Spotlight Session: Is it time to throw your 2D Asbestos plans in the BIM?
Is it time to throw your 2d Asbestos Plans in the BIM?
By Matthew Chalmers, Lucion Services
10.10-10.50 & repeated 11.20am-12.00
Many people incorrectly presume that BIM is only relevant to architects, or that it’s just a design tool for new builds. Whilst the software is similar to CAD, it’s important to understand that that particular element of the technology only scratches the surface of its capabilities. The most impressive aspect of BIM is the middle letter – the information which it can provide to users. It doesn’t just provide a visually pleasing, high-tech model of a building for people to look at; it helps asbestos managers and health & safety teams with scheduling and prioritising workloads based on the risk category of a hazard such as asbestos containing materials or legionella.
As the cost of the software that enables BIM continues to reduce, such as cloud-based services, the number of businesses and contractors now using these systems as standard is expected to rise even higher in 2019.
In this session delegates will gain an understanding of the different benefits both 2d & 3d plans have when managing asbestos and other health & safety risks within their assets and property portfolios. This seminar will also enable delegates to consider ways in which budgets and resource are currently being allocated within their organisation using less modern risk management systems and processes.
The session is ideally suited for those who not only manage asbestos but the wider risk management hazards such as Facilities teams, health and safety teams, estates managers and procurement professionals.
