Be2camp - where Web 2.0 meets the Built Environment

Be2camp is for people interested in openly sharing how the latest web and mobile applications and web design techniques (Web 2.0 - blogs, Twitter, Wikis, etc) can help build a better, more sustainable built environment - planning, design, construction, occupation and management of buildings, services, landscape, etc.

Events - In October 2008, the first 'unconference' focused on Web 2.0 and the built environment, was held in London. Since then, independently and with partners, we've held over 40 further events (sharing literally 100s of presentations) - in Birmingham, Colchester, Dundee, Leeds, LiverpoolLondon and Manchester - and in 2011 we held the first Be2Awards.

#Be2campOxon - Beyond Print

I'm very excited to be able to invite you to join me for the second #Be2campOxon - an afternoon of great speakers, intriguing conversations and fantastic cake.  Last year's event was hugely enjoyable and I had great feedback from attendees.  When I did a very brief evaluation three months after the event it was great to find that virtually every person had gone on to have further conversations with people they'd met on the day.  Be2camp is all about meeting inspiring people and sharing ideas.

Be2Awards takes a 2014 break

Posted by Paul Wilkinson on July 22, 2014 at 11:03 0 Comments

The Be2Awards will not be held in 2014.

We (Martin Brown and I) had a long discussion about the programme, and about our respective workloads (the Awards take up a significant amount of time to organise). From a purely practical point of view, we decided that we just didn't have the bandwidth to make the events a success this year.

However, we also wondered: is there a need for the Be2awards any more?

When we started Be2camp six years ago, social media adoption was in its infancy and few built environment professionals were using Web 2.0 and related technologies. In 2008, we held our first 'unconference' and - slowly but surely - adoption grew, to the point that…


Not for profit organisation, BIM4SME launches new website as a BIM hub of information for SMEs

Posted by JOHNEYNON. on June 26, 2014 at 22:53 0 Comments

BIM4SME is inviting small and medium size companies to come and explore its new website.

The new website has been designed to provide an easy flow and user-friendly experience with improved navigation and functionality throughout, allowing smaller companies to access information relevant to them and their BIM journey.

One of BIM4SME’s goals is to ensure communication of simple messages to help smaller organisations and sole traders understand the benefits of implementing a BIM strategy suitable to their business, their strategy and their current practice.

Widespread assumption still exists amongst those not making the steps towards the understanding of BIM. Many misplaced messages have been interpreted through the fast moving pace of BIM, such as it being a costly and time constrained exercise, that it’s only meant for bigger projects or that a change to being BIM enabled will mean the upheaval of current processes. BIM4SME is determined to…
