BIM-MEPAUS Tools and Template Integration

Brendan Upton, Technical Consultant, A2K Technologies
8 August – 8am to 8.45am

This session will cover the main goals and purposes of the recent BIM MEPAUS template development. It will showcase some of the recent additions and upgrades, along with actual feedback from real users in the industry. Learn how the template can aid both Design Consultants and Mechanical Contractors alike, to streamline the process of BIM design to construction.

Topics covered will include:

  • The history behind the development of BIM MEPAUS and its main purposes and goals for the MEP industry
  • Ways the BIM MEPAUS template could be used for setting up new projects or enhancing existing ones
  • How to access the BIM MEPAUS content and materials.

Creating a Collaboration Culture

Paul Arthur, General Manager, Phoenx PLM
7 August – 3.05pm to 3.55pm

Delivering the promised value of BIM is as much about the people as the technology and the processes. However, getting people to collaborate effectively and willingly in an environment where they have been taught to compete is a major challenge.

Human history is built on collaboration for the greater good of the group, and in this session we will look at some examples of the ways you can leverage this. Spending just 30 minutes thinking about the people not just as resources but as people, rather than focusing on technology and processes, might be the most valuable thing you can do for the future success of your projects.

Engineering Transformation Governance

JC Davis, Senior Solutions Consultant, A2K Technologies
7 August – 8am to 8.45am

In this presentation JC Davis will elaborate on his recent white paper, ‘Engineering Transformation Governance: Responding to Change’.  This paper defines best practice guidelines to assist engineering firms approach change in a way that realises maximum adoption, business benefit, and initiative success, via a true governance system. It explores three types of governance to achieve this: Corporate Governance, Engineering (or Project) Governance, and Transformation Governance, with practical implications for success in their adoption.

JC will also share his thoughts, experiences and observations gleaned from 25 plus years’ industry experience in design, engineering, management and thought leadership initiatives.
