A variety of speakers – covering architectural practitioners, advisers, designers, academics, contractors (in UK and USA) and engineers, etc – answer a range of questions on BIM to explain the practical benefits of BIM and the future realities. This is a really useful intervention for those yet to take up on BIM as it points out the cost benefits and time-saving in clear details. For those interested in developing their extant use of BIM it explores the future technological potential.

Learning points:

  • An explanation of BIM
  • The commercial merits of BIM; its time-saving and collaborative benefits
  • Whether BIM software development is stable or is still in the developmental stage
  • How appropriate BIM is for retrofit
  • The future for BIM
  • Concerns about security of information flows
