CanBIM Virtual Session 2020 @ Online

Predicting how our world will be impacted due to COVID-19 is difficult. Obviously this crisis has already affected the building industry from a productivity perspective and will have a permanent effect on how we consider safety for our workers. As we consider these impacts we should expect an additional level of attention in design to be paid to Infectious Disease Control beyond Hospital environments. We should, therefore, expect that architectural design and specifications, specifically the physical gateways that control our built environment, will accommodate the technology systems and processes necessary to keep Society safe. What role will infectious disease specialists play in the design process? How will building’s IoT strategy accommodate and collect the data required to help Society perform epidemiological contact tracing? What will be the new requirements for design?  How will this impact existing buildings and future projects? What are the long term supply chain implications? We are gathering the top minds in Canada to start the discussion around this subject. Please join us!

June #BIMTalk: BIM + Virtual Reality – Game Design For Human Building Interaction
Jun 18 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
June #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.

Hassan will be showcasing possible usage for Virtual Reality as an extensive tool for scaling Building Information Modeling capabilities for AEC industry professionals. Gamification is a major technique for improving how we interact with building projects virtually and there are best practices to achieve the most engaging and rewarding interactions with BIM data. In this session, he will equally highlight how game elements can be embedded to increase motivation while learning about a building; a strategic way to improve the quality of Architectural education in design institutions. To help anyone stay ahead of the learning curve, this session has been designed to help a wide range of professionals in the AEC industry.

Learning Objectives – Attendees in this session will gain the following

  • Learn new terminologies to get started with BIM + VR
  • 3D Modeling Best practices for content
  • Locomotion and Interaction design techniques with controllers
  • Recommended Industry software and workflow
  • Beginner techniques
  • How to develop VR with minimum coding

Requirements for attendees

  • At least, beginner level in Revit or Rhino (either is fine)
  • No coding experience required
  • No VR development experience required

Hassan Anifowose is an Architect and the Co-Founder of Chronos Studeos; a design firm well-known for outstanding 3D Visualization projects in the Nigerian Design and Construction Industry. With a solid background in Leadership and Entrepreneurship, Hassan is constantly working on the edge. Hassan’s professional practice and project management experience continues to drive his passion and commitment to process improvements.

He is currently a PhD student at Texas A&M University where he is exploring new frontiers of research into the practical application of BIM and Virtual Reality for improved project performance on construction projects. He is a Full Member of the Nigerian Institute of Architects and has received several awards including the AIA’s Architect Foundation and A/E Pronet award. Beyond his expertise in the field of Architecture, he is keen to encourage young entrepreneurs who harbour a similar talent and passion for industry-related subjects. He is Creator and Chief Host of the yearly ‘Creative Architect‘ Event where approximately 1500 attendees; mostly Architects, converge to exchange enterprise ideas.

The BIM Africa #BIMTalk (June Edition) is a periodic learning-based virtual program. Join in on Thursday 18th June 2020 at 12 pm GMT.

Agora BIM World 2020

With BIM around the World.

Digitalization of the construction sector is a once in a generation opportunity to take advantage of the best practices, digital workflows, and technology skills to shift to a higher level of performance. And to succeed in this monumental task, we must build a global BIM ecosystem of shared knowledge and insights.
BIM implementation around the world: How are we advancing?

To gather the global BIM know-how, experience, and practices, Zigurat Global Institute of Technology launches an online tour around the world to discover the BIM implementation developments in different countries and geographic areas. Experts and visionaries in charge of local initiatives and benchmark organizations that shape the BIM practice of their region will present the current reality and the most noteworthy projects.

Sign up for the first online BIM event of such global dimensions and find out about the best practices around the world

Impact of BIM on Construction Professionals and development projects @ Online
Aug 11 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Impact of BIM on Construction Professionals and development projects @ Online

Driven by rapidly evolving technology in an industry that is in dire need of efficient workflows for increased productivity, Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies continue to transform traditional ways of doing things from early-stage design through multidisciplinary collaboration, construction phases and operations post-handover. Add pandemics to this equation and the need for remote working and project monitoring becomes inevitable.

This upcoming panel discussion on the Impact of BIM on Construction Professionals and Development Projects will explore all this and more for that quantum leap every 21st century built industry professional must take to embrace digital disruption and reposition for advancement in the AECO industry.

The panel is moderated by Engr. Kehinde Adeyemi, Director, BIM Africa, Nigeria. Members of the panel include Engr. Feleke Assefa – Technology Transfer Directory A/Director, Ethiopian Construction Project Management Institute (ECPMI), Selvan Murugan – Digital Practice Lead, Zutari (Aurecon South Africa), Alyssa Jairus, BIM Specialist, Baker Baynes (PTY) Ltd, South Africa. The panel is hosted by GBB Events and will be live on 11th August at 2 PM (GMT).
