Do you bring your clients to BILT?

Anyone who attends BILT would know that the biggest benefits from BIM and new technologies are not for the design team or even the contractors.  Clients have the most to gain from implementing digital technologies and many are starting to see the benefits of having a ‘digital twin’ asset.  Its great to see clients are not only recognising the benefits of BIM but, thanks to our community, are also now sharing their experiences as speakers as BILT.  Last year, we had a number of clients presenting including the University of South Australia and Kmart, and this year we are very pleased to see this trend continuing. While opportunities to speak this year are over – given the schedule is sorted, your clients might be interested in attending to see what other asset owners are learning and sharing. They are a key part of our industry, after all! There are many sessions dealing with procurement, project planning and controls, change management, enterprise information management, updates about industry initiatives, government mandates, government standards and project case studies which would also be of interest to clients and as well as a host of others.

Look out for the following sessions when you register:


Simon Vaux, Director Digital Engineering, Infrastructure & Services, Transport for NSW (TfNSW)

Session 1.2: Transport for NSW Digital Engineering Framework Program

Transport for NSW is committed to realising the full value of Digital Engineering through the delivery of the Digital Engineering Framework (DEF). This framework will build internal capability and establish a common data environment that draws together digital information systems and related datasets.  This presentation will describe how Transport for NSW views Digital Engineering and the current opportunities within both our projects and the broader industry. It will then describe how Transport for NSW is leading transformation through the initiation of the DEF Program, including case-studies and lessons learned from recent projects.


Ivan Beirne, Asset Manager, Unitywater with Toby Maple, BIM Lead, AECOM

Session 2.2: BIM is not just for buildings! Unitywater’s adoption of BIM on a Sewerage Treatment Plant

This case study looks at the adoption of Digital Engineering across Australia by governments, their agencies and specifically Unitywater. It will focus on the roadmap development of the Unitywater Asset Information Management Strategy and the actual implementation of BIM on a sewerage treatment plant upgrade. It highlights how the associated data from BIM will used throughout the asset lifecycle.  Many lessons were learnt including capability, capacity, information requirements specifications and technology benefits and shortfalls.


Andrew Curthoys, Director Infrastructure Policy at Department of State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning (DSDMIP) with Toby Maple, BIM Lead, AECOM

Session 3.2: Queensland Government – the path to widescale adoption of BIM across the state.

In 2016, the QLD government Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning declared in the State Infrastructure Plan that all government building projects would require BIM by 2020 and all infrastructure projects by 2023. See the proposed approach and find out how we intend to enable each sector in industry to become BIM capable by 2023.


Chris Linning, Manager, Building Information and Steve Lianos, Architectural Modeller, Sydney Opera House

Session 2.3: BIM for Facilities and Asset Management – Can it work?

Extending BIM into Facility & Asset Management requires commitment and understanding from designers, constructors and operators as to what is required and why it is required. This presentation will highlight some of the key challenges in implementing BIM within a world class performing arts centre where the owner is both the client and the operator.
