8:30 AM - 9:20 AM
Registration, refreshments and networking
9:20 AM - 9:30 AM
Morning welcome from the conference chair
9:30 AM - 9:50 AM
Opening Keynote by The Scottish Government
The role of BIM within construction procurement & performance. The success of BIM and how it can be integrated with other national challenges and opportunities.
9:50 AM - 10:10 AM
The vision & journey to tomorrows digital infrastructure
Charting the achievements, analysing the findings, and mapping the themes for the future of BIM in Scotland. 
10:10 AM - 10:30 AM
‘Facilitating the digital transformation of the Built Environment – The Journey so far’
The UK BIM Alliance formed in 2016 and now has a key role in driving digital transformation.  Anne Kemp will share how the Alliance formed, what it has delivered so far, who they work with and the plans going forward.  With the Alliance now being the UK&I chapter of buildingSMART and merged with the BIM Technology Group there is a lot of information to share with you.
10:30 AM - 10:50 AM
The future is bright.. and complex
Where will BIM sit in a world of blockchain, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and quantum computing? 
10:50 AM - 11:00 AM
Questions from the audience
11:00 AM - 11:20 AM
Networking & Refreshments
Session 2 - Interactive masterclasses & workshops
11:20 AM - 11:50 AM
Collaborative reality capture for BIM

The masterclass session will introduce a range of reality capture devices that can be used in day to day tasks by non-specialised personnel which allow easy data capture and processing techniques to quickly and easily share data which can be added with inventory or condition information, geo-tagged, web-based viewing or turned into the basis for VR training or inspection.

We’ll demonstrate how easy it is to capture, convert and then use this data in day to day tasks within the BIM environment. Showcasing how through using these technologies you can unlock massive benefits in the way we visualise and interact with BIM and the digital twin to allow a true collaborative approach on projects, reducing existing overheads whilst consuming the same single dataset.

Further information coming soon. 
11:50 AM - 11:55 AM
5 minute transition
11:55 AM - 12:25 PM
Harnessing the power of Point Clouds
The use of laser scanning technology has quickly become the staple starting point for digital project workflows. However the techniques used for data capture can vary dramatically and the methods used for data extraction often do not harness the full potential of this powerful technology. This session will focus on built modelling and construction verification using point clouds, using the latest software developments to enable maximum use of the laser scans collected on your project.
Leveraging Digital Technology to Streamline BIM in the Field

This session, hosted by PlanGrid, an Autodesk company, will examine how digital technology improves collaboration on construction projects, by offering a seamless and powerful integration into BIM, Revit and other applications. 

Taking real life examples we'll outline how digital technology helps create one single source of truth which improves real time communication, enhances the workflow process and removes the disconnect and confusion that can exist between BIM and the field.  

12:25 PM - 1:15 PM
Lunch, Exhibition & Networking
Session 3 - Showcasing best practice & practical examples
1:15 PM - 1:35 PM
Case Study – Use of digital technology to successfully deliver the V&A project at Dundee.
The buildings complex form and method of construction meant that the use of digital tools was vital to allow us to overcome the construction challenges to successfully achieve the clients visions for the project which was delivered on budget and on time.
1:35 PM - 1:50 PM
Case Study - Edinburgh St James is currently one of the most significant regeneration projects taking place in Europe
Utilising a Common Data Environment and BIM work-flows to transition from Design Intent, to Specialist Subcontractors Developed Design proposals, ultimately driving an offsite manufacturing process from a single dataset.
1:50 PM - 2:05 PM
Case Study - BIM for digital asset management in Scotland’s public sector.
Tailored BIM strategies for Health Facilities Scotland (HFS) and a new Hub South East secondary school which will deliver digital asset information for operational maintenance and lifecycle management.
2:05 PM - 2:20 PM
Case Study- Integrating lessons learnt from trial level 2 projects
Delivering Level 2 can seem to be daunting, this case study looks at the West Calder High School trial Level 2 project. Exploring how to deliver usable FM date, successful outcomes and taking simple steps into future projects.
2:20 PM - 2:30 PM
Questions from the audience
2:30 PM - 2:45 PM
Networking & Refreshments
Session 4 - The future of BIM Scotland
2:45 PM - 3:00 PM
If buildings could compute
What if our urban and architectural built environment could communicate, understand us or give feedback? What if the walls surrounding us were not only structurally and climatically relevant, but had new functions; sensing, actuating, calculating, processing, producing power, storing data and learning?
3:00 PM - 3:45 PM
Expert Panel & Interactive Discussions
Our expert panel will disseminate the challenges and opportunities for the future, explore the outcomes of the conference and open the discussion with delegate interaction
3:45 PM - 3:50 PM
