About the event
This would be of interest to all those who are delivering a CDM compliance role, particularly as a Principal Designer/Client. BIM is a tool than can effectively be used to give the Client a feel of what the delivered project would look like. This would be particularly important if the Client was aiming for something like a “hub” feel.
More importantly it provides the Design Team with a quick view of where there is potential clash of construction components. As a clash detection “tool” it highlights optimum “runs” for the laying of services in the same space as steelwork – an absolute benefit to those who are working in buildings requiring refurbishment and we are working around existing service layouts etc.
It is used to reduce design risk, highlight possible solutions and should be used to “house” the design risk register so that as it is updated it is in everybody’s view; and it can be used as an FM tool by the Client and or End User. This digital innovation tool has brought new life to design teams that are geographical challenged and need to hold design review meetings by skype.
