BIM Day Out Australia

Posted by Holly Allison on Tue, Jul 09, 2013 @ 08:31 AM

What Are You Doing July 18-19?  Hopefully, you’re catching a flight to Perth, Australia, for an amazing line-up of BIM technologies and case studies!


Billed as a BIM festival, the organizers have collected the very best vendors, the very best practitioners, and a whole lot of fun programming.  Designed to be completely hands-on, the event will push past the everyday topics and dig into the real-world examples going on in Australia.


The BIM Day Out is hosted by the Central Institute of Technology Perth with access to their world class facilities.   There are four distinct streams, with morning and afternoon sessions, across the two days.  They are:

Basic BIM; a focus on the essentials to give attendees a good understanding of BIM and what it is and isn’t.

Advanced BIM; showcasing the future, what can be done, what is on the cutting edge of research, software, and education.

Practical BIM; Hands on Labs from Basic to Advanced levels presented by Specialist Industry experts

BIM Demo; Test drive the latest Software guided by Vendor gurus.
