After a year of uncertainty, the BIM in Birmingham 2022 event is set to explore a series exciting talks and presentations that will engage attendees and speakers. The conference offers topical discussions around Building Information Modelling, which has been refreshed for this year's festivities!

Event themes include:

  1. Share a project with us - would you share an interesting project with us?
  2. BIM + climate change - how is your practice utilising BIM to support the fight against climate change?
  3. BIM + Covid crisis - how has your practice utilised BIM through the Covid crisis?

As in previous years, the BIM events continue to seek out new participants and encourage attendance from students, designers, architects, BIM specialists, practitioners, and various sized practices. All are welcome to both attend and take part in the presentations.

The BIM in Birmingham series of events is partnered by the aae (association of architectural educators) and with this in mind, we welcome schools of architecture from across the country together with local, national, and international practitioners with whom we will exchange knowledge and learning about Building Information Modelling. If you are an academic or student from a school of architecture and would like a group of students to attend or take part, please get in touch.
