UK BIM Alliance
Anne Kemp, Director at Atkins, BIM Strategy and Development,
Driven by legislation as well as current and emerging technologies, the BIM revolution is advancing across the construction industry, with the UK a world exemplar. The session will examine the key role of geospatial in creating effective and deliverable information models that reduce risk and inform the asset lifecycle for all stakeholders. Presentations include how BIM has been delivered on real world projects.

Andrej Mocicka, Sales & Business Development Manager, LISTECH Pty Ltd
The presentation will outline what BIM is and how, where, when and why it is used. Explaining how cost, time and project complexity are well recognised as being major components of a construction project, with accurate spatial location also being fundamental. As spatial data professionals, the role of surveyors will be explained, detailing how they work and interact with other professions in the BIM lifecycle. The presentation will outline how this can be achieved using LISTECH NEO to seamlessly transfer information to and from GIS (ESRI, MapInfo), BIM (IFC/IFCzip), AutoCAD, MicroStation, Google Earth, field surveying instruments, XML, LISCAD and other systems.
Andrej is the Sales & Business Development Manager at LISTECH Pty Ltd and has been involved in the Spatial Industry since 1979. Completing a Bachelor of Applied Science (Surveying) at RMIT University (with Distinction) in 1986 and a post graduate course in Land Data Management at the RMIT University in 1990. Andrej has also been involved in a diverse range of activities as a practising surveyor from traditional surveying, property evaluation and computer administration and management. In 1991 he joined TOPCON Australia as the state manager for Victoria and Tasmania and in 1995 commenced with LISTECH. Andrej has also had a long association with the Spatial Industry on a professional level, being on committee of the Institution of Surveyors Victoria Division from 1992 to 2003 and serving as President in 2000. Andrej is currently on the National and Victorian SSSI Land Survey Commission.

Rob Hamilton, Business Development Manager, Warner Surveys
BIM is gradually transforming and ushering in a digital revolution in the construction sector, increasing efficiency and reducing risk. The process generates information models that can be used throughout the asset’s lifecycle. The onus is on the whole supply chain to develop information models. It implies that standardised processes and agreed methods are to be followed in a collaborative working environment. Hence awareness and understanding of BIM by the supply chain is critical for project success. A key member of the supply chain is the surveyors. They address topographical and positional challenges in construction projects, capturing existing scenarios to provide data rich/intelligent 3D models. This presentation from Warner Surveys highlights the role of surveyors and asks will their role change?
Dipaneeta Das is a CAD Technology /BIM Manager at Warner Surveys. In this role, it is her responsibility to drive the CAD department in pursuit of technical excellence and provide quality deliverables to clients. She holds a Bachelor Degree in Architecture and a Masters degree in City Planning from India. Her work experience spans across various industries – offshore wind, electricity networks, geospatial and construction. Dipaneeta is also a STEM Ambassador and enjoys volunteering.
Robert is Business Development Manager for Warner Surveys. Having studied Geography at the University of Aberdeen Robert began his career as a dimensional control and laser scanning surveyor for the offshore oil and gas industry, a sector he continued to work in for 8 years. He has held a variety of roles including Survey Coordinator and Business Development Manager before joining Warner Surveys in 2017 to support Business Development across the Topographic, Construction and Industrial divisions at Warner’s.
Andy Evans, Product Manager, Topcon
Survey4BIM has highlighted several key geospatial elements that could derail adoption and implementation of levels 2 and 3 BIM. The presentation will focus on the collective’s work, the Digital Plan of Work for Survey, the Accuracy issue and the proposed future work programme (Interoperability). Many have dismissed BIM as being all noise and no substance. This is not so: BIM has become an essential part of wide area asset management throughout the whole project lifecycle. This presentation will boil it down to the base elements and talk to the right stakeholders at the right time.
Andrew Evans is a Product Manager for Topcon Positioning Systems, he has expertise in laser scanning, rapid survey techniques and digital photogrammetry. He works every day to increase efficiency for the construction industry though the use of intelligent hardware and software solutions.
Andy Jackson, Director, Scan and Model
The presentation will feature case studies on two very different Scan-to-BIM projects. The first, a huge shopping centre in Sydney, Australia, covering a floor area of 475,000m2 needed over 4700 scans to complete. The second involves the Royal Sydney Golf Club, which hosts the Australian Open. Laser Scanning, GPS, and aerial drone photography were used to deliver a highly detailed model and visualisations. The presentation will include the hardware and software used, as well as discussing the methods to overcome hurdles, such as improving surveying and office work flows, and
Andy has 15 years of experience within the surveying, engineering, architecture and construction industry. In 2017, he became the Director and Co-founder of Scan and Model Ltd, along with its parent company in Australia, Project Surveyors, to provide expertise in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction industry.
Marco Di Mauro, Segment Manager, Leica Geosystems
Modern monitoring systems are good examples of the ‘Internet of Things’ where sensors are smart and able to communicate with each other and share results over the web to present computed and filtered data as information for decision makers. This optimisation of risk management is part of the proven effectiveness of adopting BIM, a solution with the aim of reducing the risks of delivering a project not being on time or on budget through implementing a more connected data strategy. This presentation will show where monitoring data can fit into the BIM process through possible and future integration.
Marco Di Mauro is a monitoring expert and passionate since more than 15 years. Segment Manager for Leica Geosystems in UK with proven experience in designing and delivering monitoring solutions in several countries using optical, geotechnical, dynamic and environmental sensor for a total of over 150 projects in Europe, Middle East and Asia including CrossRail (UK), TAV (Italy), Dniepr 4 major dams (UA), Metro Doha and Son Lah big landslide (Vietnam). Skilled in Monitoring, Telecommunications, Power supply systems, Strong operations professional with a BS focused in Telecommunications from Politecnico di Milano Marco is also expert in Big Data and IoT technologies.
Paul Surin, Head of Digital Built Environment, Wienerberger
Adrian Burgess, Technical Director, PCSG, Wienerberger
The Digital Built Environment approach considers the social, resource and commercial viability of a development and automates this process by pulling together localised planning, environmental and economic considerations with user requirements and preferences. It also directly links digital manufacturing and supply chain optimisation with the delivery of social outcomes; it enables the right homes in the right place at an affordable price. This presentation demonstrates, through a simple interface, how the combination of Geo-information, point cloud data, multiple (BIM) models combine in a Common Data Environment to help make better, quicker and cost effective decisions at all of the RIBA Digital Plan of Work Stages.The combination of building information correctly geo-located opens up a new world of possibilities.
