Events on 20 Sep 2012
A joint event with CIAT South East.
This is a follow on event to the Aston University - 10 Year Plan event on 12th September and is a site visit around the EBRI and Doug Ellis Woodcock Street Phase II development.
Fragmented and inaccurate project information leads to delivery problems in the construction industry. Securing information flow and data accuracy results in lower costs, reduced waste and projects being delivered on time. The term Building Information Modelling was first coined by Charles Eastman of Georgia Tech, who described BIM as "the process of generating and managing building data during its life cycle." The BIM process enables open collaboration through the seamless transfer of consistent digital information, rather than the traditional 2D process which is cumbersome, inefficient and open to misinterpretation. In addition, collaborative working provides engineers with the opportunity to engage sub-contractors early in the design process, facilitating design for manufacture and offsite construction amongst other benefits.
The BIM movement is gaining momentum fast and it is important that Industry professionals are kept up to date with the latest technologies and workflows. This presentation aims to give a broad overview of BIM, its benefits, and what is/will be possible for projects incorporating a BIM workflow.
The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) supports a wide range of events that explore important issues and are of value to members of the construction industry. It selects those that it feels will inform, challenge, promote knowledge sharing and aid continuing professional development (CPD).
Tony Bingham is a Construction Barrister, Arbitrator, Adjudicator, Mediator and columinist for the 'Building' magazine. He also lectures on construction litigation and arbitration and is visiting lcturer at Reading University, College of Estate Management for the Diploma in Arbitration. He is also an assessor for the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. Tony's presentation will focus on parties that feel they may have had a raw deal from the adjudication process - do adjudicators often buckle and opt for a middle-of-the-road decision? What are the prospects for challenging a decision? we hope to find out the answers to these questions and more on Thursday 20 September 2012 at the Digital World Centre, Salford Quays.
