Crowds Gather at Swinburne University for BIM/3D Technical Event
Crowds Gather at Swinburne University for BIM/3D Technical Event 19 Sep 2016

Fantastic turnout at Melbourne's feature technical event of 2016 last week at Swinburne University! This well attended event was aimed at all engineers, contractors, suppliers, architects and others in the concrete construction world. Our presentations focussed on the future of concrete design, construction and 3D printing. This one of a kind event certainly delivered very informative and relevant content for all those who design concrete structures. All capped off with a trade show and student beam competition.
 
Speakers included a number of industry experts in the facets of design and construction, looking at:

  • BIM Initiates: key note speaker from the Victorian Government's Future Industries Project outlining grants and funding available to Victorian based projects
  • How engineering software can be integrated with 3D modelling for concrete
  • Case study that explored how BIM was used as part of a major 43 level residential tower construction in central Melbourne. Australia's tallest prefabricated structure!
  • Research into 3D printing of concrete, current technology available and future capabilities - jointly presented by Monash & Swinburne Universities
