Broad cross section of the industry represented
Spread of groups
BIM alone is not enough.
No more excuses.
The process of design is not really changing. Just a new tool set to design better.
Myriad ways of using analysis.
BIM education is happening in Ireland. That’s a great initiative. Industry and colleges need to communicate.
Don’t assume the model is correct. Always check and validate. What do people need. Do we ever ask?
Cobie bun fight. It’s here so work with it until something better comes along.
NBS going in the right direction.
Dr Stephen Hamil
UK Government and BIM
Exporting our professional services overseas.
It all means change.
(Live demo of NBS create)
Showing exactly what I mean about doing away with dumb documents and creating computable data. http://www.stephenwolfram.com/publications/recent/datasummit2010/
BIM task group labs http://www.bimtaskgroup.org/task-group-labs-portal/
The future is digital.
20% cost savings but organisations must change
There is an opportunity for world leadership.
We are starting to ask the right questions. Starting to ask how.
Fit for purpose is relative and scares lawyers/insurers
How do we deliver BIM data. Cobie strips intelligence out. It will do for now but not the future.
How do we pass the data between applications.
Construction companies are unlikely to be able to make the required investments that Boeing did.
It takes nerve to see this through. We just have to stick with it.
You need to be very specific about what you want and when. AEC UK about to post some guidance on this topic. Geometry vs meta data.
Efficiency and re-risking.
Single collation of information. But with higher quality. Fit for purpose.
Our industry needs to come up with the goods to assist the client.
Distributed cognition. Taking things learnt in educations out into industry. How do we gather this knowledge and the share it.
Involving the “dirty boot” wearers.
Ireland has the chance to take everything done before, use it and leap ahead of everyone else. Industry doing it for themselves and then demonstrating to government that this is what we want to do.
Dr Alan V Hore founding director construction IT alliance.
Constuction infomatics. Blended learning.
Honours degree level – Bologna Accord
Collaboration is limited to periods of attendance. Developing virtual collaboration.
Gaps in architecture, civild and engineers.
Students are seeing what is emerging and a momentum is building.
Complete tools – all required functions
Helpful tools – perform some
External tools. – export and import
Design is a process.
MEP are interested in the spaces and voids between things.
Agencies, sizes and scales.
City scale analytics.
Programme analytics to look at peaks and troughs of expenditure.
Take the geometry away and expose the data allows you to look at the project in a completely new way.
Landscapes have an as built condition and a matured condition as they grow, unlike buildings.
Drawing it once with no doubling up.
Open source analysis tools. George Mokhtar
Planning = construction sequencing
Qs’s no longer measure but they extract data from objects. Round tripping data across applications can sometimes lose the data they use to measure. How does it get validated. Validation comes via people still and from the original package/source. Rigorous checking still required.
Costing analysis must be part of the execution plan. How challenges and solutions are approached. Look at how items are exported and compare to how they will be measured. List of items that the cost consultants need to make up for.
The process as well as the data needs to validated.
If you are not doing any sort of analysis using your models then you are missing out.
Homecamp using sensors to track building performance.
How is the analysis handed on to the execution team.
Deeper collaboration, unified design.
