RICS BIM Conference 2012

RICS BIM Conference 2012

Monday, 19th December 2011

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is already being adopted across the construction industry.

Pioneered by cutting edge professionals this collaborative, integrated working process is set to revolutionise the construction sector redefining the relationships between construction professionals.

A new RICS conference aims to dispel the myth that BIM is simply a technology issue and explains how the adoption of BIM will require changes in workflow, practices and procedures. Specifications, regulations, costs and products will have to be standardised.

With a keynote address from Paul Morrell, the Government’s Chief Construction Adviser, the day will open with a review of the Government’s expectations of BIM followed by an exciting programme that examines the changing roles of quantity surveyors and project managers, legal and contractual implications and importantly the clients’ perspective on BIM.

Sessions on the practical implications on cost planning and collaborative working and the impact of BIM on infrastructure projects make this a useful event for construction professionals.
