Presentation 1 - Mark Horrocks, Central Innovation - Collaboration Workflows

Using Model Checking software to find Issues with your collaborators models is one thing, to explain to them where the issues are within their own models can be the hard part.

"It’s the duct running near Grid D on level 4 by the main Lifts" - there could be any number of ducts there, there could be 1000’s of duct segments in the entire project. Using BCF files to streamline this process, Mark will run through the issue resolution workflow using Solibri, Revit and KUBUS BCF Manager plug-in.

Presentation 2 - Mark Thomas, NextSpace - BIM and 3D Asset Management beyond Construction

Using BIM models to go beyond Building Information Modellingto Building information Management requires a fresh look at the way data and models are handled. To fully realise the value of 3D models in the asset management stages post construction, requires a new way to handle the storage, management and linking of data from multiple sources and the ability to create easy to use data interaction tools designed for very specific processes. This reduces training time, cost and data entry errors. Mark will present new approaches to data integration and analysis for asset management based on a background of aerospace and plant & process systems.
