BIM and its Impact on the Property Business
Session synopsisBIM (Building Information Management), the swear word on many projects. There is currently an almost archaic relationship between owner / operators and their professional teams. We have amazing advancements in both sets of sectors but no thread to combine these to mutually beneficial goal/s. If the “I” (Information) in BIM is so important, how can owner / operators link it back to their existing / future businesses and reap some of the rewards that this process offers not only on new builds, but also on refurbishments and maintenance.
Why should people attend?To gain an understanding how we could start getting better alignment between these sectors. We will be looking at questions like:
- How do we link the respective Information Requirements in our business to Building Information Modelling?
- Why would you want to link this back to Business Outcomes?
