We are proud to share Episode 3 of our ‘In Conversation’ podcast Series which is run by our BIMcommUNITY Africa members! In this episode we tackle the fundamental principles, benefits and implementations of Building Information Modelling (BIM).
BIM is the process of using 3D model information to aid professionals in optimizing projects through more effective planning, designing, constructing and management of buildings and infrastructure. BIM addresses issues concerning cost efficiency, efficient problem resolution, more effective methods of communication and efficient project delivery through increased spatial awareness, parametric design and 3D coordination. However, the adoption of technology in the build industry within South Africa has been relatively slow despite the industry becoming increasingly aware of BIM’s potential in the field.
Join our team of panellists as they explore the benefits of BIM and how our country has fared to date. We are delighted to have our following members contribute to this insightful conversation:
Gary Mansfield, Leon van Rensburg, Nick Tenner, Richard Matchett, Bruno Martorelli, Rudd van Deventer, Craig Howie with Jay Moolman stepping in as our moderator.
