bimK® at the 2nd Edition of the PTBIM Congress

On 17th and 18th May 2018, several members of bimK® will attend the 2nd edition of the Portuguese BIM Congress (ptBIM) in the Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon. The event is organized by universities (Minho, Porto and Lisbon) with the support of the IMPIC (Instituto dos Mercados Públicos, do Imobiliário e da Construção), the Ordem dos Engenheiros and the Ordem dos Arquitectos. It aims “to promote a forum for technical and scientific discussion in Portuguese, involving the active participation of professional and academic communities in the areas of Architecture and Engineering”.

BIM promotes the use of digital representation in construction and is introducing significant changes in the architecture, engineering and project management areas. It involves new working methods with several teams and stakeholders and raises new questions on how to manage projects. A first edition of the PTBIM Congress took place in November 2016 in Guimarães and gathered around 200 participants, leading to the publication of 52 articles on BIM technologies. After such a success, this new edition will focus on “the efforts and problems encountered by the industry for BIM implementation” and aims “to strengthen professional networks that incorporate BIM practices in their activities” and “to share experiences, good practices and knowledge for a more consistent use of BIM methods in the building industry”.

The congress will mainly deal with the topics of BIM implementation and procedures, interoperability and collaboration, use in architecture and engineering projects, in building and in operations and maintenance, software, sustainability, heritage site and training, with a special focus on national implementation and normalization during a round table on the 17th. The meeting will close on the 18th with the prize giving of the Prémio Dissertação ptBIM in Engineering and Architecture, awarding the best works on BIM methodology.

Don't miss the event and speak with our bimK® team. We will be happy to answer your questions.
