6:00 pm: Welcome, health & safety and house keeping - Melanie Tristram

6:10-6.30 pm: Unlock the Value! Kevin Thickett (Aurecon)
Specifying BIM effectively in RFP documents

Evidence suggests that digital tools used during design, construction, and operation, can save time and money at every stage of the building lifecycle.

These savings are not always realised, in part, due to inadequate understanding or specification at the building procurement stage.

Kevin will discuss how we can specify BIM in simple but clear terms at RFP stage. To ensure the people paying for the building unlock the financial and programme benefits through construction and beyond.

This talk will be targeted at people who procure buildings, and is suitable for all building industry professionals.
