Event Preview: BIM; For and Against

Do you think #BIMistheBOMB or has #BIMBOMBED?

If you have no idea what those hashtags are talking about, then perhaps you should follow BIM4SME’s BIM; For and Against – The Debate event.


Taking place tomorrow (May 7th) in Sovereign Street, Leeds, the ‘informed debate’ is looking to see whether the majority of those within the architecture circle believe that BIM is the future, or a major flop? A technological advancement or a prime example of ‘If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it’?


The debate is inspired by Tony Bingham’s controversial article Has BIM Bombed? published late last year and is looking to find out whether the majority or minority agree with Bingham’s comments surrounding the practice.


On the day, two teams of three industry experts will argue ‘For’ and ‘Against’. Each team will have 10 minutes to present their arguments before they have an additional 10 to cross-examine their opponents’ findings. The event will also feature a Q&A and a definition of Level 3 BIM from David Philps, Head of BIM at Mace Group.


Tickets for the event are now sold out, yet you can keep up with the debate on Twitter, using the hashtags #BIMistheBOMB and #BIMBOMBED.


BIM4SME’s BIM; For and Against – The Debate takes places between 4pm and 7pm tomorrow (May 7th). Click here for more information.
