‘BIM for Good’ in the Spotlight

Building Information Modelling (BIM), EMEA, Technology, Construction

Visitors to BIM Show Live 2020 (Newcastle, 26-27 February, 2020) will be treated to a series of discussions on how the digital construction industry is embracing BIM for good.

 

Next year's edition of the event will focus on environmental protection, health and safety issues and changing demographics - and highlight the role of building information modelling in delivering positive outcomes in areas including carbon emission reduction, creating safer environments, and maximising efficiencies in buildings and cities.

 

With over 30 seminar sessions delivered by over 50 experts across the content streams of Technology, Stories, People and Next Generation, the two-day event promises to provide up to 400 built environment professionals a forum for exchanging knowledge of emerging ideas and technological advancement in construction.

 

Rob Charlton, CEO of Space Group and co-founder of BIM Show Live, says:

"We’re delighted to announce ‘BIM for Good’ as our BIM Show Live theme for 2020.

 

"BIM Show Live has always encouraged positive discussions about the future. Our world faces many challenges and the construction and property industries have a huge impact on many of these. For example, 39% of carbon emission come directly or indirectly from buildings.”

 

"The construction sector is transforming and digitising quickly and we now have the opportunity to use many of the benefits of technology to address some of the issues facing the world. Rather than looking at resolving our own issues, we have an opportunity to play a part in solving some broader social issues."

 

A Call for Papers for source speakers who wish to attend the 2020 conference will close on 7 November 2019.

 

Additionally entries are being accepted for the BIM Awards 2020 which will feature ten categories in 2020 and are described by AECON's Stefan Mordue (who serves as a judge), as "bringing to the forefront all of the projects and the innovative work that people are doing in the industry".
