DUBAI, United Arab Emirates & DOHA, Qatar--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Data rich, three-dimensional modeling tools are fundamentally changing the way building projects are planned, designed, fabricated, built and maintained. The Turner Innovation conferences in the United Arab Emirates and Doha, Qatar on 27 October, 29 October and 31 of October presents a unique opportunity for industry peers to explore the practical uses, challenges and opportunities that Building Information Modeling offers across the life-cycle of a building program.
A Building Information Model, or BIM, is a three-dimensional, virtual representation of a building, which is linked to data sources that contain valuable information about that building’s systems. BIM means project teams essentially build twice; first on the computer and then on a construction site. BIM is rapidly improving the environment for communication and collaboration; speeding project completion, lowering costs and improving overall quality at the same time.
The Turner Innovation conference offers an opportunity for attendees to gain practical advice and lessons learned from a wide-range of BIM experts. The conference brings together building owners, architects, engineers, general contractors, and trade contractors looking to collaborate and increase their impact on the built environment. The knowledge and insight gained in this conference will prepare attendees to leverage the use of BIM and differentiate themselves in a competitive marketplace.
In addition, the conference will feature technology demonstrations from leaders in the development of cutting-edge solutions for the building industry.
