Join us for the Second Annual GIS BIM Conference, where high level speakers will explore the role of GIS in the BIM lifecycle and how location is playing a pivotal role at their organisation.

Location technology is disrupting the engineering and construction industry, creating new efficiencies and time savings across all phases of the BIM (building Information Modelling) Lifecycle. Discover the benefits of using GIS (Geographic Information Systems) for Geodesign, Planning, Construction, Operations, Logistics Management, Modelling and forecasting, collaboration and data visualisation.

Arcadis: Understanding Geography in the Design Environment

Tunnelling the Thames - Lower Thames Crossing will be a bored tunnel crossing under the River Thames east of Gravesend and Tilbury. The new crossing will offer improved journeys, new connections and network reliability. To enable design in this complex location integration between GIS and the design environment is required to ensure a single source of truth of information that can be generated once and consumed across multiple platforms available to the project. The Lower Thames Crossing Information Management (GIS & BIM team) are developing smart solutions, educating users and implementing technology that will enable this to happen on the project reducing duplication, risk and data management for the project.

Peter Brett Associates: Using GIS in a BIM compliant Building Survey

Peter Brett Associates have adopted the use of ArcGIS Collector and ArcGIS online to dynamically interpret multilevel building surveys from within our office whilst the survey team are still onsite. The interactive and instant results that collector provides allows PBA’s Multidisciplinary teams the possibility to undertake one survey for multiple teams and ensure crucial information is not lost. Peter Brett Associates also then deliver the interactive map through their own portal to ArcGIS online so that multiple teams from multiple companies can also use and benefit from this data the instant it is collected (and ensuring they can maximise the one survey rather than undertaking their own as well).

Speaker: David Roberts-Lock

13:50 - 14:10:
