DBEI Night Singapore
To continue the spirit and momentum of BILT Asia 2017 – which is to build communities around BIM/VDC and Digital Practice Integration – we decided to create a ‘FREE’ monthly BIM seminar in Singapore called DBEI Night.
DBEI Night is a series of ‘open-to-all’ seminars and workshops to educate, enhance and enlighten the local construction industry about the benefits of adopting digital technologies. We also act as a central hub for sharing knowledge, pains and lessons learned from previous project experiences. We talk about topics ranging from current to future technology trends such as Building Information Modelling, Virtual Design and Construction, Virtual Reality, Reality Modeling, LiDAR, Design Computing, Cloud Computing and even the application of Drones in Construction.
On May 25th 2017, we had our 2nd successful DBEI Night at the Autodesk Office where we received an overwhelming attendance of not less than 100 local AEC practitioners. We invited expert speakers to share their BIM knowledge and experience to the industry. Our first speaker was Dave Willard of B&V + AECOM JV where he talks about ‘All-in-One’ model approach and how it can improve efficiencies within a multi-disciplinary firm. The second speaker was Alex Nesbitt of Turner & Townsend where he talks about the strategic approach on defining a clear information requirements from client’s perspective and how these requirements can be monitored for compliance.
The event lasted for 2 hours from 7:00PM to 9:00PM, and after which we had great networking amongst the participants over a delightful array of local foods and drinks generously sponsored by our host Autodesk.
After a series of DBEI Nights in SG, we received an overwhelming response from the industry and communities around ASEAN countries. Thus, we decided to expand DBEI Night regionally. In fact, we will be having our first DBEI Night in Hong Kong in partnership with AIAB HK on the 30th of June at 7/F VTC tower (more info). We are currently in discussion with some of our colleagues and partners to host DBEI Night in Shanghai, Dubai and Bangkok.
So yes, we are coming to your place soon, and please spread the good news!!
