    In an increasingly smart world - from homes to cities - data is the key to understanding more about our environment, our lives, our present, our future. How does this intersect with the current demographic revolution? How can technology help design a more equitable and sustainable society and support the needs of a population that will see more than 2.1 billion people over the age of 60 in 2050, representing 21.3% of the global population?

    There are two types of BIM models; 1. Those with incomplete data. 2. Which begs the question, is some data better than no data? Our talk focuses on the importance of ‘Big Data’ being more than just about ‘Data’ and how data science could help the entire BIM brigade rid the world of inadequate data. Whilst BIM data is plentiful and (should) be easy to collect, the real value is in the structure, relationships, analytics and ultimately, the end users need and utilisation of data, otherwise as the speakers Ian Yeo and Scott Pilgrim will ask the audience, what’s the point? Using one screen for providing achingly simple graphics, Ian will deliver his Top 6 data science and Big BIM Data insights. Stealing and using a second screen, Scott will interact with the audience by encouraging them to get involved with their phones and the use of Menti.com to dispel some myths and take a stab at some BIM and data related statistics, before Ian presents the facts. Yes it’s a techy talk on data science, but by experienced BIM managers that have learnt the dark arts in order to not only deliver better data for their clients, but also to create BIM management and coordination hacks that result in less time collating, structuring and validating data. It's a swift, interactive tour around the combustion engine that is the BIM model, proving how with the right data, the BIM driver will experience a much smoother ride!

    At David Miller Architects we have applied a new approach to project and information management which has significantly increased productivity. It’s something we’ve been working on for the past 12 months, to allow us to streamline internal processes and provide a better overall client experience. We have created an Architects digital toolkit aimed at the management and delivery of projects, which is helping us to meet the demands of the client for speed, scale and production. Whilst speed of delivery is of vital importance, to save time on a project means to save on costs too. In this session we will share the processes we have developed and the outcomes we have seen. Our primary case study will reference three residential projects for a local authority that we are delivering simultaneously. We will show how our toolkit has enabled us to create synergies across all three sites and how, by combining the use of digital technologies and software, such as Dynamo, NBS Chorus and Smartsheets, we are reducing risk and increase meaningful outputs.

    Architects and designers today work with a variety of tools within the construction industry. Arguably there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ tool that succeeds in being advantageous for all design stages however we have developed a process by which technology is the driving force behind which tools we work with. If we therefore use a variety of tools for their beneficial purposes we can really push the boundaries of digital design expression and expertise, and readily address challenges in coordination, collaboration and production. At Zaha hadid we explore the use of a variety of tools and processes such as the development of bespoke plugins to transfer geometry and metadata, as well as the use of VR to coordinate our buildings in the digital world. In this presentation Zaha Hadid Architects will share their experience in these processes within the context of live projects.

    Information is an important asset in its own right, yet we don’t recognize it. Defining, planning, delivering & checking provides the golden thread & feedback loop to reduce the performance gap at handover. Managing the information ecosystem on projects cuts down the waste, the risk & ultimately the chaos which leads to so many issues. Information is the building blocks of BIM, having a deeper understanding of it will enable us to improve interoperability, join up technology & give people what they need to carry out their work. It’s time to improve our digital literacy! We will cover information theory, openBIM and why huge/multiple documents just won’t work anymore to manage the complexity of information. As part of this presentation we will also introduce the background to how we arrived at our chosen technology solutions. Part 2 to be presented on Day 2 will follow up with a live demonstration of these selected technology solutions.

    We would like to present the work we have been doing on an integrated IoT-BIM system for the management of site equipment. The management of construction’s equipment fleet is a key contributor to construction performance. Site equipment represent a significant percentage of the total cost of projects; are a critical ‘bottleneck’ resource that is linked to delays, and a major contributor to on- and off- site congestion and air pollution. Their effective management represent a key opportunity for economic, environmental and safety efficiency gains. Equipment default telematics systems are increasingly providing important operational data (e.g., working hours, fuel consumption, fault code, etc.) but these have many limitations such as: they are restricted to heavy equipment; they do not capture all data required for effective management of construction equipment fleet, and data is not aggregated from across disparate systems to enable intelligent decisions. Moreover, data from IoT systems is not linked to any Building Information Modelling (BIM) environment (e.g. 4D BIM), making it challenging to contextualise the operation of construction fleet equipment and to inform more intelligent and proactive deployment decisions. During this project we worked with experts from the largest infrastructure projects in the UK to identify the key challenges facing site equipment fleet and the key use cases to be addressed. We reviewed existing telematics systems to identify their capabili

