BIM for Manufacturers Seminar


Help with the Journey – 28th July 2015, The Building Centre, London

It is now only a few months until all public sector projects will require the supply chain to use BIM Level 2 and there are lots of examples where developers and clients have adopted BIM on their projects too. Many manufacturers have started to offer BIM data but there are still many companies who have to decide.

This one day seminar is designed for the manufacturer, both those with BIM and those considering its adoption. Suitable for both the technical and marketing person, it will provide an impartial perspective on progress with BIM implementation and then split the group into those with BIM and those considering it, to address specific issues relevant to you.

Joint Chair: Peter Caplehorn and Steve Thompson
