In April 2016, the UK government launched its mandate requiring collaborative BIM Level 2 to be used on all construction projects procured by central government departments. The mandate is seen as a catalyst for change in the construction industry, but how well are companies embedding BIM Level 2 in projects and what needs to happen to improve implementation that takes BIM to the next level?
BIM Prospects 2017, which will take place on 20-21 April in London, United Kingdom, will assess where the construction industry is one year on from the launch of the BIM Level 2 mandate and will explore the development of BIM for product manufacturers.
BIM Prospects and Digitally Built
Now in its third year, the two-day conference, will be run in conjunction with the Institute of Engineering and Technology’s (IET) Digitally Built conference, which will focus on the other vital components of digital construction; the synergies producing a complete overall picture of digitising the construction sector.
Both conferences will be held at the IET’s Savoy Place in central London. Pay just one registration fee and you can gain access to both conference programmes and benefit from seeing all the content via IET.tv post-event.
Day 1: One year on from the BIM Level 2 mandate
The day will assess where the construction industry is one year on from the launch of the BIM Level 2 mandate, providing the latest updates on PAS standards, sharing best practice approaches and examining issues around skills and interoperability.
Day 2: BIM for product manufacturers
The day will explore the development of BIM for product manufacturers, including insights into BIM objects, open data, and the development of standards for product data templates. It will also provide a detailed introduction to the Construction Products Association’s LEXiCON tool developed to support data consistency and the relationship between the Internet of Things and BIM.
