CPD Newcastle: Putting BIM to work in your practice


“[Building Information Modelling] has disrupted traditional methods of representation and collaboration in architecture” – Michael Bergin, Architecture Research Lab.

Models can be used for many analyses and simulations, but also quantification, to provide the basis of Life Cycle Assessment, costing and construction scheduling, over the whole design and construction process.

Model content and quality become fundamental in this process, and recent case studies will be used to demonstrate downstream uses of models and their upstream value to architects.

Attend this CPD event to hear about leveraging BIM’s benefits and opportunities in your work – from design development and documentation through to workflow – while remaining attentive to its limitations.

Scott Beazley is a trained architect with over 30 years of experience. He is currently working at Mitchell Brandtman, as the Digital Technologies Manager, where his key responsibilities include the export, checking and validation of digital building models for quantification used in estimating (5D cost) and construction scheduling (4D time) software. This is done primarily with Solibri Model Checker using IFC’s.

He also works at the University of Wollongong Sustainable Building Research Centre as a Senior Research Fellow on a cold-formed steel, medium-rise residential archetype building and teaching BIM collaboration.

Scott is a member of buildingSMART Australasia presenting at seminars and is on the SydBIM committee.
