A Building Information Modeling (BIM) presentation and workshop will take place at Knights Park Faculty, Kingston University on Wednesday 3rd December at 11am. The event will be led by Mark Job, Associate Landscape Architect and Darren Hickmott, Landscape Architect and Landscape CAD Manager of ARUP.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an integrated process built on coordinated, reliable information about a project from design through construction and into operations. It will help improve coordination, enhance accuracy, reduce waste and enable better-informed decisions earlier in the process. A BIM project would typically model all data relating to design, costings, build ability and clash detection, scheduling and procurement, sustainability impact, life cycle and facilities management factors as well as in use predictions.

In 2011, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) published a report for the Government Construction Client Group outlining the strategy to implement plans for the use of Building Information Modelling on all public sector building projects.
These plans for a phased five-year development followed the announcement that all suppliers involved in these projects would be required to use Building Information Modelling tools and techniques from 2016. The strategy aims to drive improvements in value, cost and carbon performance through a more integrated approach to design, construction and operation of facilities within the built environment.
