Announcing Build London Live, 2012 Edition – May 21st through 23rd

48 hours to make design work for the London

Building on the global success of Build London Live design events in 2008 and 2009, Asite and AEC3, in conjunction with BuildingSMART are happy to announce Build London Live, 2012 Edition.

Event Dates

This is a 48 hour virtual design collaboration starting on Monday, May 21st 2012 – Noon BST and running through to a finish on Wednesday, May 23rd 2012 – Noon BST. The concluding press conference, also delivered online via webinar, will be hosted at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) hedquarters in London.

What is a BUILD LIVE Event?

New technology is revolutionising the way buildings are designed and how the public can be engaged in the process. Via the power of cloud-based collaborative working and international developments in interoperability, Build London Live shows the power of these new paradigms for architecture, engineering, planning and construction. Through cloud-based collaboration the event is open to world wide participation.

The Challenge

On May 21st – Noon BST, a specially chosen and internationally recognisable site in London will be announced, along with a brief for a significant multi-use development. All the key information will be published in interoperable formats. Teams will be free to exploit any interoperable technology and to add updates to a public collaboration-site. All visitors will be free to comment.

The launch will coincide with the start of the buildingSMART International executive sessions in London.  A short live presentation will be made after the initial keynote speech, to brief the delegates. Teams will be asked to develop an outline proposal by midday on the Tuesday.  The event will conclude at midday on Wednesday and will be followed shortly afterwards will presentations to the press and a final jury will make a number of awards with the BuildingSMART International executive as .

@openBIM FAQ 14 of 14 | Open BIM

What are the benefits of Open BIM for building projects in the AEC industry?

Building projects themselves are products with their own market. With diminishing differences in building materials and technology, next to buildings’ genuine design added labels such as “sustainability” can greatly increase the potential project value on the market. The Open BIM movement offers projects an additional label with very positive associations. Future owners, operators and tenants of such buildings will have better chances to further utilize the digital building model if it was created using the Open BIM approach in the first place. This promise is worth more and more real $$$ with the continuously elongate building cycles.

@openBIM FAQ 13 of 14 | Open BIM

What are the benefits of Open BIM for organization in the AEC industry?

In contrast to CLOSED (or “proprietary”) BIM the OPEN strategy offers great benefits to building professionals:

  • Project members can work with the best-of-breed solution of their respective field without risking exclusion from certain BIM projects.
  • Project members can maintain full control over software upgrades independently from their peers in different projects they participate.
  • Workflow integration results in greatly reduced coordination errors compared to sheer file compatibility of the different software tools.
  • Due to open standards accessibility of BIM data is provided for the entire lifecycle of buildings including construction and operation.

What are the benefits of Open BIM for software vendors?

AEC software vendors’ primary benefit to join the Open BIM movement is that they can offer their clients with open collaboration workflows that provide competitive advantage on local AEC markets. The Open BIM branding guarantees that the solutions developed by participating vendors comply with the Open BIM requirements and do not impose unnecessary limitations to AEC practices choosing their software to collaborate with any other practices.

Why should my organization join Open BIM?

Organizations all over the world have been encountering the collaboration issues detailed above. Different collaboration strategies have been used to address them including in many cases open collaboration workflow. At the same time open collaboration practices were used more as necessity in a plural AEC environment rather then intentional strategy to deliver better-coordinated projects.

The Open BIM movement elevates open collaboration to a strategic level where like-minded AEC professionals build upon their plurality to deliver building projects better coordinated, with less errors and in higher quality.

Should you or your organization share these values joining the OPEN BIM movement not only provides you with guidelines and best practices but also with common branding and international visibility to leverage upon these values and maximize the value of your projects. OPEN COLLABORATION → BETTER BIM!
