 What to expect during the event

Devan will be presenting the challenges on a conventional refurbishment project in the heard of a constrained, central London site and subsequently how a combination of smart model collaboration and coordination; �Collab-oordination� ensured the process was logical, sequenced correctly and the geometric and alphanumeric data were both inputted appropriately, but also was of use to the teams.
BIMcollab�s automated clash management with its Smart Issues feature and analysing models with its Smart Views, is helping McBains save time and money by creating rulesets for clashes between disciplines that can simply be updated fortnightly at the click of a button.
The key issue was collaboration and true, live communication � BIMcollab has allowed McBains to manage this workflow seamlessly.
Overall, it has ensured that project team members communicate clearly and openly about their projects, regardless of what stage they are in and how inconsistent they believe their modelling quality is.
The over-arching vision for the project is a fully functional digital twin of the asset to manage various daily activities, repairs, and maintenance and even a potential link to an IoT solution.
