18:00 – Virtualisation for AEC : Joe Banks (National BIM Manager, Nettleton Tribe)
The intent is to improve the understanding of virtualisation and allow you to make an informed decision about the systems involved. Joe will be presenting on how virtualisation works, what are the benefits and drawbacks of moving to VDI (Virtual Desktop infrastructure) and how the cost analysis works.
Joe has been working in the architectural industry since 2002 and with Revit since version 8 (2005), he has worked on Revit projects from $50k-$900Million and have been responsible for BIM projects up to LOD 500, 4D and 5D. Additionally he has completed multiple practice Revit implementations and the training of over 200 users.
18:25 – Linking BIM to FM – What’s holding us back and how do we make it happen! : Dominik Holzer (Owner, AEC Connect Australia)
There is no doubt that designers and contractors are increasingly asked to deliver “FM ready BIM”. Whilst such a request is becoming a standard deliverable on medium-to large scale projects (in particular within the public sector), the mechanisms for achieving a meaningful BIM to FM transition (that adds value to the client) often remain obscured.
With his consultancy AEC Connect, Dr Dominik Holzer has been working on this issue for the past 5+ years and he recently undertook an in-depth study on this topic at the University of Melbourne via a VIC government-funded research project. At MelBIM he will shed a light on what the main issues in the BIM to FM transition are and discuss how to overcome them.
Dr Dominik Holzer is a Design Technology specialist who works with a great number of stakeholders within the Design/Construction and FM industries. His expertise lies in the application of high-end technology and collaborative processes for the intelligent management of information across the supply chain and the life-cycle of projects. He applies his knowledge as a consultant via AEC Connect where he advises architects, engineers, contractors, client representatives, as well as educational institutions on strategies for implementing Design Technology (such as BIM) within their organisation and training programs.
Next to numerous publications in industry and academic journals, Dominik has published the ‘BIM Manager’s Handbook” in 2016; he currently works on his second book titled: Design Technology in Contemporary Practice.
18:50 – BIM 360 Design – Revit Cloud Collaboration with Confidence : Deepak Maini (National Technical Manager – Named Accounts, Cadgroup)
BIM 360 Design for Revit cloud collaboration has fundamentally changed the way the architecture, engineering, and construction industry works on complex projects that require collaborative workflows. In this presentation, you will see how BIM 360 Design, the new avatar of Collaboration for Revit (C4R), allows multiple stakeholders to collaboratively work on a project using Revit cloud worksharing.
Deepak is a qualified Mechanical Engineer with 19 years’ industry experience, currently working with Cadgroup Australia as their National Technical Manager. He is the author of the “Up and Running with Autodesk Navisworks” and “Up and Running with Autodesk Advance Steel” series of books. Deepak was awarded the “Best Speaker” in the Instructional Demo category at Autodesk University 2017 in Las Vegas and has been among the top speakers at various BILT conferences in Asia and ANZ regions. Deepak is also an “Autodesk Expert Elite” a coveted title awarded to the top Autodesk experts around the world.
