About the CPD Talk
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a three-dimensional modelling process that provides architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) practitioners a collaborative platform to plan, design, coordinate, visualise and manage the building and infrastructural projects. Its cutting-edge use of computer technology allows for unprecedented levels of collaboration at different stages of construction from initial stages of planning and design to construction. In the post-construction phase, it also provides a powerful platform for facilities management. In recent years, we also begin to see the application of BIM in the field of built heritage conservation.
The speaker is an experienced practitioner who will share with us his experience in using BIM for heritage projects. He will also use the opportunity to field questions and initiate discussions with attendees about local practices and application of BIM in the field of heritage conservation.
