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 & Construction ICT; Programme Director MSc. BIM & Digital Built Environments; Director Construct IT For Business, Salford University, 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
BIM: What’s your burning bridge?
We’re over a year into the mandated BIM Level 2 and the conversation is finally changing from mandates towards appreciating the bigger picture and how it can be achieved. Graeme will discuss this change and how we can set ourselves on the path to realising even better outcomes. Whatever your approach, digital empowers businesses to be more accurate and more efficient, and can facilitate the removal of waste, be that physical or process. But the opportunity of what you can realise is about you, your approach, your leadership and the commercial framework you work under – what’s motivating the change in you?
Jill Guthrie, Senior BIM Manager for Willmott Dixon Construction
BIM Implementation in the North West: A contractor’s perspective
Jill will discuss the reality of implementing BIM into a large construction organisation and will discuss in detail issues raised on live projects and lessons learnt looking at the supply chain, procurement and client’s knowledge and understanding of BIM.
