BIM Middle East 2019 Conference & Expo Open BIM: The Key To Industry 4.0

23 09 2019
 Dusit Thani Dubai, UEA   23/09 - 25/09/2019

Developments and advancements in computer software have grown exponentially over the last few decades in the construction sector, perhaps none more so than Building Information Modelling (BIM).

Why BIM Mddle East 2019?

Construction industry professionals have continuously searched for ways to make development of the built environment a faster, efficient, safer and more cost-effective process.

BIM facilitates virtual visualisation of the complete physical and functional representation of a built asset and environment which includes information on design, construction, budget, logistics, materials, operation, schedules and maintenance.

Developments in the Middle East are playing a major role in this arena!

Comprehensive information included within a BIM model and the increase of information exchanged contained within BIM allows for an improved and increased analysis than previous processes. BIM now gives greater ability to integrate information and data across multi disciplines throughout a project's lifecycle.

UAE's adoption of BIM

UAE’s construction sector has been rapidly expanding following Dubai being announced as host of Expo 2020. With recent Dubai Municipality mandates, BIM is now increasingly being used on large scale projects in the UAE. Abu Dhabi also announced recently a decision to adopt BIM.

Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) recently unveiled the Middle East and North Africa's first building information modelling (BIM) centre. This follows the launch in 2015 by the RTA of a BIM platform that deals with assets information in an all-inclusive method commencing from the design stage.

Saudi Vision 2030

Saudi Vision 2030 offers huge opportunities for BIM in major construction and infrastructure projects, including the Red Sea luxury resort and other nationwide development.

Fastest growing construction sector 

According to a BMI Research report in May this year, Oman has the fastest growing construction sector in the Middle East, including major infrastructure development offering further excellent opportunities for BIM.

Upwards trend prediction

Further reports predict and demonstrate only upward trends in the construction sector for other Gulf States. This is your opportunity to find out the role BIM will play, plus all the latest developments and potential for BIM in the region.
