Following the ground-breaking news of the CITA BIM Group‘s introduction into the United Kingdom‘s official Regional BIM Hubs managed by the BIM Task Group, the Construction IT Alliance have had more buzz surrounding them following promotion in a top Irish publication.
Irish Building Magazine have looked towards November and previewed what can be expected from CITA’s biggest BIM event of the year, the CITA BIM Gathering 2015. According to CITA’s Dr. Alan Hore, the keynote event will feature a trifecta of functions, including portraying Ireland’s skills as well as allowing Irish professionals to share their expertise with worldwide delegates, with the latter also presenting their findings and stories relating to Building Information Modelling.
“It’s an international conference with international delegates and guest speakers,” stated Hore. “It’s primary function is to showcase Ireland as a place to do BIM business, where we have the expertise to construct modern buildings with cutting edge technology – examples of this would include the Kerry Food’s world class R+D facility in Naas and the new planned Children’s Hospital at St James’s in Dublin.
“Secondly, the role of the conference is to underline the importance of BIM and its application in the transformation of the Irish construction industry into a more efficient and cost-effective industry. Thirdly, the conference allows us to share and confer with the global BIM community about developments around the world and on new innovations in the way BIM is being used – there will be quite a number of international papers presented.”
Taking place on November 12th and 13th at Gibson Hotel in the Point Village, Dublin, international speakers already confirmed for the CITA BIM Gathering include the duo that won the BIMMY Award at BIM Show Live 2015 for Best BIM Presentation, Arto Kiviniemi and Léon van Berlo.
