Share This:

Wednesday 19th September 2018

12:00  networking lunch and registration, 13:00 to 17:00 for conference programme. Please note: Tours of the college will be offered PRIOR to the networking lunch (approx 11:00 tbc) – if you would like to have a tour please allow for this additional time out of your day.

thinkBIM are pleased to offer their next conference at a new location – the National College for High Speed Rail in Doncaster, thanks to our event sponsors Bond Bryan Architects. This multi-award winning project will be host to keynote speakers from both the architectural and structural team who designed the scheme and the Chief Executive of the National College for High Speed Rail. Whether you are wanting to improve your own digital skills or those for your business we will be offering tips and techniques, guidance on delivering truly collaborative digital workflows as well as the opportunity to see the state of art facilities on a College tour.

This really is shaping up to be a truly amazing thinkBIM event.

FULL PROGRAMME

Keynotes

Clair Mowbray, the Chief Executive of the National College for High Speed Rail outlines the need for modern training and the role of the College for developing UK Infrastructure.

 

Rob Jackson from Bond Bryan Digital, will discuss how the industry has begun to move forward with their collaborative journey but yet still too often the models produced are not fully focussed on the ‘I’ in BIM. This keynote shares Bond Bryan Digital’s approach and thinking about the goal of Better Information Management (BIM) built around a fully open approach.

Lee Barnett and Richard Osbond from Curtins explains the digital role of the structural engineer and describes their journey to BIM Level 2 Verification by BSI.

Update

thinkBIM Chair, Duncan Reed and Niraj Mistry from the BIM Alliance Special Projects Group will be giving an update on the latest in BIM and Digital with a particular focus on upskilling.

Round Table Discussions (confirmed so far, more to be added!)

Andrew Tewksbury, Arcadis: How the rail industry is looking to develop commercial benefits from the use of digital information.

Rob Jackson, Bond Bryan Digital: The benefits of open data workflows and processes.

Lee Barnett, Curtins: The process and advantages of being BIM Level 2 certified.

The “Final Session”

Known for offering something a little different from your average conference closer, for our September conference we have arranged for a presentation and demo of the new Trimble Connect for Hololens. This technology utilises mixed reality for project coordination by providing precise alignment of holographic data on the construction site or in the factory, enabling workers to review models overlaid in the context of the physical environment.

+ Tours of the multi-award winning facility (most recently crowned Building Project of the Year at the Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber Awards)
