NewsFree Audio Webinar Recording Real life applications of BIM
In the first in a series of webinars presented by BIM+ and Construction Manager, we focused on how to achieve Level 2 on the ground.
More than 200 members of the global BIM community from countries as diverse as the US, Kenya, South Africa and Dubai listened to the webinar live – and it is now available to listen to for free here.
This webinar, presented in association with Bluebeam, looks beyond the theoretical aspects of BIM Level 2 that have been well documented by the BIM Task Force and others. It focuses on actually getting teams to adopt BIM within their every day working practices both in the office and on site.
Speakers Louise Dawes, group BIM integration manager at Kier; David Philp, global BIM/MIC consultancy director at Aecom; and Sasha Reed, VP strategic development at Bluebeam, each present their views on how BIM can be driven into businesses, followed by a Q&A.
Format: Audio content with PowerPoint presentation. Duration: One hour.READ MORE

There are individuals who have set up new companies, training providers who have added new services, design consultants or contractors trying to charge more for BIM and conference organisers filling their space.
