BILT ANZ Collaborating SMART in 2018
BILT ANZ are very pleased to announce a new partnership with BuildingSMART Australasia.
BILT and BuildingSMART recognise that we have complementary objectives in the digital built environment, and through this collaboration we will be able to drive better outcomes in our industry.
BuildingSMART are providing support by promoting BILT ANZ 2018 to their members and encouraging participation in our event. We look forward to our ongoing partnership.
BuildingSMART Australasia, are the local body of the international organisation and are “tasked with driving the uptake of Building Information Modelling. BuildingSMART’s mission is to work with key industry and government leaders to develop, maintain and facilitate the use of open BIM standards, like IFC, collaborative processes and integrated practices.”
To support industry standards, BuildingSMART have recently released BIMcreds, an online assessment tool for practitioners to validate their BIM skills and knowledge.
BuildingSMART representatives will be at BILT ANZ and you will be able to catch up on their news in our Presentation Zone on Friday lunchtime. The Presentation Zone is a new feature at BILT ANZ 2018, and is a space within the exhibition hall for our partners and sponsors to give brief introductory talks and demonstrations during lunchtimes.
We also have John Mitchell from the organisation presenting on the Friday about their international project called Model Setup that has developed software implementation guidelines for BIM model alignment using IFC4, the creation of best practice documents and most importantly, BIM/Geospatial integration for major software tools. In other words, different software products will be able to produce the same locational information, and different model authors will be able to set up models consistently so that those downstream can actually get value from using BIM.
