4:45 pm Session 2 – BIM+FM Case Study: Sydney Opera House BIM Interface Project


Speaker: Chris Needham, AECOM

The potential BIM promises toward improved Asset Management and Facility Management is widely touted, but rarely in any great detail. This presentation will focus on a case study: the Sydney Opera House, with its ‘BIM+FM Interface’ project. This is a world-renowned architectural icon, set to benefit from extensive use of multiple data sources integrated with an as-built model of the building – all while juggling multiple improvement projects.

Hear about real-world projects with real-world problems and real-world solutions. Topics to be covered will include as-built model specifications, data schema, database integration, information use cases and more. Learn more about the role of middleware in information integration, and the challenges that brings.

5:25 pm Session 3 – Real Time Rendering and VR for your BIM