    Various new innovative processes and digitalisation are being implemented with BIM, e.g. AR/VR, Blockchain, DfMA and more. But what are the legal and contractual impacts and how do you avoid taking on unnecessary risks? Do we even have BIM legal and contractual issues correctly managed by now? Lawyers generally are not very technology/innovation-aware so what do the industry do about this? In this practical session, May will consider the current and imminent new innovations being implemented and introduced with BIM, the resulting legal and contractual issues and potential disputes and how these can by reasonably mitigated and dealt with. Would you rather face an expensive and time-consuming dispute or unpaid additional services/works, or get your risks and contracts right at the beginning?

    Does BIM improve client satisfaction? Intuitively, the answer is obvious, however there is a lack of clear objective evidence to substantiate the case. This is a story about how we sought to research whether BIM really does improve client satisfaction for a global architectural practice, The Buchan Group. The evidence that will be presented supports the intuitive opinion, BIM does have a positive impact on client satisfaction. This will outline how objective statistical analysis was undertaken that compares projects that have adopted BIM processes with those that have not and the resultant impact. Most significantly, it was determined that the clients rated the quality of documentation for the BIM projects significantly higher than the non-BIM projects, and this is clearly shown to be because BIM was adopted, and resulted in improved performance for the completed project. The evidence has potential to influence fundamental change within the business where the adoption of BIM processes is becoming business as usual. The audience will be able to use the evidence presented and utilise the framework deployed in this research to undertake their own analysis. We are keen to encourage other organisations to undertake similar research in order that there is an increase in evidence-based work that shows the benefits of BIM; moreover it influences industry stakeholders that, as we already intuitively know, BIM is the way forward.

    BIM models are made of objects with extensive sets of properties. Compared to traditional design software this concept brings a range of opportunities to automate new workflows improving productivity and extracting all sorts of information. This is also now at anyone’s reach, thanks to the rapidly expanding set of tools available to the users. As an Architect currently focusing on BIM, I’ve always been passionate about computation and processes.. From small tools to full-fledged plugins, I built many components that help my colleague’s workday and the delivery of large scale BIM projects. Using practical examples in Dynamo, Python, C# and others, this lecture will explore some of the opportunities behind an automation approach to BIM.

    At Curtins we believe BIM, technology, data, processes and industry standards are the future of the construction industry. Over the decade we have come a long way and built firm foundations and advancements in digital construction. As one of the first engineering consultants to achieve BSI BIM Kitemark, and two-time winners at the prestigious BIM Show Live awards, we have worked to embed BIM in to the culture of our staff. We ensure every project is delivered as BIM Stage 2 compliant in accordance with ISO 19650. In our session we will explore our BIM journey weaved through one of our exemplar Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA) precast projects. The traditional way of detailing precast structures was to create sets of plans, construction details and sections in AutoCAD and to use all three pieces of information to create a panel drawing. We have thrown these historic methods by the wayside, using Revit as our primary authoring tool. We will showcase our methods and associated processes for detailing and delivering precast structures along with time saving and benefits the 3D model provides to all teams. Through this project we will also demonstrate innovating tools we have developed through Dynamo and the Revit API one of which includes our Health and Safety tool to align with PAS1192-6 during this process to improve construction safety during the installation process.

    SETTING THE SCENE For the past 5 years, I have been collecting KPI data against 170+ projects, all of which I have been involved. Unfortunately, although BIM has been growing in popularity, with a significant boost in clients driving digital information outcomes through BIM enabling in those 5 years, their approach in the last 2 years has been declining rapidly in quality, notably around how they define their requirements. I will demonstrate the impacts this is having on the industry, whereby the whole supply chain is delivering information that adds little or no value to them or the client because the information that’s collected isnt required, or consumable INDUSTRY`S BIM LEVEL 2 BAU OBJECTIVE I will talk about what the UKBIMAlliance`s objectives were around making BIM Level 2 BAU by 2020 and where we are in reality to those objectives I will discuss why BIM Level 2/UKBIMFramework is not BAU based on the data I have collected, and why we wont reach it any time soon. I will focus on how the original 2011 obligations were never completed. Today, the initial support has faded, and public sector clients have reverted to traditional means. MOVING FORWARD I will discuss what has to change if we are ever to expect the new UKBIMframework and its underlying ISO19650 standards to become BAU. I plan on explaining the critical steps that organisations need to get right if we are to move forward

