Johannesburg | BIM4 Professionals & BIM Conference | 14 – 15 March 2018

Building on the well-attended annual BIM conferences, in particular 2016 year’s conference on BIM was a huge success. 2018 BIM conference will showcase the challenges with BIM in Africa chaired by Vaughan Harris,m executive Director to the BIM Institute. Our various international and local speakers will present examples of using BIM on various delivery methods and life cycle phases from project idea to facility management.

Some of the topics and areas that will be covered in 2018 include:

  • What BIM standards are in current development for Africa and who South Africa is aligning its standards with?
  • How BIM standards and classification systems will disrupt South African Professionals.
  • Affordable Applications for BIM Modelling in a design and construction environment
  • Aligning BIM design efforts through all the project development phases
  • Pitfalls of integrating 3D with 4D planning and model simulation
  • Benefits of BIM for on-site efficiencies and construction methods for contractors.
  • Innovating on Projects: The latest on 3D Laser scanning in the field.
  • Improving facilities management through BIM processes

The course will allow delegates from different backgrounds and skill levels to experience BIM implementation standards and processes in a supervised collaborative work role environment. The BIM4 Professionals course is co-located with the event offering a hands on workshop on day two. We align our methodology with our software vendor partners but focus on the process required to deliver a BIM project.

It was a privilege to represent Accenture at the recent BIM4 Professionals course in Johannesburg. There was good representation across the built environment ecosystem of role players in the session which made discussions and debates very interesting and very pertinent to the issues being faced today in the infrastructure delivery space. What is clear is that all representatives agree that BIM holds great value for the industry and for clients who are innovative and forward thinking enough to “insist” that the BIM methodology is followed.

As an architect, attending the course has made me realise that what we see when looking at beautiful images produced by architectural software is one side of the coin. The other side of the coin is the data that makes the image. Through BIM processes we can see that the image and the data are one – the image represents the data in a visual manner that we recognise and understand as a building.
