BIM academy is a reviewer at RAE2016

We are happy to announce that one of the CEO’s and Founders of BIM Academy, Dr. Ignasi Pérez Arnal, will be a member or the Scientific Committee for the International Conference entitled: “Rethinking Architectural Education:  Towards a Better Practice”. This conference is organized by RAE2016, the first International Conference on Architectural Education that will take place on Beirut between de 9th and 11th of March 2016.

The aim

The aim of RAE2016 is to discuss and exchange experiences on educational innovation in undergraduate and postgraduate studies in architecture and urbanism. The conference seeks to instill in graduates the necessary skills and knowledges for working and improving their practice.

The theme is based on the debate between two important environments: the academic and the professional. The link between learning methodologies and the consolidation of knowledge of the discipline that students develop throughout their studies must be contrasted with:

  • the professional practice of architects
  • the job market and
  • the socio-economic context in which our society is involved.

So we will discuss the educational methodologies and its effectiveness in order to ensure an adequate traineeship which will allow the future architect to adequately address the challenges posed by society. Can check the schedule for further details.

 

Towards a better practice

Dr. Pérez Arnal teaches BIM to different degrees: technical architects, civil engineers, construction professionals and recently also has created a specific course for managers and executives. So Arnal taught one of the speakers of RAE, Marwan Halabi, an assistant Professor at the Faculty of Architectural Engineering at Beirut Arab University.

And Ignasi says about him: “It is a pleasure to a good teacher see how a good alumnus overcomes him. Marwan Halabi came to collaborate on many of our projects when he was one of the few people who knew how to parameterize a territory and how to make visualizations of spaces with Rhino and Grasshopper.- and Arnal adds: Now the pleasure is ours to be one of the reviewers of RAE2016″.

WITS Institute and BIM Academy will take the chance to be present and help work this possible marriage on that event that will discuss one of the most important themes of architectural culture: how this art/science/technology should be taught in order to be learned in the best possible way.

It is about gathering a bond that has been unleashed for a long time: the union between Academia and Profession.

 

 

 

European BIM Summit 2016: momento de compartir conocimiento

El 18 y 19 de febrero de 2016 se celebrará en Barcelona, concretamente en el edificio World Trade Center, la segunda edición del European BIM Summit, la cumbre europea sobre BIM. Es un evento organizado por el Colegio de Aparejadores, Arquitectos Técnicos e Ingenieros de Edificación de Barcelona, CAATEEB, por BIM Academy (patrocinado por WITS) y por BuildingSmart, tres organismos que han sumado esfuerzos hacia un mismo objetivo: ofrecer las herramientas necesarias a los profesionales del sector de Arquitectura, Ingeniería y Construcción, AIC, y poder compartir conocimiento sobre la tecnología BIM.

BIM, es decir, Building Information Modeling, es una metodología de trabajo colaborativa que permite tener un mayor control sobre el proyecto, reducir el coste y el tiempo de la construcción, incrementar la eficiencia, visualizar en 3D, coordinar y mejorar la comunicación entre los agentes, porque  todos intervienen sobre el mismo modelo. Por todo ello, se ha convertido en una demanda internacional y se prevé que antes de 2020 sea normativamente obligatorio entregar proyectos en formato BIM.

Conscientes de que esta revolución tecnológica está cambiando nuestra forma de trabajar, creemos que es enriquecedor compartir el conocimiento, experiencias y opiniones para seguir avanzando juntos en su aplicación. European BIM Summit 2016, como su nombre indica, tiene un enfoque internacional. Es una reunión abierta entre instituciones y grupos de profesionales que representan el estado de BIM en la industria de la construcción y que analizarán su estado de aplicación para que juntos alcancemos nuevos hitos. Inscríbete aquí.

La cumbre hospedará asistentes de todo el mundo y de todos los sectores: asociaciones, managers, consultores, profesionales… y hará de punto de encuentro entre ellos. Se convertirá en el sitio perfecto para conocer personas y hacer networking. “Networking no es coleccionar contactos. Se trata de cultivar relaciones.” (Misha.at).

¿Quién asistirá?

  • Instituciones estratégicas que contribuyen a la globalización de BIM (AEEBC, RICS, EFIC…)
  • Representantes de la industria, fabricantes de productos y software BIM
  • Equilibrio entre especialidades, disciplinas y entornos
  • Momentos de intercambio continuo a través de reuniones, workshops experienciales, aprovechamiento de los technical cocktails y los breaks con actividades dirigidas
  • Match-making entre los tres vértices del BIM: el mundo académico-universitario y de investigación, los entes públicos y profesionales, y los productores y usuarios a través de badges interactivos

¿Qué pasará durante la cumbre? Experiencias y debates sobre BIM directos y aplicables

  • Sesiones plenarias de ponencias, workshops, visitas, nuevos servicios y nuevas empresas en torno al BIM
  • 3 conferenciantes de primer nivel por sesión, todos ellos referente profesionales en su campo
  • Case studies paradigmáticos y workshops de aplicaciones (constructoras, softwares…)
  • Manos a la obra: Herramientas precisas para redirigir su estudio, despacho, empresa, administración y sus modelos de producción (hands-on)
  • Una smart city necesita smarts buildings construidos de manera eficiente. Los nuevos smart building engineers, a través de la industria, los mantenedores, los project managers, directores de estudios, jefes de obra, instituciones que validan, que certifican, que ayudan, promotores, real estate – todos están invitados

EUROPEAN BIM SUMMIT

The CAATEEB and BIM Academy® (powered by WITS Institute) announce the first European Summit on Building Information Modeling (BIM) to be held in Barcelona in February 2015

In January 2014, the European Parliament voted to modernize public tendering and procurement rules, recommending the use of electronic tools like BIM for projects and open design contests. This recommendation comes to mean a boost for the construction industry as a whole: since the use of these new tools preparing projects, that means a new way to manage and monitor the construction process and throughout the useful life of the buildings.

What is BIM? Under these acronyms system called the Building Information Modeling (BIM), which becomes a new approach in the process of building cycle: from project conception and design, analysis, and documentation related to the architecture and engineering management , it’s revolutionizing the way we conceive new projects and works and the analysis of the existing ones.

The surveyors, the building engineers  and professionals covering a wide range of functions throughout the cycle of the building,  must learn to work with this new technology, but it is now emerging, and sooner than we think, will be a prerequisite to work for certain customers, beginning with the administration.

 

TECHNOLOGICAL REVOLUTION

Aware of what this technological revolution will change the way we work, we believe it is time to share the knowledge that exists about this new advanced technology and learn together in an open meeting different disciplines, institutions and professional groups that represent the state of the art of BIM in the construction industry. The event will have an international approach at what point is the use of this technology in all the neighboring countries and advance together in their application.

Thus was born the Barcelona 2015 European BIM  Summit, an international summit designed to show knowledge, and share it. The first edition will be held on 12 and 13 February 2015 in Barcelona and will consist on lectures, workshops, tours, services and companies in the field of BIM. It is aimed at specialists and public authorities, developers, architectural firms, engineering firms, consulting services, material suppliers, project & construction managers, Works’ managers’ and facility managers, among others.

We are going to present relevant experiences and  displayed the latest developments and deployments to improve the quality, efficiency and effectiveness in any Building project. European BIM Summit in Barcelona in 2015 will represent  for all participants the opportunity to reflect about the Construction Sector and its processes and advocate for necessary change.
