BIM and the QS – What’s the problem?

This week alinea associates Richard Bates and Richard Powell will be speaking at BIM Show Live in Newcastle.

BIM Show Live brings digital construction content to life. It is more than just a conference, it is an experience.

Over the course of two intensive (but fun) days, we’ll gather for a series of keynotes, panel, and interactive seminar sessions from BIM and digital construction experts from across the globe. Addressing everything new in the world of digital construction and advanced technologies; from artificial intelligence to predictive data.

Richard and Richard will be presenting a session entitled ‘BIM and the QS – What’s the problem?’. They will explain how alinea have successfully figured out making BIM work for us and the journey we have been through to enhance our cost management delivery on complex projects, from early cost modelling through to contractor procurement. They will outline some of the issues we have encountered over our many 3D delivered projects and the value our methods and involvement can create for the project. However, BIM is certainly not a one click exercise for quantity surveyors!

This seminar will explore our thoughts behind the slow uptake by quantity surveyors within the industry.

BIM Show Live is a driving force for the implementation of BIM processes.