    I will detail the auditing process taken on the World Cup Final Stadium 2022 (90.000 seats), under extensive scrutiny for its high cost estimate. As a result of the efficiencies identified via this method, the client saved 40% on a £2Bn construction cost. Through detailed demonstrations of Dynamo scripts and BIM workflows, this article will pass on lessons learned from this intensive project. The ultimate objective will be to build on best practices used by all involved in the design process. The talk is relevant for any architect, programmer, project manager or those familiar with BIM software across the built environment. Adding to the combined BIM knowledge in the industry, the key takeaways discussed here will continue to save thousands of man-hours and millions of pounds for clients and contractors all over the world. The article will also demonstrate how efficient solutions can translate into multiple stadium configurations, including parameters such as seat numbers, bowl shape and pitch size.. Significant investment in research and development has directly led to procuring larger, more complex and higher-profile projects, demonstrating the fundamental importance of BIM in the UK construction industry.

    Automation is coming, and most of us accept that it will be an increasing part of our lives as we move towards the end of the first quarter of the 21st Century. This presentation starts with a juxtaposition of observations from the Farmer Report (a shrinking workforce, an increasing workload, a drive to increase productivity) with the Hackett report (more record keeping, more competence, more regulation). Reading these reports, illustrates automation should not be resisted. Opportunities to increase productivity, save cost and waste are often stated as imperative for the construction industry. However, this is not a black and white choice. Skills are either lost and roles end or are supported and augmented and roles enhanced. A healthy open debate around the changes coming about from technology is lacking in the construction sector with discussion often shut down because viewpoints polarised between ideological adoption and fearful denial. The presentation continues by discussing ‘lazy automation’, looking at examples of technology that at first sight many of us cheerlead, considering each for its flaws. The presentation concludes by asking hard questions about our priorities and proposing an agenda for automation and skills with reference to global observations about skills, thoughts about the strengths and weaknesses of the human brain and a discussion about decision making support from automation in the role of professionals in the built environment in the future.

    In 2016, the University commenced its campus development programme to invest £530M over the next decade. The signature element of this programme is the creation of a smart campus which supports the University’s long-term plans to ensure it remains a leading academic institution. The smart campus will cohesively knit together the existing heritage building stock on the estate alongside the integration of new facilities to create a learning environment fit for the 21st century. Mott MacDonald’s Smart Infrastructure team were appointed in the strategic advisory role of ‘Critical Friend’. We created a digital masterplan to inform the strategic context, developed a roadmap that defines future activity and the steps required to implement the smart campus. A business case has been made to support the procurement of a strategic technology partner. Ultimately the project will lay the foundation for the creation of a digital twin of the University. The Smart Campus Board – part of the World Changing Glasgow Transformation team – has identified the direct the opportunity to sustain the future success of the University through the power of digital transformation. By going digital, innovative new features and capabilities will help leverage maximum value from the University’s physical investment in its estate, helping to create high value campus services which attract and retain students.

    The importance of designing with the best tools to match the objectives of the creative leaps designer want to explore is an ever-increasing topic within the industry. Disruption of how we work and how the technology is changing the way we think about design solutions is allowing a shift in skill sets and is allowing an emergence of digital design workflows. Within this session we will look at the context of recent trends in the Architecture industry and why this is important to embrace. There will be a series of stages that designers work through at early design stages for delivering the project proposal. However, part two will focus on three design tasks that are relevant to all designers for application within their core business. From site acquisitions to distribution of spaces to optimisations of the building footprints and the building products used to constitute a design proposal. By using the Autodesk AEC Collection and tools such as FormIt Pro, Insight 360, Dynamo, Infraworks and Revit.

