Arup And KPF Front Panel At BIM Event


The British Information Modelling event will take place for the second time on 24th October 2016 at Arup’s London Headquarters. Following a success earlier this year, the October event will consist of a BIM-focused seminar and open panel discussion to take a closer look at the developments that are leading the industry.

The event, sponsored by Arup Digital under the leadership of Volker Buscher, which brings together innovators and construction industry experts, will explore possible solutions for improving collaboration between architects, developers, engineers and contractors and the business benefits that can be gained from this. It will also explore recent advances in BIM technology and implementation in different sectors.

The main event of the evening will be an open panel session hosted by Arup’s Casey Rutland. The expert panel will include KPF’s Cobus Bothma and Martin Coyne, Arup’s Luke Cooper and Graphisoft’s Andrew Norrie. The panel will share their experiences with the digitisation of the built environment and their ideas on collaboration on construction projects, smarter designs for smart cities and sensor data processing.

The event will also see presentations from exciting new technology innovators including: CartoConsult, 3D Repo, Sablono, Basestone and OpenSenors. Guests will learn how virtual reality makes construction sites safer and how process monitoring improved the delivery of the Louvre project in Abu Dhabi.

The evening is organised by 3D Repo, the company behind multi-award winning technology that allows complex BIM datasets from multiple sources to be stored and easily accessed anywhere via the web.

The British Information Modelling event will take place on 24th October from 6:30pm to 9pm at Arup HQ, Fitzroy Street. Tickets can be booked in advance online.

The event is a lead up to Digital Construction Week which will take place 26th – 28th October at Business Design Centre, London.
