BIM Conference 2017

Moving towards BIM 2020: 'Business as usual'

This year’s BIM Conference will highlight the need for engineering practices to adopt BIM within their projects as the industry moves towards the 2020 agenda – 'business as usual'.

Expert speakers will explore various aspects of BIM including security, safety, legal issues, Level of Detail (LoD) and Level of Information (LoI). The event will also include presentations and case studies delivered from both a client and consultant perspective.

The conference is a fantastic opportunity to network with other engineering professionals, learn more about BIM and extend your CPD. Don’t miss this opportunity to get involved in the 2020 agenda of the UK BIM Alliance.
