Roundtable 1. Marc Goldman, AEC/BIM Consulting, The Importance of Building Product Content as BIM goes to the Cloud

Synopsis: Join Marc for this roundtable discussion which sheds light on the importance of Building Product Content as the AEC industry is embracing cloud-based BIM-based methods for the entire project lifecycle. Let's look at how BPM content is moving beyond 3D models and specs. Manufacturer's data is being tied into work packages that can be assigned and taken into the field, connected to forecasting costs & timelines, to performing digital layout for accurate construction execution. In this session we will walk through several ways BPM product data is used throughout a construction project, highlighting the value of high-quality building product content at various stages of the project.

Learning Objectives:
- Learn how Building Product Content data is collected and used throughout the whole project lifecycle using cloud-based BIM solutions
- Learn several ways BPM product data is used throughout the stages of a construction project, and the value of high quality BPM content along the way

Roundtable 2. Chad Clary, Studio A Architecture, What Content Do I Need? (All of it); When Do I Need It? (Right now!)

Synopsis:Manufacturers and Service Providers face a conundrum. How can they provide the information that the practitioners need while still getting the information they need to provide technical assistance and generate sales leads without giving the very people they are trying to help a migraine just to find some information? Users need information (data) and content (geometry) and they frequently need it yesterday.

Roundtable 3. Charles De Andrade, SmartBIM, The shift from Design Bid Build to Design Build - How is this changing the BIM user case?

Synopsis:WIth more private work going Design Build, and the use of IPD methodology increasing how is this changing the use of BIM? Contractors are seeing the value in Virtual Design Construction Departments. The ability to model the project and resolve most if not all of the model conflicts in virtual before on site work. The ability to deliver virtual as builts to the owner gaining traction.

Learning Objectives:
- What are the work flow changes realated to BIM? Project acquisition (business development), design development, constructability - conflict resolution
-What is changing for the BPM, Designer and Contractor
Roundtable 4. Melissa Thiessens, BCS Committee - Clients don't care about LODs, they want a functional outcome

Synopsis: Level of Detail. Level of Development. Coarse, Medium, Fine. Your clients don’t care, they want a building that works and a construction process that runs smoothly. How can we achieve the visual fidelity and convey the information that we want and need as designers without sacrificing the project?

Learning Objectives:
- Discuss what is really needed for documentation vs. handover. How much detail is too much?
- Hear from peers their experiences with manufacturer content - good & bad
- Discuss methods for recreating or simplifying content

Roundtable 3. The importance for the manufacturer to have their digital/BIM models in the As-Built model for owner, FM use, Etc, Doug Bevil

Synopsis:At the completion of a project, the one member of the “Building Team” that benefits most from BIM is the building owner. The As-Built Model, serves as a digital representation of the building and all of its contents. Building owners are starting to demand that their project are done in BIM. It avails them to easier interaction with the building team during the design and construction of the project and provides performance, security, safety and maintenance long after the project is completed.

Objectives:
- Learn how to make useful content for the design industry
- Learn how manufacturers’ content impacts the design process
- Learn how good content will help your business get more orders

Roundtable 4. How users actually use manufacturer content, Jon Atkinson, CTC

Synopsis:As manufacturers develop Revit content they sometimes go down the wrong path and either add useless functionality (from a design perspective), or completely miss how their content fits into the design process. This Round Table is intended to bring manufacturers and users together to provide valuable feedback to the manufacturer on how best to develop their content to make it useful.

Objectives:
- Learn how to make useful content for the design industry
- Learn how manufacturers’ content impacts the design process

Configure, Automate, Innovate: Industrialized BIM in a World of Variation
11:15 am - 12:30 pm
Ken Flannigan, KONE
BCS

Speaker: Ken Flannigan, KONE
Synopsis:
Vertical transportation equipment is, by nature, highly configurable. To put the opportunity and challenge in perspective, there are more possible configurations of just KONE equipment than there are stars in the Milky Way galaxy (that's 100 billion). 
On top of the configuration variety, we are challenged by the wide variations of project expectations regarding BIM.
  It has been a focus of KONE's Technology and Innovation group to bring digital intelligence and automation to bear on these issues and what we've learned stretches far beyond configuring products and takes us into fundamental questions about how we make construction cost decisions, communicate digitally, and even how people move through our built environments.

Learning Objective:

- Learn how designers and builders can interact and benefit from industrialized BIM workflows in the planning of a project's vertical transportation solutions.

Creating BIM Objects to International Standards
1:30 pm - 2:45 pm
Dr Stephen Hamil, Direcot of Research and Innovation, NBS
BCS

Speaker: Dr Stephen Hamil, Direcot of Research and Innovation, NBS

Session:

NBS have created objects for over 300 different organisations across the UK, Australia and Canada. These objects have ranged from ceilings to boilers to external furniture. What is unique to NBS is that all of the objects created are to an object standard. The main benefit of this is that all designers using objects from NBS can benefit from consistent information within the models they create.

In this discussion, Stephen will walk through how to create objects to this object standard using the NBS tools and guidance available. Topics such as naming conventions, classifications, international property sets, value types, geometry, space data, functional behaviour and meta data will be explored. During this demonstration Stephen invites you, the attendees to contribute your thoughts and ask questions.

Object representations in IFC, Revit and ArchiCAD format will be demonstrated and those attending the class will leave with a deeper understanding of how to create BIM objects to a consistent quality standard.

Learning Objectives:

- How to create objects to an object standard using the NBS tools and guidance available

- Explore topics such as naming conventions, classifications, international property sets, value types, geometry, space data, functional behaviour and meta data

Roundtable 1. Stephen Hamil, NBS, The Construction industry needs to standardize its processes and data structures and enable value through the use of digital technologies

Synopsis:When starting out on a BIM journey, the quickest wins can often be around drawing generation and clash detection. However as an organizations adoption matures then the discussion most often turns to information management. This information management includes data that lives in sources other than just the 3D model.

To effectively manage information between organisations, agreed standards and processes are required. In this roundtable discussion, current and future workflows will be examined. It will be relevant to those working in design, construction and facility management.

Learning Objectives: ?
- How the wider industry is tackling challenges around information management on BIM projects
- How you can improve your processes to provide those you work for and those you work with the benefits of BIM
- How to set up a BIM project to succeed from the start
