Law firm Pinsent Masons last night held a Building Information Modelling conference that was hotly-discussed on social media.

The Pinsent Masons BIM Conference 2015 saw opinions from lawyers detailing their expertise relating to BIM mixed with the views of associate directors, researchers, directors of BIM and more who discussed everything from BIM & smart cities to contractual framework.

Speakers at the event included Balfour Beatty‘s Peter Trebilcock, EC HarrisSimon Rawlinson, UBSJason Clark and Pinsent Mason’s Sheena Bryson to name a few.

After individual presentations and ‘The Big BIM Debate‘, Pinsent Masons’ Chris Hallam revealed the findings that came from the company’s BIM Survey 2015. Interesting statistics – both positive and negative – were calculated, including that only 28.7% of respondents believing that the UK industry will meet Level 2 BIM compliance by 2016. Another worrying result found that nearly half of those surveyed had never heard of Digital Built Britain, and more thought that the government’s “strategic plan” was average rather than good.

Check out a feed of social media highlights relating to the event, including tweets from Just Practising Social Strategist Su Butcher, BIM Academy‘s Technical Director Mark Stodgell and BIM Manager at Turner & Townsend, Etienne Le Roux.
