About BIM Conference

5th Annual Conference

About Our Conference

The last 12 months have brought many advancements in the breadth and depth of BIM use. Tougher market conditions and client requirements and more and more powerful communication, mobile, cloud, collaboration, 3D positioning, and other technologies underscore the importance of well-structured information to design, build, and manage successful construction projects. BIM is the best technology available today to structure project information well and make it useful for people and a wide range of computing systems. 

Building on the well-attended first four conferences, in particular last year’s conference on BIM and Lean, this year’s conference will showcase successful applications of BIM by many disciplines in all the lifecycle phases. As in previous years, the speakers will speak from personal experience in applying BIM beneficially and quantify the costs and benefits of BIM use as much as possible. They will present examples of using BIM on a wide range of types of projects and in support of many roles, disciplines, and life cycle phases from project idea to facility management.

 The value added by the construction industry is defined by designing, building, and then operating the right building, plant, or infrastructure system efficiently. This puts the building (or product) squarely in the center of attention for all parties involved in a construction project. BIM is the best technology available on the market to represent and share the information about the product and therefore support the value-adding activities of all members of a project team. Maintaining and communicating a common information basis, or single source of truth, has always been a challenge given changing market conditions that shape the structure to be built as well as how it is designed, built, and operated. 

Since the combination of the technologies listed above combined with BIM has great potential for addressing these challenges, we selected the theme of the 5th BIM Conference as “BIM anywhere all the time for everyone”. We hope you will join us for this insightful and strategic event!

All delegates completing both the conference and workshop will be given a “Certificate of Attendance” endorsed by Stanford CIFE. Attendees registering only for the exclusive course will also be given a “Certificate of Attendance”. Presentations, photos and conference videos will be available to download from the website shortly after the conference ends. Attendees will be emailed once all materials are ready for download. This year as well, delegates will be provided with a “Special Gift”!
