Colonel BIM - Richard Currie - Oldfield Knott Architects

  • Richard Currie is a Senior Architect and BIM manager at Oldfield Knott Architects with over 25 years experience in the AEC industry. Richard believes that many aspects of BIM can be used on all projects, regardless of size. He will demonstrate the BIM workflows and varying platforms used to procure a new fast food outlet in Jandakot. This will be an honest account of struggles, frustrations and successes in a fast-paced and complex commercial environment. The lasting message is "If you don't ask, you don't get".

Bridging BIM: OpenBIM for the Revit user. - Ario Susanto - Hassell

  • In 2003, Ario Susanto did a thesis on Interoperability in the AEC Industry at the UNSW, Sydney. It was early days when IAI’s IFC just started getting traction. A decade later, interoperability is still a major item on the BIM development wish lists around the world. For us in Perth, working on projects overseas especially South East Asia, working on a non-proprietary method of exchange has become a necessity. This segment will explore what it means to work in an OpenBIM environment for Revit users who enjoy a single platform interface between disciplines. Ario will share current development around the region on interoperability, followed by examples from past projects and workshops he ran in Malaysia and Indonesia.
