The drive towards Sustainable Building Design and High Performance in buildings is significantly growing. Learn about how Building Information Modelling (BIM) is relevant for designing high-performance buildings.

The drive towards Sustainable Building Design and High Performance in buildings is significantly growing. This is down to a number of key factors that have a huge impact on the building and construction sectors; such as concerns over climate change and energy independence.

During this #BIMTalk session, Omar Selim will uniquely focus on passive design, efficient building services systems, advanced building simulation techniques and occupants health and comfort combined with the theories and practice of BIM in design and construction.

Omar has over 15 years of experience in BIM management across Egypt, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. He is the founder of BIMArabia and general manager of BIMArabia Research. Omar has wide experience working with large scale firms in the GCC. He was honoured at the Autodesk Digital transformation summit by the Egyptian government, for spreading and supporting the BIM culture, and community development regarding the digital transformation of the construction sector.

With a solid knowledge of the full life cycle of projects from the design stage up to completion and handing over, Omar boldly assures that the experience gained over the past years both on the professional and personal levels; qualifies him to present and share knowledge. He has worked on Low, Medium, High Rise Buildings, and master plan projects development and construction through his experience on a wide range of projects.
