RICS BIM Northern Ireland Conference

www.rics.org/bimni

The RICS BIM Northern Ireland conference follows on from RICS BIM suite of conferences which have attracted over 300 delegates throughout the UK, brought together to enhance their Building Information Modelling awareness and understanding of how this big transformation impacts practitioners within the built environment sector. RICS will be hosting this conference in conjunction with the University of Ulster with the aim of creating further networking opportunities across the sector and address the need for collaborative working in developing BIM across the supply chain.

With BIM being equally applicable to support FM and asset management, as it is to design and construction, as well as having an impact to every aspect of the Surveying profession, this conference will offer an insight into BIM implementation across Land, Construction and Property.

Des Armstrong, Director of the Central Procurement Directorate from the Department of Finance and Personnel (Northern Ireland), will be speaking at RICS BIM Northern Ireland Conference 2013. Des will be discussing the Northern Ireland public BIM implementation strategy, with insight into government initiatives in encouraging collaboration and supporting SME access to public procurement opportunities.

Through a mixture of presentations, you will be provided with a clearer understanding of BIM and advice on the level of adoption that is required in Northern Ireland.
