“Ready for BIM or hoping to get by...?“ seminar at Edgbaston Stadium offers contractors free help with tough questions
UK construction software solution provider Sitedesk is hosting a free BIM seminar for contactors based in and around the West Midlands. The morning seminar will take place at Edgbaston Stadium on Tuesday, 5 April, which marks the first day of a new digital era in UK construction.
Contractors who work with public sector building clients, either as main or as sub-contractor, will face new challenges during 2016 and beyond. The official government deadline for implementing BIM Level 2 protocols is 4th April. It will mean that all contractors and suppliers will face new Supplier Assessment questions and need to prove their capability to deliver BIM projects – or lose out on contracts. The relevance of BIM is broader still, since it is accepted that the business benefits of BIM mean that its processes and standards are likely to expand rapidly from centrally-funded government projects, into local government and into the private sector.
At the Sitedesk BIM seminar, BIM expert David Emery of Virtechs Limited will speak about his extensive real-world experience of implementing BIM projects. He will join Sitedesk’s chairman, Michael McCullen, who will speak from long experience in the construction sector about the vital questions that contractors must understand and prepare to answer. Rob Umphray, director of BIM at Sitedesk, will also demonstrate how Sitedesk can help to make the process of delivering BIM projects easier and more manageable.
