BILT ANZ Program Highlights

With the silly season in full swing here in Australia (silly being crazy busy with everyone trying to finish everything before Christmas), we here at the BILT ANZ committee haven’t been resting.  Our process of finalising the program for the most amazing BILT conference ever continues with speaker acceptance letters having been sent out last week.
We are pleased to be able to share with you the most diverse program yet which we think you will agree has something for everyone interested in BIM and technology in our industry.  Today I’d like to share with you some particular sessions which I have picked out as potential highlights.
Local Adelaide BIM star Luke Johnson of “What Revit Wants” is presenting a lab, Filters Always Win and Other Ways to be Better At Revit as well as a forum: BIM Implementation in Real Life – Horror Story or Success Story?.  We are sure all these sessions will be popular.
If you haven’t yet heard of Autodesk’s Project Fractal prepare to be inspired by where technology is headed. Anthony Hauck from Autodesk will be presenting Generative Design with Project Fractal which has been a very popular class at our past conferences in North America and Europe this year.
Over in the labs, we are excited to be welcoming a few different types of sessions – our first ever labs for Quantity Surveyors and Construction Schedulers are planned (presenters are still to be confirmed)  along with a session to be presented by Richard Taylor from Ideate, which we at the committee are calling “You Suck at Excel”.  We think this session could really add to many peoples skill set.
In the ArchiCAD space, there will be a range of sessions including many that will be of interest generally no matter what your software. One that stands out as it will be presented by the client, is BIM 4 Retail Giants which will be presented by Judith Najee from KMart.
And of course we have plenty of sessions in our traditional revit space.  We have case studies, content creation and plenty of coding. Just a few highlights include Kevin Thickett from Aurecon is running a lab Pipe Dreams, Mark Abrahams from dwp|Suters will compare different family management tools in Your BIM is Only as Good as Your Content and Paul Wintour from BVN will introduce us to Everyday Dynamo.
We also are pleased to announce the return of popular favourites, The Great BIM Debate will debate “That BIM saves Money at Every Project Stage” and the twitterverse will go wild for Got A Problem? Technology?  Culture? What is Next?
The full program will be released and registrations open in January.
We look forward to seeing you in Adelaide next May.
