Hosted by Ramboll in collaboration with the Council on Training in Architectural Conservation (COTAC), the full day ‘BIM4Heritage - Where we are and where we are going’ conference will provide an honest appraisal of the use of BIM within heritage buildings and environments.
The conference will provide guidance on how BIM can be used for heritage conservation and repair and maintenance processes, review the risks and opportunities concerning the adoption of BIM and explore the increasingly advanced applications of BIM.
The comprehensive conference programme will include the following discussions;
BIM de-bunked – BIM Level 2 in the historic environment is put under the spotlight with a review of current state of play and issues facing the industry
Capabilities of information capture – The pros and cons of information capture and the issues surrounding the decisions on what level of BIM you need
The Conservation Conundrum – How heritage practitioners and estate managers can use BIM to enhance conservation work, including factors that may influence the process
BIM sensitive analysis – Where BIM tools feed complex analysis to allow detailed assessments that maximise conservation and minimise intrusion
Beyond the clouds – Reading beyond the visible surface. Future proofing the information captured and what is around the corner
Sharing their knowledge on the above will be experts; Andrew Dobson, Purcell; Carl Brookes, Ramboll; Edonis Jesus, Lendlease; Graham Stewart, Ramboll; Ingval Maxwell, COTAC; and Lewis Guy, Ramboll.
