The Autumn Lecture 2014

27 October 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Leadenhall Building under construction Building Information Modelling – Laing O’Rourke – Build Virtually – Build in Reality

Monday 27th October at 19:00 at Glasgow University.

Building Information Modelling – a highly sophisticated integration of software which creates a visual representation of a construction project prior to the physical build – Sean Termansen of Laing O’Rourke will present on BIM at our Autumn Lecture, kindly hosted by Professor John Marsh, Head of School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow.

Sean will provide an overview of BIM, illustrating with case studies how Laing O’Rourke implements it – simulating in a virtual environment the complete structure in advance of construction – in order to achieve huge efficiencies in design and construction, cost savings and quality assurance. He will outline how, by integrating the scheduling information, all the architects, mechanical and structural engineers and landscapers etc. can operate with ultimate efficiency, reducing operational and management costs on any project. This leads to greater predictability, improved health & safety, reduced waste and ultimately, greater corporate competitiveness and performance and increased client satisfaction.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) was recently used in the construction of the Leadenhall Building in London (pictured), among others.

The 2014 Autumn Lecture is Engineering Scotland’s first – the introduction and welcome will be given by Professor John Marsh and there will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end. The Lecture is free but places are limited. Please register at our Eventbrite page for the event. Early registration is advised as the Lecture is expected to be very popular.

The Lecture will take place on Monday 27th October at 19:00 at the Stevenson Lecture Theatre (Room 354) James Watt South Building, The University of Glasgow, G12 8QQ.

Please join us at 18:30 to enjoy light refreshments.
