BIM: The small practice perspective
In association with Graphisoft and Autodesk, the RIBA are putting on three one-day conferences looking at BIM from the point of view of architectural practices that employ 10 architects or fewer.
The sorts of questions that will be being addressed include:
- What is BIM?
- How will it affect me?
- I am a sole practitioner/small practice, do I need to bother?
- How and how much do I need to change my way of thinking?
- How do I implement BIM?
- How long will it take?
- How much will it cost?
- How does it affect PI/Copyright/Contractual agreements?
- Will my hardware be sufficient?
NBS Director of Design and Innovation Dr Stephen Hamil will be chairing the London session on 20 September at 66 Portland Place. There will also be additional sessions in Manchester on 26 September and Birmingham on 4 October.
Speakers will be from architectural practice, software vendors, information providers and BIM consultants. These will include Richard Fairhead, bblur architecture, James Austin, Autodesk, David Jellings, Open BIM Network, Rebecca De Cicco, David Miller Architects, James Anwyl, Eurobuild, Stefan Mordue, NBS, Rob Kalocay, Graphisoft UK, Scott Berry, Graphisoft Connect and representatives of BIM Academy.
A similar session was put on as part of the Guerrilla Tactics event last year and it was very well received.
