9:15 – Adam Lamping – thinkproject
BIM has helped to start the AECO sector to think about data, but to date BIM has had mixed results in terms of impacting outputs and outcomes. One reason for this is that typically the delivery of BIM relies on several tools that specialise in a small number of use cases, often adding cost and complexity which diminish the potential gains. Thinkproject DESITE offers the ability to undertake a number of BIM use cases in a single solution, providing automation opportunities and a more rationalised IT investment.
