2nd Qatar BIM User Day BIM Technology Outlook


Published on

Speaker: Lionel Lambourn, Gehry Technologies

-New technologies on the horizon
-What can professionals expect from major software vendors in the next few years?

About the Qatar BIM User Day:

Qatar University, HOCHTIEF ViCon and Teesside University proudly take the initiative to facilitate modern and innovative methods in the Gulf construction industry. The focus is Building Information Modeling (BIM), and our aim is to establish a knowledge platform with government, research and industry experts. The User Day aims to help people to share knowledge, discuss new technologies, and identify new potentials for BIM. More information: www.bimuserday.com Follow BUD on Twitter @bimuserday

2nd Qatar BIM User Day BIM Technology Outlook

  1. 1. Outlook for BIM s ie g Presenter: Lionel Lambourn lo o Managing Director n Gehry Technologies ch e T ry h e G 10/2/2012 1 1
  2. 2. Why is this still so hard?! s ie g lo o Good news is… • Every project is different • There are basic commonalities • Don’t know needs in advance • Smart people can work it out • Information is out of sync n h • Limitless information • The cloud • A lot of BIM data isn’t BIM e G ry h c e T • Systems can handle this • Automation to pull info forward i.e. it’s always going to be hard, but it’s not too hard project management + system management + information management 2

  42. 42. Outlook of BIM? A few of many trends… s ie g lo o Scale • Unlimited continuum of data from Urban / Global to Detail Connectedness & convergence • BIM -> GIS, FM, Embedded Systems • Mashup of data/intelligence Collaboration & inclusiveness • Globally distributed concurrent design • BIM for public engagement ry h c e T n h Model intelligence • Self configuring / optimizing / documenting objects • Interoperability on demand • Fault tolerance & indeterminacy mgmt. e G Process Change & Process Controls • Governance and Risk Managment • Formalized vs. Self configuring / organic processes Can we innovate on process as we have on systems design? 43
  43. 43. Future Vision s ie g lo o Things that are changing 5-10 years n h • • The speed of the innovation cycle has arrived in AEC The boxes are being shaken, new roles and organizations are emerging • • Internationalization will create opportunities, in the face of relentless commoditization Production will trend toward zero as a measure of value. • • Convergence of construction and manufacturing Convergence of digital and physical, planned and actual, facility and occupancy systems • The consolidation phase of AEC has begun • Digital expertise will be commodity • Information will represent power, and the potential for authority. e G ry h c e T DFC 44 44
  44. 44. Some things that won’t change Personal relationships will continue to be a central business value s ie g lo o n h The value of reputation and identifiable expertise c e T Professional expertise (architectural, engineering, …) will continue to be required ry h The world will be filled with new, tough problems. There will be value in design, and in innovation e G DFC 45 45
