What to expect during the event
BIM coordination doesn't exist. So many projects treat BIM coordination as a separate, add-on task. In reality, coordination is an essential part of delivering a well-designed and successful project, and coordination "using BIM" is simply another method as an alternative to traditional coordination methods. Instead of approaching BIM coordination as an additional cost, only necessary of the client has appointed you to carry out this role, think of it as a foundation of effective collaboration. Nigel Davies, Director with internationally renowned firm, Evolve Consultancy, and expert in information management and exchange, will lead you through the practical considerations for successful coordination. From understanding where BIM coordination fits within the ISO 19650 information management workflows, to understanding the detail of exactly what needs to be coordinated, checked and approved, this session will give examples from real projects and may open your eyes to things you’d not considered before. • You will gain an insight into how to prepare for model coordination, including clash checking & resolution and delivering asset requirements (including the dreaded “COBie”) • You will understand how to collaborate effectively and work as a team to resolve challenges • You will be better prepared for the next project
