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.
