The two-day event, which commences on April 8th, 2015, will be stacked with Building Information Modelling content, and this year’s conference set to be the biggest yet as the Government’s 2016 mandate looms closer.
Kicking off proceedings on Day One will be Head of BIM Implementation at the UK BIM Task Group, Professor David Philp. His speech will be followed by a talk from BIM Show Live organiser and Space Group CEO, Rob Charlton, who will address the ‘State of the Nation’.
Following the introductory words, Philp will chair a Panel Discussion looking BIM Return on Investment (ROI). We are to be kept on tenterhooks a little longer regarding the panellists as they are yet to be confirmed.
After morning networking and refreshments, the plethora of presentations will begin at 12 noon in the venue, Manchester Central, which was selected for a second time. BIM4SME, David Miller Architects, thinkBIM and the University of Salford will be represented in a joint Define and Validate speech that will kick off the series of symposiums.
Elsewhere on Day One, sessions will be presented by the likes of Autodesk‘s Lee Mullin (read his Best BIM Bad BIM and BIM Brunch entries), BIM.Technologies‘ Adam Ward (Adam’s Crunch Time interview), Cubicle Centre‘s Craig Sewell, HOCHTIEF ViCon‘s Rene Schumann, NBS‘ Dr. Stephen Hamil and TNO‘s Léon van Berlo.
On Day Two, taking to the rostrum will be: BIM.Technologies’ Olly Thomas (listen here for Olly’s Crunch Time); Colour Urban Design’s Henry-Fenby Taylor (author of the hotly-anticipated ‘BIM for Landscape‘ publication); DSG Quantity Surveyors‘ Bernadette Lord (DSG’s Company Spotlight) and Ibsecad‘s Richard Baglow plus many more.
The second and final day of proceedings will conclude with EC Harris‘ Simon Rawlinson chairing a second panel discussion, this time on BIM for Manufacturers, which is set to very much encapsulate the essence of BIM Show Live’s sister event, BIM Show Live for Manufacturers.
