KPF Joined by HOK, Ordnance Survey and Unit9 for Third British Information Modelling Event


London, 12 April 2017 – The third British Information Modelling event will take place on 11th May 2017 and is hosted by international architectural practice KPF at their London headquarters.  Bringing together innovators and experts from across the Building Information Modelling (BIM) sector the latest seminar will feature speakers from the UK government’s innovation agency, Emmy Award winning production studio Unit 9, and the largest American architecture-engineering company HOK.

The British Information Modelling seminar and open panel discussion will look at how the UK BIM strategy is developing with an update from Innovate UK on BIM Level 3 and on how practitioners and end clients are implementing BIM projects with perspectives from KPF and HOK.

The early evening event is organised by 3D Repo, the company behind multi-award winning technology that allows complex BIM datasets from multiple sources to be stored and easily accessed anywhere via the web.  The event will also feature talks on the latest innovation for the industry from Ordnance Survey, Unit 9 and UtterBerry the developers of intelligent wireless sensor systems that are helping construction company’s remotely monitor infrastructure projects.

“Previous events have attracted a high calibre of delegates from across the construction sector and with such a prestigious line up of speakers and contributing organisations, and a limited number of places, we expect this event to fill up fast,” commented 3D Repo’s CEO Dr Jozef Dobos.  ”Therefore we strongly recommend that anyone interested in attending reserves their place quickly.”

British Information Modelling takes place at 18h30 to 21h00 on 11th May 2017 at KPF’s headquarters, Langley Street, London.  The event is free of charge and places will be offered to qualifying professionals on a first come first serve basis at the following link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/british-information-modelling-tickets-33491572194?aff=Pressrelease

Notes to Editors

3D Repo, a spinout from University College London, is a multi-award winning company offering a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform for Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the cloud. Instead of architects, consultants and contractors sharing massive proprietary files in a costly and time consuming manner, they can simply point their web browser to an encrypted knowledge base in order to examine each project stage virtually, even on mobile devices.

With 3D Repo, users can then manage model revisions and highlight potential issues using live collaboration tools, which allow the whole project team to work from a single source of truth. More than 40 different 3D file formats are decomposed and federated in the company’s big data repository. Additionally the project knowledge base can be accessed via VR giving a live experience which has applications in Health and Safety training and client experiences.

The 3D Repo team has collaborated on a number of large scale projects with companies such as ARUP, Balfour Beatty, Skanska, Crossrail and Canary Wharf. http://3drepo.org/
