What is Building Information Modelling (BIM)?

SMART Global partners with BIM expert Ralph Montague, to explore definitions of the process that sees construction industry professionals collaborate on a range of data that comes together through the use of Building Information Model. We will explore a range of essential BIM tools and resources.

Through BIM, the UK construction industry is undergoing its very own digital revolution. BIM is a way of working. BIM is information modelling and information management in a team environment, all team members should be working to the same standards as one another. BIM creates value from the combined efforts of people, process and technology.

This half day workshop led by Ralph Montague, will explore the role of BIM in Northern Irelands Construction sector, the content pillars to be explored are:

  • Leadership
  • Standards
  • Education
  • Procurement

We will explore the 5 “Ingredients” for Change:

  • Vision
  • Incentives
  • Skills
  • Resources
  • Action Plan (SMART)

The Workshop will address:

  • BIM – essential tools and resources
  • What “vision” does the NI Construction industry have for itself for a digital future?
  • What is the risk/impact of doing nothing (business as usual)?
  • What are the “blockers” to progress?
  • What “incentives” are available, or could be made available, to drive change?
  • Addressing the Skills gap has to be addressed at all levels
  • What “resources” are available, or could be made available?

Delegates will come away from the workshop with a Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant & Time-based Action plan that collectively could drive digital transition to benefit their business with the use of BIM.
