Join us on 8th June 2021 for the ‘How to Reduce Risk Through Better Information Management’ event; a morning webinar and two afternoon workshops.
BIM in Housing was established in 2018 as an interactive workshop that brings together developers/owners from Local Authorities and Housing Associations and their supply chains to understand the issues they are encountering, how Better Information Management (BIM) can help and provide practical tips and advice.
For the first part of this event, our panel of BIM experts will host a webinar to provide legal guidance on complying with the Building Safety Bill and Fire Safety Bill as a Building Owner. The speakers will also discuss the technologies that are up and coming to record information, the standard data templates everyone can use and how the digital workflow evolution can improve design, quality, safety and delivery of them.
BIMinHousing events have always been about participation so in the afternoon we invite attendees to join two interactive roundtable workshops, focusing on identifying:
• Risk to life: fire, health, structural;
• Risk to property: water leaks, security, lifts and;
• Risk to occupation: heating & electricity failure.
The first workshop will focus on each of these three topics from an operational perspective, led by George Stevenson, covering actions and critical time-lines. Click here for more information.
The second workshop will focus on each of these three topics from a design perspective led by Andrew de Silva ‘Das’. The workshop will cover how those risks might be designed out and, where that isn’t possible, how designers and contractors can ensure the information that is required by the operations team to D’Risk the schemes is available.

Please join us to share your experience and learn from colleagues.

10.00 – 10.10 | Opening, Schedule of the Day
10.10 – 10.25 | Key requirements of Building Safety Bill and Fire Safety Bill
Using case study examples, Kathryn Kligerman, Devonshires, will provide legal guidance on complying with the Building Safety Bill and Fire Safety Bill as a Building Owner. Kathryn will highlight the contractual amendments you may wish to consider bringing into your own contracts, to ensure you can comply with the statutory requirements and share with you how clients are dealing with investigations, their learnings and the benefits of ‘Better Information Management” in light of the impending legislative changes.
10.25 – 10.45 | Better Information Management
Mark Pratten, Airey Miller, will be discussing BIM in the context of “Better Information Management” and will be asking why there is a need, what can be done to deliver Better Information management through the pre-construction design stage and what technologies are up and coming to record information.
10.45 – 10.55 | Break
10.55 – 11.20 | Guest Speaker – James Banner from Orbit
Orbit began their BIM journey nearly five years ago with their primary focus being on asset information. The lessons from this experience have been invaluable, providing insight into the practical application of BIM, not as a tool to aid construction, but in relation to asset management.
James’ presentation will cover Orbit’s BIM journey to date, the challenges experienced so far and those we still have to overcome. James will also talk about what Orbit are currently doing and why, the need for a standardised approach in the sector, why accurate up to date asset information is more important now than ever before, and why BIM?
11.20 – 11.35 | “What Information do I need to satisfy the Golden Thread?”
George Stevenson, Activeplan – Chair of BIM4Housing and the Asset/Survey Information Working Group of the L&G/MHGCL Golden Thread Initiative will explain current progress in defining Information Requirements and show the work being done by the HACT-led Housing Association Data Group to provide standard data templates everyone can use.
11.35 – 11.50 | 7 projects, 5 years and a digital workflow evolution
Using 7 live housing projects, Das will discuss how David Miller Architects have evolved their digital workflows to improve design, quality, safety and delivery of them, over the last 5 years.
