Top 10 Speakers At BILT Asia 2017

It’s been a very busy start to the year with the inaugural BILT Asia, Singapore event kicking off the calendar and BILT ANZ following on just 8 weeks later. BILT Asia was a fantastic success with a massive turn out of over 300 delegates.

We’ve taken some time to compile the delegate feedback and after compositing the speaker session scores and handout material scores we can finally announce the top 10 speakers for BILT Asia 2017.

10 Jason Chen (HLW International)

Adaptive Components, Beyond the Component

9 Andrew Milburn (Godwin Austin Johnson):

Modular Door Families, Take a Test Drive

8 Behzad Meskini (DP Architects):

Steel Structure Detailing with Autodesk Inventor and iLogic

7 Nathan Love (AECOM):

Enhancing your Structural Detailing Skills

6 Deepak Maini (Cadgroup Australia):

Navisworks Clash Detection

Saving time and $$$ by setting up clash templates

5 Chris Needham (AECOM):

BIM+FM Case Study, Sydney Opera House BIM Interface Project

4 Phil Read (Read Thomas LLC):

Stop Rendering and Start Exploring, Getting Started with Revit and Enscape

Now for the top 3!
3 Ralph Schoch (Victaulic):

Routing the Pipe Over the Curve

2 Joe Banks (Nettleton Tribe):

Shared Nested Objects, Make your model light, efficient, and easy to edit

…and at number…..
1 Matt Wash (Arup):

Taking BIM for Structural Engineering to the Limits and Beyond


We’d also like to give some honourable mentions to a few people who came very close to the top 10. In no particular order; Sonny Andalis (BCA), Joseph Yau (DPR Construction), Claudio Vittori Antisari (Antonio Citterio Patricia Veil), and Kelvin Tam (DP Architects).

Planning the conference to bring you the best speakers within the best learning environment takes almost a year. And so our efforts now turn to BILT Asia 2018. We will be calling for abstracts in a couple of weeks’ time (10th July). So if you want to top Behzad Meskini and Joe Banks for the record number of abstract submissions for a single event; I’d get your thinking caps on now. The number to beat is 9!

In particular for 2018 we’d really like to see some classes that cover Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA), Cost Estimation (5D), and Generative/ Computational Design. We’d like to have some topics that appeal to Contractors and Quantity Surveyors who we’d like to see more of, to join the BILT community. Our community is all about diversity and in broadening our range of knowledge, we’d encourage users of Archicad, Tekla, and Bentley (just to name a few) to submit abstracts.
