RICS is delighted to announce that David Philp, Head of BIM Implementation,
Cabinet Office will be speaking at RICS BIM National Conference 2013. David will be addressing the Government’s Construction Strategy 2016 BIM objective, which will provide an overview of the story so far, the future outlook of BIM and explain what Government Soft Landings are.

This conference will address the need for collaborative working in developing BIM across the supply chain; from pre-construction, construction and post-construction phases. As a core theme, this conference will address the need to put in place educational systems in support of the development of individuals able to meet the aim of the use of Level 3 – fully interoperable BIM

Join fellow practitioners, built environment professionals, lawyers and academics to share and enhance your knowledge and understanding of BIM process in practice.

The Government Construction Strategy outlines the requirement for fully collaborative 3D BIM by 2016. The conference will address the need for collaborative working in developing BIM across the supply chain, through the pre-construction, construction and post-construction phases.

Although the leading industries are currently considered able to deliver BIM – at least at level 1 and up to level 2 – there is nevertheless an urgent need to further encourage the wider industry.

This eminent event will give you the story so far and look at the UK’s rate of adoption in meeting the government’s 2016 objective.

Delegates will be able to:

- assess the role of technology and intelligent use of information which BIM encourages
- address challenges and opportunities in terms of performance improvement, greater project ‘certainty’ and reduced risks.

A core theme will be the pressing need to put in place educational systems that enable people to achieve level 3 – fully interoperable BIM.

We will also evaluate the emerging need for adequately trained individuals capable of implementing BIM technology in the workplace.

Delegates will establish how the facilities management sector can benefit from BIM processes – by effectively tracking and managing facility information using BIM capabilities utilised throughout a project’s life-cycle.
