‘BIM for Good’ in the spotlight at BIM Show Live 2020
11 Nov 2019
BIM Show Live 2020 guests are set to benefit from inspirational talks and discussion about how the digital construction industry is using BIM for good at the UK’s original BIM conference being held in Newcastle, UK, on 26-27 February 2020.
Responding to the topical challenges of environmental protection, health and safety issues and changing demographics, BIM Show Live’s 2020 theme aims to highlight BIM’s role in delivering positive outcomes such as helping to reduce carbon emissions, creating safer environments and maximising efficiencies in buildings and cities.
Rob Charlton, CEO of Space Group and co-founder of BIM Show Live said, “We’re delighted to announce ‘BIM for Good’ as our BIM Show Live theme for 2020.
“BIM Show Live has always encouraged positive discussions about the future. Our world faces many challenges and the construction and property industries have a huge impact on many of these. For example, 39% of carbon emission come directly or indirectly from buildings.”
“The construction sector is transforming and digitising quickly and we now have the opportunity to use many of the benefits of technology to address some of the issues facing the world. Rather than looking at resolving our own issues, we have an opportunity to play a part in solving some broader social issues.”
BIM Show Live attracts up to 400 delegates every year and provides a unique opportunity for built environment professionals to exchange knowledge on the emerging ideas and technological advancements in digital construction and beyond.
Event attendees benefit from over 30 seminar sessions and four high profile keynote speakers discussing the latest trends, innovations and exciting new projects.
Over the course of two days, sessions will be delivered by over 50 leading figures across four key content streams; Technology, Stories, People and Next Generation.
A BIM Show Live Call for Papers which will be used to source speakers for the 2020 conference is open until 7 November 2019 and submissions can be made at www.bimshowlive.co.uk.
Reflecting the 2020 event theme, a brand new award category has been added to the BIM Awards 2020. The BIM for Good Award will champion those pioneers working to help others and the environment, and is one of 10 award categories open for entries until 7 November 2019. The awards are free to enter online at www.bimshowlive.co.uk
AECOM’s Stefan Mordue, architect, project manager, author and BIM Awards 2020 judge said: “The BIM Awards are all about bringing to the forefront all of the projects and the innovative work that people are doing in the industry.
“The new BIM for Good award is about recognising those champions and their projects which are reducing carbon emissions, and creating safer buildings, better hospitals or better schools. It’s a great award to have.”
