The Future Infrastructure Summit is visiting two Australian cities this month, Melbourne and Brisbane.

The Summit offers an extensive and insightful programme, designed to bring together real-life practitioners from across the country in order to inspire, educate and expand networks – all focused on digital engineering.

Hosted by buildingSMART Australasia and Lean Construction ANZ, the Summit will span two days in each location.

Day 1 will see TED talks, workshops and panel discussions from over 40 industry leading experts within the Australian infrastructure and construction sectors on the application of Digital Engineering, BIM, Lean and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

Day 2 will feature a series of training sessions from the likes of Geometry GymAutodeskBentleydRofusReviztositemobi and, of course, us among others.

Our very own Digital Node team and all-round BIM gurus will be taking part in both locations for the Summit, offering valuable insight into working practices for the application of BIM in Australia.

Our BIM 101 session will look at how to successfully use digital information on projects, and the principles of BIM Management in line with ISO 19650.

This session will introduce summit attendees to the core processes and principles of BIM in line with the international standard ISO 19650. Rebecca De Cicco commented: “My BIM 101 session is the basic principles needed to begin your BIM adoption journey.”

“This Summit is truly exceptional and is an excellent opportunity for professionals in both sectors to come together to deepen their understanding of how to not only implement digital process, but why it is needed.”

We will also be delivering a BIM 102 workshop, which follows on from the basic principles to why we need them and practical implementation processes.

Rebecca added: “This session is aimed at those who have a sound understanding of BIM and have already applied the principles of BIM to some of their projects. We will look at what key documents are needed to align to the international framework in order for companies to work consistently, regardless of where in the world their projects are located.”

The Future Infrastructure Summit is taking place on Tuesday 24 and Wednesday 24 October in Melbourne and Monday 28 and Tuesday 29 October in Brisbane.
