Watch on demand: BIM and the infrastructure challenge webinar
Get a step by step guide to the use of BIM in infrastructure by watching NCE’s latest BIM webinar, brought to you in association with Excitech.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is increasingly mandated for construction projects but most focus has been on BIM for Buildings. Many of the same advantages of BIM are applicable in design, construction and management of infrastructure projects but some of the challenges in realising these are very different.
Indeed, a poll carried out during the live broadcast earlier this week revealed that almost two thirds of those watching were yet to embrace BIM.
Excitech principal consultant Dave Bosworth and Excitech director Leigh Atkinson set out to explain how BIM techniques can be adopted in simple steps.
This web seminar introduced, as a reminder, the potential benefts of BIM for infrastructure. Some of the challenges for BIM in infrastructure were then discussed along with some of the potential solutions.
Real-life examples from the water industry and highways sector showed what can be achieved.
If you are involved in the design and construction of infrastructure projects as an engineer or manager, or you work in the commissioning and management of infrastructure assets, then this web seminar should provide invaluable pointers to gaining real benefits from BIM in Infrastructure.
The one hour webinar took place this week. But you can watch it again now or when it suits you.
- The potential benefits of BIM for infrastructure.
- Consider some of the challenges for BIM in infrastructure
- Discuss the potential solutions, processes, workflows and software from design, through construction and into asset management.
Projects will be referenced where some of these solutions have been adopted as examples.
