FULL DAY SEMINAR ON BIM
Sunday 15 October
Major plant owners, leading consultants and contractors in the hydro/dam profession, together with IFIs and software specialists, will take part in a seminar on the increasingly important topic of Building Information Modelling (BIM).
The aim is to address the challenges faced in implementing BIM on large projects, particularly in the context of hydropower. The seminar will encourage knowledge-sharing among industry
professionals, to overcome barriers such as variations in skillsets and misalignment of ambitions across the supply chain, and ultimately to maximize the benefits BIM can bring to projects.
The seminar discussions will focus on key industry topics, including digital co-ordination, interface management, digital ground risk management, and effective change management. Through presentations, panel discussions and interactive tools, the goal is to enhance understanding, encourage dialogue, and drive positive change and advances in the field of BIM, in relation to hydro.
Four sessions are planned, covering:
Session 1: Setting the scene
• Introductory talks for those who are not experts in the subject, starting with some basics of the technology and its scope.
• Discussions on the potential and future role of BIM, highlighting specific advantages and project benefits for our profession.