    There is a lot of uncertainty and confusion in how to apply, and conform to, the BS EN ISO 19650 series. Nonetheless, a requirement to comply with these standards is already being included in contracts; often in a vague way - simply asking parties to "achieve" or "comply with" BS EN ISO 19650. There is a tension and lack of understanding between the technical/commercial side of the construction industry and the legal community as they wrestle with this new internal BIM standards. This is resulting in unnecessary misunderstandings, disputes and additional risks or liability.

    This is Part 2 of our presentation on ‘Better Information Management (BIM) for good’ and follows Part 1 delivered on Day 1. In 2019 we launched a new concept for managing information, referred to as our ‘Information Hub’; a cloud-based solution for documenting client’s information requirements as well as managing information delivery. The ‘Information Hub’ is supported by our ‘Information Toolkit’ which supports far more complex data requirements. Both solutions, along with a number of other linked tools, form an ecosystem to support best practice information management. But the important thing to note is we are NOT selling software! This presentation shows you a glimpse of how anyone can follow a similar approach. Better information management will unleash the ability to truly drive ‘BIM for good’!

    Story - how we are working with a client adopting BIM from scratch, and delivering the biggest property programme in the UK. The programme is ambitious in terms of scale, time, security, stakeholders and logistics. We have worked as a partnership with HMRC to challenge and stretch each other’s ambition. Our role, to deliver the BIM strategy, upskill the client and help set a digital vision. Across the programme we delivered programme & information management, BIM management, Built Asset Security consultancy, project and cost management as a service – supported with enterprise analytics and visual reporting through BIM. Costing through BIM across all projects with an aligned data structure. The programme, which is to be delivered in accordance with the BIM Level 2 mandate will transform HMRC as an organisation. Whilst providing short term ROI during the project the digital approach to real estate delivery will leave the legacy of an Asset Information Model network - a digital estate representing the 13 large, intelligent Regional Centres, 4 Specialists Sites and a London Headquarters equipped with the digital infrastructure and training facilities needed to support the client. HMRC had never undertaken a project in this way No public sector organisation to date has undertaken a programme of this scale in this way There are significant interfacing parties who do not fall under the BIM Level 2 mandate The scale of information generated is enormous

    As investigations into the cause and effect of the Grenfell catastrophe are considered, developers, designers and contractors are trying to anticipate the new regulatory regimes being likely to be imposed. Building owners will need clearer and more reliable information about the products and materials installed and how they are expected to perform. Post-build, BIM-enabled datasets will allow asset owners to maintain safety and integrity throughout the lifecycle of a building. Implemented correctly, BIM processes can eliminate many areas of product or performance ambiguity but presently, many of these processes are still being delivered manually, reliant on people interpreting documents and applying requirements properly. In our digital age, this should no longer be the case. At BIMShow 2019, we described the processes and tools we have developed to create the “Golden Thread” from design, construction to handover. These transform the document-based specifications into a fully digital format that can be automatically validated. In 2020, we’re back to explain how that move from Analogue to Digital has developed. We will show you what we have experienced by applying new methodology to large residential projects for Local Authorities and Housing Associations. We will show technologies that enable manufacturers and merchants to integrate into BIM processes, ensuring that contractors are provided with the data they need to capture the details of what is actually installed.

    In the construction industry we see and hear about BIM everywhere. Technology is progressing, models are being issued on more projects and the terminology, processes and standards are becoming more widely adopted across the industry. We’ve reached the Architect’s who are producing models with embedded data and using the benefits of the visuals from the model for stakeholder engagement. We’ve reached the Engineer’s who are linking their data and analysis into a model based workflow to gain additional efficiencies. We’ve reached the Contractor’s who are using information from designers to reduce clashes and other problems on site alongside 4D modelling and capturing as built data in a digital way. HOWEVER We still haven’t reached the wider audience we need to in order to really make a difference! This presentation will discuss some of the reasons why we believe BIM is still seen as a construction industry transformation rather than a wider digital revolution. The case for BIM as we know is much bigger than this but we need to prove and show real demonstrable value to a wider range of stakeholders to achieve this change. BIM is not about models, standards and acronyms it’s about people, lots and lots and lots of people. BIM needs to win the hearts and minds of these people and to do that we as an industry need to change the way in which we tell our story. BIM needs to be less ‘what’ and more ‘why’, giving people the reasons they need to incorporate BIM into business as usual.

