast event.
Taking place on the evening of Monday 14th September, in conjunction with Pinsent Masons, we are pleased to announce a total of 6 speakers across two venues in Leeds and London who will be presenting on the following theme;
‘Level 2 – Are we nearly there yet?’
The UK Government’s 2016 deadline is rapidly approaching but is the construction industry really up to delivering everything that is required to be ‘fully Level 2 compliant’? Joining us to give their own views on these themes will be an Architect, an Engineer, a Quantity Surveyor, a Main Contractor, a Specialist Subcontractor and a Supplier. What could possibly go wrong?
We are pleased to announce the following speakers;
more names to be confirmed very soon!
So – two soap boxes, six leading speakers presenting from two fantastic venues and one great debate on the importance or otherwise of the Level 2 deadline.
Spaces for this FREE event are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
Plans are already in hand for events right through to the middle of 2016 but we are always interested to hear about people, businesses and project teams who may want to share their own experiences at our events. If you have a story to tell please contact thinkBIM at firstname.lastname@example.org
