GreenBIM - April 2015

Following on from the (very successful) first GreenBIM conference in December, thinkBIM and Green Vision delivered a second digitally sustainable event focusing on the Construction and Assembly phase of the project life cycle, in Leeds on 1 April 2015.

This knowledge-packed afternoon discussed practical strategies, techniques, and real-life case studies demonstrating how BIM can be used by project teams on construction sites to achieve better, more sustainable, outcomes for buildings and their occupants.

Keynote speakers were:

  • Anne Kemp, Director from Atkins Global (@ackempo) who talked about behavioural change; how to plan for it, how to do it and how BIM makes this all possible
  • Richard Watson, Executive Director at RIBA Enterprises presented the NBS Digital toolkit and explained classification; two of the last major planks for Level 2
  • International Keynote speaker, James Harty, Copenhagen School of Design & Technology, looked at the cost of carbon and how BIM can fit into the future needs of a low-carbon built environment

Our chair for the afternoon was Su Butcher (@SuButcher) - Just Practising, the first lady of all things social media in construction!

This event also featured two roundtable discussion sessions, a lively pecha kucha showcase and a post-presentation networking session fuelled by food & BIM Beers sponsored by Rapid 5D.
