4:00 pm Event Introduction

4:05 pm Session 1 – The Queensland State Velodrome: Form and Structure through parametric design


Speaker: Alex Leese, Cox Rayner Architects

This talk is a case study of the development of the Queensland State Velodrome and in particular the use of parametric modelling techniques throughout the development of the architectural form, structural geometry, structural analysis and finally shop drawing process. The complex form and tight program demanded a flexible approach to this design process. The use of Grasshopper ensured accurate communication across the consultant team throughout the detailed design process, where possible through a single source of information.


4:45 pm Session 2 – OpenBIM: The shape of things to come

Geometry Gym

Speaker: Jon MirtschinGeometry Gym

OpenBIM is more than just coordination models and archiving. This presentation will demonstrate cutting edge application of the IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) framework to enable model transfer for projects around the world. Demonstration will include the iconic Abdul-Aziz Centre for World Culture cladding steel fabrication and model transfer from Grasshopper to BIM software using IFC4.


5:25 pm Session 3 – An Operational Perspective – 567 Collins Street


Speaker: Nathan Lyon, Investa 

Since the completion of The Ark (40 Mount St, Sydney) in 2010, Investa has understood the value of BIM as a construction tool for their new developments. 567 Collins St was seen as an opportunity to evolve the BIM process further, by prescribing data and geometry requirements for use by the Investa Operations team. This presentation will unpack some of the experiences of this journey, provide an update as to where our lofty aspirations have landed, and show in practical terms how this vision has been adopted across future developments and existing building stock within the broader Investa business.
