FIS Digital Construction Working Group - Spring 2021

The last meeting of the FIS Digital Construction Working Group featured presentations introducing the FIS Digital Spine, an update from the UK BIM Alliance, A Practical Look at how BIM is impacting the Finishes and Interiors Sector and a wider look at the technology that is shaping the Finishes and Interiors Sector.

The FIS Digital Spine, digitalisation at the heart of transformation, Iain McIlwee, CEO FIS
Iain introduces the FIS Digital Spine and takes a step back and look at some of drivers to Digitalise including the Construction Playbook (the new guidance tool to support Government procurement) and how these are likely to add to the business case and help to drive change in the sector.   Iain also looks at some of the training and support out there to help you to embark or take the next step on your own digitalisation process.

BIM Update –Duncan Reed, Ambassador, UK BIM Alliance
The UK BIM Alliance is a group (of which FIS is an active member) established to support the built environment through the process of digital transformation.  Duncan will draw upon the results of the recent BIM State of the Nation Survey to look at where and how BIM is impacting construction and what we can expect from the next 12 months and will introduce some of the support and resources available through the UK BIM Alliance.

Is BIM having an impact in the Finishes and Interiors Sector? What next? – Duncan Reed, Construction Process Manager, Trimble

As well as working with the UK BIM Alliance, Duncan Trimble is Digital Construction Process Manager at Trimble.  For this presentation he switches hats and starts to give a practical introduction to how BIM is starting to impact day to day work in the Finishes and Interiors Sector and how things are likely to progress in the next few years.

Where technology is shaping our sector – Dave Bradbury, R&D Manager, ISG
David talks through the technologies emerging that are helping to reshape the Finishes and Interiors Sector and highlights some of the opportunities and challenges we will face as a sector.
