What to expect during the event
With BIM processes being used on projects over the last two decades why aren’t we seeing significant improvements in the speed and accuracy in how we deliver projects? Why hasn’t the introduction of the ISO 19650 series of standards moved us forward? In this presentation Nathan will look at some of the fundamental problems we are facing in industry and share concepts that could be adopted to optimise the process of delivering projects. He will introduce BS EN 17412-1:2020 – ‘Building Information Modelling, Level of Information Need, Part 1: Concepts and Principles’ which take us all back to the fundamentals of ‘Why’ we are doing all this work in the first place. • Hear about the current problems we are creating with deliverables and learn how we can improve our deliverable requirements. • Learn how you can improve your collaboration processes. • Learn about BS EN 17412-1:2020 and how you can apply it across your business and projects.
