Book now for the second event in the 2015 series of Geo:The Big 5 events. BIM: The Next Level will be held in Cambridge on 23 April 2015. In addition to the plenary presentations, we have a fantastic range of speakers demonstrating the latest thinking and case studies in applications of geographic information. 

With the implementation for BIM Level 2 (2016) well progressed, the focus has shifted to preparing for Level 3 (2018) and beyond. We look at the real benefits in social performance where even modest improvements translate into mind blowing financial savings.

BIM, Asset Management and Geospatial are all firmly inter-linked – and their advancement relies, in part, on integrating skills and technologies across all the different solutions.

This is not a trivial undertaking. A convergence of expertise and ideas is required, and a receptiveness to developing solutions in a collaborative way. Key issues identified are a common language, spatial reference, data schema and specifications, definition of requirements and deliverables, system integration and progression to integrated work and information flow.

Much work remains to be done to achieve the UK Government’s demand for roll-outof BIM across the construction industry, which gives rise to great opportunities for the geospatial profession or at least for those prepared to adjust to market demands.

A gap still exists between the BIM community and the geospatial community and this must be bridged if we are to fulfil the UK Government targets. The wider gaps between BIM, Asset Management and Geospatial should also be bridged if the geospatial community is to contribute to the demands and requirements of industry sectors like AECOO, utilities and oil and gas.

The agenda includes time for networking, so our event is a great opportunity to make valuable connections or catch up with existing contacts.
