This post is on behalf of those nice people at BIM4SME who with Asite are running a BIM live competition in March. This puts learning and practice all together. A great opportunity for experts and newbies to get together and show what they can do! Details on the website.
The BIM4SME Build the UK Live the website is finally live for teams to sign up http://www.buildearthlive.com
Here is another bit of info on the competition for your information;
The competition runs for 48 hours from mid day on 16th March. The judges will deliberate on the 19th March and awards will be announced the following day (20th March).
Through cloud-based collaboration the event is open to world-wide participation.
Whether you don’t know what BIM stands for, or you’ve been running jobs for years using a BIM process, you are welcome on BIM4SME’s Build Newcastle Live playing field!
The event enables SME’s to engage with the BIM Process in a risk free environment. We want firms that have been embracing the BIM process to show other SME’s the benefits it can bring. BIM will only be a success within the UK if all aspects of the construction supply chain embrace its ethos and methodologies.
On 16th March, a specially chosen and internationally known site in Newcastle UK will be detailed, along with a brief for a significant multi-use development. Here’s an early look at the location: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzzJ2zMIdvQ
All the key information will be published in interoperable formats. Teams will be free to exploit any interoperable technology and to add updates to a public collaboration site and all visitors will be free to comment.
Teams will be asked to develop an outline proposal by midday on the 16th March. The event will conclude at midday on 18th March and will be followed by presentations to the press, with a final jury making a number of awards”
The competition needs BIM Champion firm to lead novice teams and as hub champions you will be ideally placed to know who the leaders in your area are. Please could you forward this to any BIM champion firms or novice SME’s that would be interested in learning more or taking part. This really is a good opportunity for the hubs and the UK to help the struggling firms out there! These kind of events trump any conference for a learning experience you really do take knowledge away with you that you can start using on live projects.
Feel free to give me a call to discuss.
