BIM Conference 2017: Unlocking the potential of BIM
“Sustained leadership from central Government is crucial to maintain industry commitment to invest in BIM capability.” – Government Construction Strategy 2016-20
The use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) on UK Government funded projects has already resulted in £3 billion in cost savings. According to the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, while the construction industry is often criticised for delivering projects “late and over budget”, BIM offers “predictability”, “effectiveness” and “efficiency”. The Government has been quick to acknowledge the environmental and economic benefits of BIM. Since 2016, all construction firms bidding for central Government contracts have been required to have Level 2 BIM status. With focus now shifting to Level 3 BIM, there has never been a more exciting time for the digital construction sector.
Join us for the BIM Conference 2017 where leading experts will discuss recent developments and provide valuable insights into the future of BIM. Understand the benefits of widespread use of BIM in the construction industry, assess the impact of Level 2 BIM, learn how future Government initiatives will promote further BIM uptake, explore the very latest BIM technology and analyse examples of best practice.

Opening Remarks and Session from Chair
Jason Underwood, Professor in the Digital Built Environment, Salford University
‘’My main research interests are currently in the areas of construction ICT, concurrent engineering, integrated and collaborative construction, product modelling, Building Information Modelling (BIM), object modelling, integrated project databases, web-based technologies, BIM & Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) integration, knowledge-infused virtual teams and organisational e-readiness towards delivering strategic advantage from ICT investment. In relation to BIM, my interest is focused towards BIM implementation and deployment together with education and training in the development of BIM capabilities, in particular bringing together the concept of organisational e-readiness with BIM, i.e. organisational BIM readiness’’
Graeme Forbes, CEO, Clearbox BIM
Graeme is a Chartered Civil Engineer by background and has been involved in the design and build of a wide variety of projects, both in the UK and overseas. Since 1999, he has been involved in running fully integrated design and builds business units in major contractors across many different sectors. His exposure to the whole life delivery process and desire for the better use of technology led the development of BIM-based tools from 2004. This led on to the creation of Clearbox and its solutions, to realise the vision for the application of technology to overcome the issues he recalls vividly from his experience, from the early days as a site engineer to more recent roles running design and build businesses.
