BIM is growing across the world according to the company which pioneered the design and build technology.
Speaking at the first BIM Breakfast Marek Suchocki of BIM pioneers Autodesk outlined its use in high profile projects including the Qatar Rail and high profile projects in the UK and USA, such as the new high speed railway line linking London and Birmingham and a new international airport serving Denver.
“BIM mandates are growing globally,” he said. “By learning what they need to do well, companies will ultimately gain more work.”
He told the audience of 130 that UK estimates say firms could make a 20% saving on projects by ensuring they get them right with the original model.
The next event is set for Tuesday September 16 at Dubai’s Ritz Carlton hotel and is set to build on the analysis and panel discussions of the first event in June.
