As BIM has become mainstream in the delivery of large-scale projects, its implementation and customization in everyday engineering are starting to capitalise on. The tools available for engineers is limitless.
Our seminar will hear from four speakers who are highly regarded in the local BIM community. Their presentations will discuss the requirements local governments are starting to enforce as well as an overview of the various tools available to practitioners. Finally, we get to hear about real work implementation of BIM on one of the largest BIM projects in the southern hemisphere – Queens Wharf.
