With over 19 years of experience in the AEC industry, I've established myself as an expert with a proven track record of delivering successful results for a wide range of clients In 2018, I became passionate about interoperability and have been actively promoting it ever since.

 What to expect during the event

The speech on IFC files focused on the importance of these files in the construction industry. IFC files are a file format that is used to exchange data between various Building Information Modelling (BIM) software applications. The interoperability of IFC files is critical to ensure that all parties involved in a construction project can work together efficiently, minimize errors, and optimize the construction process. IFC files are flexible and can include a vast array of data, from 3D models to material specifications, schedules, and more. They also support federated models that allow different sources to be integrated into a single model, identify conflicts or inconsistencies early in the construction process, and reduce errors and delays. Additionally, IFC files are compatible with different languages and measurement systems, making it easier for construction professionals from different regions or countries to collaborate. The three key learning points from this speech are: 1. IFC files are an open standard, allowing construction professionals to choose the best software for their needs and still exchange information with others who may be using different software. 2. The flexibility and vast data that IFC files can include allow for better-informed decisions and a smoother construction process. 3. The ability of IFC files to support federated models and be compatible with different languages and measurement systems make them a critical component of the construction industry in facilitating collaboration, reducing errors, and enabling better-informed decisions. In conclusion, IFC files are a vital tool for the construction industry that will continue to evolve and play an increasingly critical role in ensuring that construction projects are completed efficiently and effectively.
