Summer Half-Day Conference 12th June 2019
Digital Collaboration
Squire Patton Boggs, 6 Wellington Place, Leeds
13:00 to 17:00, registration and lunch from 12:00

For many businesses their BIM journey starts out with the purchase of some shiny piece of technology. But quickly it becomes apparent that the move to digital construction is more about the need to transform businesses processes, behaviours and culture.
Addressing these requirements and working collaboratively is the only way to truly get the transformation that BIM can offer.

So join us at our Summer Conference, hosted by Squire Patton Boggs, to hear from our experts on how digital collaboration has helped them deliver change for their businesses and customers.
When you read, you begin with ABC; when you sing you begin with do-re-mi.
When you BIM you begin with Asset Information Requirements.

Nope, it’s not quite as catchy, but in construction terms just as important. It could even be argued that the collaborative processes of Building Information Modelling have one main aim, and that is to provide the client with an efficient, operational model. The Asset Information Requirements, defined at the very start of a project, determine the behaviours, processes and deliverables the project will need to achieve by the end.

Nigel Davies, Director at Evolve Consultancy, takes you through an easy to follow process of mapping asset requirements to the models, and how IFC and COBie can be used pragmatically to deliver against the client’s expectations. Nigel will also explain how Solibri Model Checker has been an integral part of Evolve’s validation & delivery process by drawing on case studies from ongoing projects where the asset management has been a key part of the handover requirements.
Collaboration, the Human Aspects
Whilst we often tend to talk about collaboration from a Technological perspective Elizabeth Kavanagh offers a variety of angles on collaboration. She will consider the range of relationship types that can be used to achieve the best results, discuss the definition of collaboration and consider behavioural, contractual and insurance angles showing how to build collaboration into your organisation.
Elizabeth is Head of HR and Research & Innovation at Stride Treglown and led the culture stream of the Digital Built Britain program providing a focus on the culture of collaboration. She founded the group Behaviours4Collaboration which is focussed on developing the culture of collaboration in construction. This group have developed a tool called the Collaborative Behavioural Map.
