Enhancing the digital construction process for Africa
Concrete.TV recently spoke to the BIM Institute for Africa’s Executive Director, Vaughan Harris, about the importance of Building Information Modeling (BIM) towards digital construction.
The BIM Institute’s mission is to support and help deliver the standards and requirements of the Building Information Modelling (BIM) strategy for Africa and promote the processes and standards required to strengthen Africa’s construction software industry. The Institute also serves as Africa’s business voice for the education community and owners who are working collectively with all information technologies in a construction management environment.
“We provide our members with protocols, knowledge and best practices for information technology solutions in an African context while maintaining connectivity with our international partners”. “Our primary engagement with our partners and affiliated members is through media and events in order to address their needs as we move toward developing and improving industry solutions on BIM for Africa”.
The BIM Institute is the presenting sponsor to the exclusive Construction IT Summit and Expo taking place at the Midrand Conference Centre, Johannesburg on the 10 – 11 May 2016.
The Construction IT Summit and Expo is THE ONLY practical platform offering vendors and solution providers access to the entire construction IT lifecycle. The audience includes public and private sector participants such as architects, estimators, planner’s project owners, engineers, IT professionals, facility managers, government representatives, who are driving the regions’ built environment.
This unique setting allows for prestigious visibility, interactive networking and on-site information technology demonstrations.
