Details :
  1. Being one of the most advanced design software tool, Architect or designer could not only use BIM to build up 3D model, produce layout plan and section but also create walkthrough animations and 3D rendering as well as other advanced design stimulations. Through merging the design practice with BIM, more innovative, dynamic and 3-dimensional design could be created. The speaker will share his practical experience on how BIM could benefit the design development process and overall design management.


  1. This presentation will discuss how Building Information Modelling (BIM) for design & construction of smart buildings can be applied in the development of a Smart City. As the cost of hardware falls and complexity gets shifted to the cloud, a network built on BIM and GIS data has the potential to become the infrastructure on which the ‘internet of things’ runs. In some cases, sensors are being connected to devices whose performance can be tracked and analyzed. Applying Smart BIM will enable new insights into building or city performance for our better future.
