BIM Question Time
The first event of its kind took place in September 2016 with BIM Question Time being chaired by David Philp and panellists from Arup, TfL, BPR Architects, Weston & Williamson, Robin Partington Architects and  Fosters & Partners. We received some excellent feedback as follows:

“Best industry BIM event that I’ve been to!”
“First event where Common Data Environments have been discussed in detail – excellent!”
“Great to hear from a different set of speakers & not
the usual ones you see at other BIM events”
“The cumulative depth of knowledge/experience of the panel regarding
BIM resulted in a very enjoyable event.”

Although the panel used different software solutions and catered to different types of clients in general they agreed on similar principles, with the emphasis placed on the importance of British Standards.  Below we have summarised their key advice.

Arup: The eight pillars of BIM Level 2 is the foundation for achieving success in construction industry. These set of eight pillars refers to set of standard documents that relate to the British standards. The key to understand these documents and implementing them correctly is in understanding the finer details. British Standards will become the international standard for BIM.

TfL: We as clients are clear on what we want from BIM projects and ensure that everyone involved in our projects are aware of meeting those requirements. We conduct a PQQ (Pre-qualification questionnaire) as an example to enable us to best identify if contractor/supplier meet and demonstrate the required standard to deliver what we need.  We are then clear what support they may need.

BPR Architects: Being a small/medium sized architectural practice we found it easier to make the most of the recession and implement the cultural change needed to adopt BIM. It is important that the decision to implement BIM within a practice is decided and supported from the top down for its transition to be achievable.

Weston & Williamson: The “I” in BIM is the most important part of the acronym. The LOD of the geometric model should not let us forget the most important reason for adopting BIM, the information that it will include.

Robin Partington Architects: The architect’s role changed with the transformation from hand drafting to 2D CAD and now we are seeing these changes progress especially for the architectural designer’s as their roles will no longer be seen as mere draughtsmen.

Foster + Partners: Current technology does not allow us to create a detailed model within one file. Therefore it is important to break up your model in manageable sizes to avoid your model becoming too large for you to work on and eventually have your project grinding to halt.

Next Time: We have had such great feedback from the audience and panellists about the success of the format that we intend to run another event of this type in 2016.  Watch this space for more information.
