7.10pm - Cyrille Pennavaire - Fletcher Construction - Best-practice on (open)BIM use from the Netherlands: the Federated Hamburger & the basic Information Delivery Manual.
Although BIM is not mandatory in the Netherlands, the AECO industry has quickly adopted the use of BIM in the past decade. The use of Aspect models and open standards such as IFC and BCF (BIM Collaboration Format) is common practice. In 2016 an industry led open BIM initiative was launched, and has been adopted by over 200 companies within a timespan of just a year. The introduction of a 'basic IDM' (Information Delivery Manual) is not 'new', but merely a simple translation of how to use the open standards effectively, so that essential information can be shared in a structured manner between organisations collaborating within a project. The use of open Standards and the basic IDM will be explained using best-practise examples from the ‘Space-S’ and ‘Blok 63’ projects.

7.40pm - Drinks and Networking
