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.

ROUNDTABLE SESSIONS

One of the things that our delegates like best about our events are the round table sessions. These present a real opportunity for greater discussion, understanding and learning and this conference’s sessions are looking as good as ever.

Pete Hughes, Whittam Cox Architects . In his round table Pete will be discussing why do BIM on residential schemes, how to execute a successful digital project and what might be the biggest game-changers with regards to BIM technology over the next 5 years?

Adam Holmes, Interim Design Manager at East Riding Council. Adam will focus on how to engage clients to talk about digital processes in a language they understand, demystifying OIRs, AIRs, and EIRs into digital requirements defined using Plain Language Questions.

Richard Whitaker, WM Housing. His round table will look at how to gain benefits from accurate design and material schedules, reducing up front design costs, accurately modelling the life of a building, the 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

INZENKA. We are pleased to announce our fourth round table which will be focusing on the technology being developed to automate the tracking of offsite manufactured goods and materials. With the Government stating that offsite manufacturing will be the presumed method of delivery for their schemes by 2019 it will be imperative that the construction industry learns how to operate as manufacturers. Fujitsu GlobeRanger is an IoT solution that provides real-time connectivity across on- and off-site construction facilities to manage to the production, construction and post-build facilities management of prefabricated material.

 

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE KEYNOTE

For our final session, we will be welcoming back a School of Built Environment and Engineering alumnus and one of the early adopters of BIM, Philippe Laurent de Senneville, to deliver an International Keynote from Doha. Now working as Sub Progamme Manager for Faithful+Gould, Laurent will be presenting on Collaborative Procurement Strategies.

Speakers

Karen Alford, BIM/GSL Programme Executive will be returning to give delegates an insight into the Environment Agency’s digital journey and their next step.

As an asset owner the EA has spent time documenting and structuring standards, data and document requirements.  This helped shaped their Employer’s Information Requirements and their overall approach to digitising their business processes. Karen will also be outlining what’s next on their digital journey- the sharing of asset information through API capabilities in their infrastructure maintenance programme.

Trevor Mossop, Technical Services Manager, JT Mackley & Co. Ltd, will be presenting on their businesses experience in Connecting Data and looking at how BIM on coastal and flood defence projects can be linked to Geographical Information Systems to provide easily accessible asset information.

Trevor discusses the challenges Mackley faced on the Environment Agency flood protection project at Shoreham, West Sussex, including his involvement in the development of a new BC module looking at how to make better, mobile use of geospatial data and how to engage users in the field with minimal BIM knowledge or training.

Sakthy Selvakumaran, Engineering Director and CBS Consultants, an ICE Schools Ambassador and listed as a Forbes 2016 Top 30 under 30 in Europe in Engineering and Manufacturing.

Sakthy is a Chartered Engineer who has worked across different roles, continents and cultures. These roles include designing new structures on mega-projects like Crossrail, assessment to upgrade UK infrastructure assets, and working on sites to resolve critical construction issues.

Sakthy will be presenting on her University of Cambridge PhD research on “Can satellites really detect millimetre-scale movements from space?”

+ BIM FOCUSSED INDUSTRY UPDATE

+ ROUND TABLE DISCUSSIONS

+ NETWORKING LUNCH

+ THE INFAMOUS FINAL SESSION

Our final session this time will take a lively look at the NBS BIM Report 2018. The report, which was published on 10th May 2018, is the seventh report compiled and published by the NBS and tries to tell a story of where the UK Construction industry believes it is as in terms of BIM adoption. But do these statistics tell the real picture? We will challenge delegates over some of the headline figures, leading the discussion as to what these figures might really mean and where the industry might really be at in terms of BIM Adoption. So, in the footsteps of Benjamin Disraeli once said (or possibly Mark Twain!!) we will finish off our summer conference with lies, damned lies and statistics.

Cost:

£80 per delegate or FREE for Yorkshire & Humber Constructing Excellence Club members
