The speaker line-up has been announced for the third British Information Modelling event, including high profile representatives of IBM, Innovate UK and HOK.
Bringing together innovators and experts from across the Building Information Modelling (BIM) sector, the latest seminar – hosted by international architectural practice KPF at their London headquarters – will take place on the 11th May 2017.
Simon Hart, Senior Innovation Lead for Smart Infrastructure and Management Officer of the BIM Task Group at Innovate UK, will provide an update on BIM Level 3 strategy. Described as 'the game changer', BIM Level 3 puts whole life processes and open standards as the primary objectives. Greg Schluesner AIA, Principal and Director of Design Technology Innovation at HOK, the largest US based architecture-engineering firm, and Martin Coyne, BIM Manager and Associate Principal at international architecture practice KPF, will present different perspectives on the cutting face of BIM. They will draw on real world projects to explore some of the challenges and opportunities facing the sector.
David Platt, an associate partner in IBM's Global Centre of Competence for Engineering, Construction & Operations (EC&O), will explore the role of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine Learning within the construction industry, while Heba Bevan, the brains behind the smart sensor revolution Utterberry, will demonstrate how sensors, combined with artificial intelligence, can be used to provide real time feedback for construction projects.
Steve Brown, European Client Lead at Emmy Award winning production studio Unit 9, will present some of the latest innovations in Virtual and Augmented Reality, and Andrew Norrie, Commercial Director at 3D Repo, the company behind multi-award winning technology that allows complex BIM datasets from multiple sources to be stored and easily accessed anywhere via the web and organisers of the event, will present the latest developments for knowledge base driven collaboration and analysis.
"It is a real honour to welcome some of the best known names from the sector to the third British Information Modelling event," commented 3D Repo's CEO Dr Jozef Dobos. "The combination of thought leaders, policy influencers, innovators and frontline practitioners makes this seminar unmissable for anyone involved in construction and infrastructure or with an interest in BIM."
British Information Modelling takes place from 18h30 to 21h00 on 11th May 2017 at KPF's headquarters, Langley Street, London.
