1B How Building Information Models and Digital Twins could be used in government estates of the future
The use of BIM Level 2 became mandatory for use on all public sector works in 2016. 4 years on this session will explore where we are now and how digitalisation can be used in the development and running of government estates now and in the years to come.
Mike and Josh will show how they have been using BIM to manage the University of the West of England estate, with a particular focus on the challenges and benefits of modelling it. The digital estate is now deeply embedded into the University’s overall estates/facilities strategy with over 40 buildings modelled and even more to come.
May will discuss where the industry currently is with BIM and digital information management, the current standards and what is coming next.
Rob will join us to explain the emergence of digital twins and how advances in technological solutions will affect estate management in the future.
The session will include a panel discussion and will end with an interactive Q&A.
