Digital Construction & BIM Workshop @ NECA HOUSE
Jun 24 @ 9:00 am – Jun 28 @ 5:00 pm
Digital Construction & BIM Workshop @ NECA HOUSE

The architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry not only lags behind manufacturing, healthcare and banking when it comes to digital transformation, it is the second least digitised industry, only marginally better than Agriculture and Hunting. Fortunately, the situation is improving. The global AEC industry is in a state of flux and the opportunities are boundless as we witness seismic changes with new processes like building information modelling (BIM) linking up with existing systems like GIS, Offsite Construction and Virtual Reality.

Where do you start your digital transformation journey from? Which software should you invest in? What are the standards, tools or workflows required to move into the digital era while maintaining legacy systems? How do you carry your clients and project partners along?

The Digital Construction and BIM Workshop is taking place in Lagos from June 24 to 28, 2019. The workshop promises an extensive exploration of Building Information Modelling (Processes, Tools, Standards) and hands-on application to Construction projects.

Scholars and thought leaders including Dr. Zulfilkar Adamu of London South Bank University, Prof. Martins Tuuli of GIMPA, Ghana, Geoff Hodgson of Loughborough University, Mrs Kudirat Ayinla of Birmingham City University and many others would be facilitating various sessions during the workshop. The workshop also features a BIM Clinic scheduled for Day 4 and Day 5 where participants can benefit from instant feedback on ongoing or planned projects.

THE PROMISE OF DIGITAL CONSTRUCTION AND BIM IN THE GHANAIAN AECO INDUSTRY

Digital Construction and Building Information Modelling (BIM) has taken the global construction industry by storm as experienced in the US, Europe, Middle East and Asia. A key driver can be attributed to the increasing demand by governments and private sector organizations in the major economies across the globe to deliver increased efficiencies and productivity in the construction sector. However, inadequate awareness among stakeholders in most African countries is a major challenge and has led to the slow-pace or non-existent BIM adoption within the African continent.

The half-day event has been carefully crafted to facilitate discussions amongst Construction professional and stakeholders towards creating greater awareness and adoption of BIM within the Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operations (AECO) industry in Ghana. The audience for the event would include Senior Representatives from the Public and Private Sectors, Regulatory and Professional Bodies, Construction and consultancy firm, Academia, and NGOs.

The event is organised in partnership with Atlantic Group, Ghana. Participation is strictly by registration. Register free here.
