#BIMTalk: BIM + Virtual Reality – Game Design for Human Building Interaction

What is possible? Where is the world going with respect to Architecture and Technology?. Recent trends continue to show increased interests in improved capabilities of Building Information Modelling with promising technologies. Compare to existing approaches of interaction with information inside Architectural Projects rooted in BIM which is limited to 2-D, Virtual Reality offers a new 3-D and 4-D approach to offering even more with presence and interaction. Leveraging on these technologies, decision making has never been easier and faster overall leading to time and cost savings alongside knowledge retention.

#BIMTalk: BIM Implementation: Theory and Practices

BIM delivers benefits throughout the building project lifecycle. Make better design decisions, build efficiently, manage and maintain building portfolios effectively. BIM methodology supports projects throughout the lifecycle of design, construction up to the operation of the building. This presentation will touch on the implementation of BIM in theory and practices based on experiences gained from various projects. Read More

#BIMTalk: From Level of Development (LOD) to Level of Information Need

In projects requiring ’BIM’ we are often asked to define the ‘LOD’ of objects within Building Information Models. In the Client’s Requirements as well as in the BIM Execution Plan, we need to fill long spreadsheets where objects are classified in different classification systems and a ‘LOD’ is required at each stage.

But are we sure that the ‘LOD’ concept is clear to everybody? Is it always associated to objects? Are we managing it the best way? And most of all, how can we verify and validate it?
