Institution of Structural Engineers announces BIM 2015 Conference

The Institution of Structural Engineers has announced it will host a conference exploring Building Information Modelling (BIM) in 2015.

‘BIM 2015’ will take place on 30 April at the Institution’s new International Headquarters in Bastwick Street, London.

The Conference will provide delegates with an early opportunity to view the new, free to use digital BIM Toolkit, funded by Innovate UK, and developed by NBS – with support from the Institution and seven other professional organisations. The Toolkit is being delivered to support practitioners and businesses of all sizes engage with the BIM Level 2 environment.

BIM 2015 will also feature talks from innovative contractors whose use of BIM in off-site manufacturing has transformed their approach to projects. It will also present sessions on potential indemnity insurance issues and other legal aspects associated with working in the BIM environment.

Sarah Fray, Director of Engineering and Technical Services for The Institution of Structural Engineers, said:

“The construction industry is set to evolve significantly as a result of emerging BIM technologies, so we’re delighted to launch a fresh event, providing a unique insight tailored specifically for structural engineers.”

“Our inaugural BIM Conference in 2013 was a great success, selling out quickly, and I look forward to a similarly stimulating and informative event in 2015.”
