The Program

November 18

On day one of the Summit, international industry champions will update you on the vision and roadmap of BIM and how BIM requirements are moving the industry. Learn more about contract standards, the role of BIM in the circular economy, and how openness, standardization and digitalization are creating priceless collaboration and value across industry domains, players and project phases.

Not the least, envision the future: Discover the instrumental means of producing a digital twin for the whole project lifecycle, and the use of VR and Mixed Reality to speed up the building process.

The second day of the Summit offers tailored content for BIM Managers and Super-Users of Trimble software, with the following vertical sessions:

A | for BIM/Project Managers, Infrastructure

Learn about international projects´ successful model collaboration between designer, contractor and owner; collaboration across borders, domains, and design tools; and how collaboration in a common Quadri environment can help you build a constructible BIM and digital twin. Likewise, how seamless dataflow and standards like IFC and CoClass can benefit the BIM process.

B | for BIM Designers and Contractors, Infrastructure

Learn from real live projects how to plan, design and construct a road or rail faster – using Quantm for automated alignment optimization; ensuring constructible modelling of road, rail, water and sewer in a multiuser BIM environment using Novapoint and Quadri; and to schedule and optimize the construction phase with TILOS. Learn also how Quadri helps all stakeholders to communicate within the BIM model, providing the extra project confidence.

C | for BIM/Project Management and Decision Makers, Buildings

Presentations of international exemplary building and construction projects will give you insight into successful BIM implementations – from the office desk to the construction site, and using lean and smart data, digitalization of the construction workflow, interoperability with IFC4, intelligent building information management, and more.

D | for BIM Designers, Main Software Users and Technical BIM Managers, Buildings

Learn how to use Tekla Structures to do algorithmic/parametric design of complex building structures, interoperability with IFC4 to build truly constructible models, digital model deliveries, and designing bridges using BrIM, a game changer in bridge engineering, plus more.
