BIM Conference 2015

BSI's BIM Conference 2015

This engaging and interactive event will provide you with an unique opportunity to hear from leading industry experts and standards makers about increasingly important role of BIM in all areas of the construction and civil engineering industry. It will review the role of information standards in facility design, construction and operation, including how BSI can support the adoption of BIM. The Conference will discuss current best practice and how this is evolving to support collaborative working and sharing structured data within contractual relationships and in the open market.

In addition, considering the Government’s target for achieving Level 2 BIM by 2016, you will receive the latest update about the Government strategy and efforts the industry make to meet this target. Our expert panel of speakers will review the implementation guidance and forthcoming revision of BS 1192:2007 and discuss the newly revised PAS 1192-2:2015 - Specification for information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects using building information modelling. There will be also the opportunity to hear about new BIM initiatives, projects and case studies that have been developed in 2015.

  • Hear the latest Government update on BIM strategy
