About the event

This year's event highlights 2 core issues: The People (BIM roles, responsibilities and skills development) and Business (organisational imperatives) of BIM.

Being BIM Fit requires that your people AND organisation are fit for purpose:

  • Do they understand their roles and responsibilities as BIM practitioners?
  • Do they have the relevant skills required to add value?
  • What are the organisational changes required to ensure that your entire company is BIM Fit? Hiring processes, allocation of budget, how you manage and share information?

Our 2-day event will focus on:

  • The various workstages of BIM and how to collaborate across disciplines.
  • The BIM Team Organogram - what are the various BIM roles and responsibilities within a BIM Team?
  • Where, and how, you can upskill yourself and your team.
  • BIM Organisation and Implementation - How to get Project ready.
  • The BIM Project = Information value workflow + Design workflow.
  • The BIM Organisation - HR/Salaries, Maturity path, Change management process, how to become BIM Fit.
  • Owner/Operator Case Study
  • BIM in Action Case Study

WHO should attend?

  • Senior executives and decision-makers
  • All BIM, and BIM-aspiring, professionals
  • Government and private business
  • If you are responsible for procuring, designing, building or managing ANY built asset
  • Any person entering, or currently working, in any industry related to the built environment and serious about sustainability and how we should be designing and building for a changing world
  • Educators, passionate about preparing students for a digital built environment

WHY should you attend?

  • People - if you're a built environment professional, you need to ensure that you are able to consistently add value in a rapidly changing digital environment. How do you supplement your skills and core competencies in a BIM environment? How do you remain competitive in a world where the ability to create and manage data, collaborate and add value to a larger team is imperative?How do you position yourself for the future of work?
  • Business - You cannot build for tomorrow with yesterday's skills and resources. How do you remain relevant and competitive in a world of digital twins and smart cities? How do you add value to a collaborative ecosystem that is generating and using intelligent data throughout the entire project lifecycle? How do you continue to attract the best talent if your approach and methodologies are not consistent with where the world is heading? How do you grow a bricks-and-mortar business in a digital and connected world?

"The global building information modelling market size is valued at USD 7.9 billion in 2023 and is projected to reach USD 15 billion by 2028. Growing government initiatives for the adoption of BIM are among the factors driving the growth of BIM market share."

If you are involved in procuring, designing, building or managing ANY built asset, you cannot afford to not implement BIM in your company and your projects. The CIDB is currently working on a BIM Mandate as well as the National Annex to SANS/ISO19650 for South Africa. If you are not BIM Fit, you will find yourself marginalised as more local and international companies insist on BIM and SANS19650 compliance if you want to pitch for their business. 

It's not a case of IF, but WHEN. And that time is now.
