DORMA Participates in Discussion with Leading Industry Experts
BIM Round Table
DORMA Example of our ED 100 / 250 BIM Object
The Government’s 2016 deadline for Building Information Modelling compliance is rapidly approaching. Building Products Magazine staged a Round Table of experts, which echoed BIM itself, being a multi-disciplinary collaboration between manufacturer, architect, contractor, consultant and client. The meeting saw discussion of the ‘real world’ needs of the industry, and showed that many issues remain to be resolved. Whilst the substantial investments are worthwhile, gaining full benefit from BIM will mean full engagement, from suppliers to FM teams – easier said than done.
The Building Products Round Table featured leading manufacturers, architects, contractors, consultants and clients, including David Gillies, Senior Specification Advisor at DORMA, and in doing so echoed the multifaceted collaboration BIM offers. With members of Arup Associates, Balfour Beatty and EC Harris, the discussion focused on all key elements currently under development through the implementation of BIM.
