Creating a Better Built Environment

BIM & ASSET MANAGEMENT: 2015 Seminar Series wrap up

That’s a wrap!







buildingSMART Australasia together with ZUUSE and PDC would like to take a moment to thank you for your support of the 2015 Seminar Series: BIM in Asset Management.

The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and I am sure you agree that the Pyrmont Bridge project is a fantastic reflection on true BIM and innovation in asset management.

We all know that BIM is fast becoming the Holy Grail in facilities and asset management. But how is BIM being applied in the real world today? Is it working? What results are being achieved?

This Seminar Series addressed these questions and more with a case study presentation from the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority (SHFA) on the century old heritage-listed Pyrmont Bridge, a major Sydney landmark that attracts more than five million pedestrians each year.

Wayne Sahlman, Senior Facilities Supervisor at SHFA, presented a case study on the 3D BIM solution that has been implemented for the Pyrmont Bridge.
