BIM: compete or collaborate?

16 October 2012

2:00 PM - 4:30 PM


Harry Hems Centre, Longbrook Street, Exeter EX4 6AP


This session will challenge existing concepts of BIM. The landscape surrounding BIM will be explored to examine other factors that might contribute to cooperative ways of working.

The course will project BIM as more than simply a software platform. The creation of higher quality information, better business and project team preparation and a positive contractual atmosphere are crucial to achieving a better outcome for all stakeholders using BIM. The course will illustrate how BIM is adaptable to differing scales of mainstream practice. By the end of the course participants will have an understanding of:

  • A wider range of ingredients/tools that can be used as a BIM environment
  • The integration of BIM into a business strategy
  • Implementing BIM to differing levels on projects
  • Practical steps to incorporate terms into forms of appointment and contracts.

This course is suitable for senior practitioners, architects and their associated professional colleagues at all levels who are interested in further developing business and project initiatives using BIM methodologies.

Speaker: Steve Race was part of a team that developed one of the first 3D multi-disciplinary CAD systems at Oxford Regional Health Authority 35 years ago, a system that would now carry the label 'BIM'. He has a wealth of experience in co-operative working, which embraces software platforms, business strategies, project team facilitation and a more collaborative legal landscape as a means of exploring and implementing BIM. He has always been an independent consultant with a research, develop and practical application philosophy.
