Richard Bates at BIM4SME, Westminster University

This Wednesday, alinea Associate and BIM Specialist, Richard Bates will be speaking at a BIM4SME event at Westminster University. The topic of the event is ‘What Good Data Looks Like’ and Richard will be talking on ‘The Practicioner’s Perspective’.

Information Management:The Fundamentals for Implementing BIM

BIM is happening whether you like it or not. The Regional BIM Hubs are here to support anyone who wants to understand what BIM means and the implications this will have on the entire industry.

The London and SE Regional Hub in association with the University of Westminster have designed a series of events develop a learner’s capability to adopt and implement BIM within their organisation and projects.

Data is to BIM what fuel is to car. You can have effective processes and procedures, what poor data in will mean poor data out. Poor data management is a hidden cost that can lead to significant wasted effort.

This is the fifth out of seven events on the implementation of BIM and focuses on the basics of good data management.

There will be five speakers attending the event, including Richard Bates. Each speaker has their own perspective and will consider the following:

  • Andy Hamer  Basics of good data management
  • Nick Nisbet – Why COBie is important
  • Alec Newing – Using current data for BIM
  • Nick Tune – Built verified data
  • Richard Bates – The Practioner’s Perspective