    Pollard Thomas Edwards is a London based practice of 150 people that specialises in producing residential projects of the highest standard across the UK. At Beechwood West, Swan Housing Association and PTE have created a new neighbourhood in Basildon Essex, of 250 uniquely customisable houses, using modular construction. The biggest challenge for this project was to combine the ability to customise both external and internal features of a house, resulting in over 1 million possible variations. To address this, our BIM approach used a range of software; at the core of the process we used Revit to model the variants using design options, then Excel to organise the options. The sheer number of options resulted in a huge amount of information to be controlled and produced. We therefore integrated automisation technology using Dynamo. The Revit models were used in a more user-friendly format for the end user to visualise and make their choices. Potential buyers can design their new home via an online configurator. They can select their plot, choose preferred house type, number of bedrooms, amend plan arrangement and pick external finishes such as brick type. Residents can even add bays or extensions - each home is unique and every customer is a designer not only of their own home, but also of the street scape. Our seminar will showcase our approach to the technological challenges of balancing customisation and modular design and how this approach transformed the project’s delivery.

    British Standards, International Standards, UK BIM Framework, Stage 2 BIM: the focus of many a Twitter debate and LinkedIn postings. Everyone is a self-proclaimed expert, and are always right; everyone else is wrong… and are so far removed from the reality of day to day office working. This session throws away all high-level, technologically advanced concepts and presents a day in the life of the average delivery team, compiled from real-world experiences when trying to implement “BIM”. You won’t hear any crystal ball gazing disruption here, instead you’ll be more likely to hear a discussion on why an architect can’t get their drawings to list in numerical order in Windows. Nigel Davies, Director of Evolve Consultancy, presents a semi light-hearted look at the state of the industry beyond the cutting edge, highlighting real problems faced by real people on real projects without the need to polish the results into a marketing-friendly success story. Only the names have been changed to protect the guilty. Through this session, you will appreciate that many of us are facing exactly the same issues, and much of it is far more basic than you would be led to believe. Only attend this session if you: • Want case studies that tell the truth and show successes and failures • Would like to find answers to the debates that rage across the coffee machine in architects, engineers, contractors and clients offices • Are facing a series of mundane and trivial challenges adopting BIM and ISO

    Nick Tune has been hiding away for 2 years with a crack team, undertaking mission impossible; transforming the way Atkins delivers engineering projects in the new digital world. And now is the time to share the successes and failures. The session will give a warts and all review of what has worked, what is working and what has been a total failure. Unsurprisingly the biggest challenge is always people, so the strategies used; persuasion, demanding and begging will be shared with attendees including some humorous and not so funny anecdotes from along the journey. The session will show how information management is the bedrock to digital transformation (and usually overlooked by senior leaders) and what are the common pitfalls in delivery that people should avoid at all cost. It will look at the role of the client with examples from the ones that are leading us to the damn right awful, who we have had to persuade, beg, and trick. Finally, we will talk about what this means to our business models and how commercial models must and are changing because of digital transformation. So, come along, listen, chat and steal as many of our ideas as you like.

    Some of the world's biggest leading companies are embracing virtual twinning - but where is this trend going and how does it apply to property? This presentation looks at the history behind the concept of digital twins and how the idea was turned into reality. We look at how other industries are using digital twins and how combining today’s processes such as BIM, Industry 4.0 technology and using the principles set out in the Gemini principles we can create digital twins for property today.

    On a BIM project, information is developed incrementally through the project timeline using a number of software tools. The information, whether represented on drawings, schedules or specifications must be classified consistently and coordinated. Using a modelling environment it is possible to achieve this. However, on many BIM projects, the ambition is largely around efficiently coordinating the drawings and a degree of clash detection. This class will look at a number of stories from successful projects where the integrated BIM environment goes much further and focuses on the delivery of well-structured information. Four stories will be told from different parts of the industry. 1. The large international multi-disciplinary design practice 2. The small architectural practice providing technology-led solutions 3. The architectural practice that works with neither PCs nor Revit 4. The large client requiring transparency, an audit trail and standardization on repeat projects This class will show clear and practical examples on how to develop clear information requirements, design responsibility matrices, project information standards, coordinated specifications and models and how to track acceptance criteria and information submittals through the construction stage of a project.
