ROUND TABLE

The Nordic BIM Summit Round tables will gather representatives from across the industry for discussion on current and important topics. To ensure all participants can share their views and insights the number of attendees is limited to 14 persons, including one moderator and one note-taker. We will share summary after the event. 

With the climate change impacting the infrastructure in cities and on highways, there is a clear need to handle water drainage, floodage etc. Overall, there is a big need to support municipalities and other players to make the right investments for improved climate resilience. In parallel, new projects are started to facilitate renewable energy sources (i.e wind and solar) which in turn requires supporting infrastructure. How can we in our industry make the right decision that both support a more sustainable future as well as giving us access to tools for improved collaboration and decision making? Join us for a Round table led by Guillaume Joubert, Autodesk and Dan Wiik, Symetri.

KEYNOTE: FORMS OF KNOWLEDGE IN THE DIGITAL AGE

SPEAKER: LARS STRANNEGÅRD, PRESIDENT AT STOCKHOLM SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS

Why is the role of philosophy and literature in the digital era important? How are contemporary art and fiction related to learning? And why should the construction industry care? Lars Strannegård will share his insights in why broadened horizons are so important in our digital world. He will explain how aesthetic experiences can be key to understanding others, interpreting big-picture developments in the light of established facts, and making sense of the present by tracing its causes in the past.

He shows how scientific knowledge is related to aesthetic knowledge and why we today need to emphasize the need to combine the hand, heart and head. We will at the end of this presentation reflect on the impact on our industry, our companies and us as individuals, what does it mean for a building engineer, an architect or a BIM-manager?

PARALLEL BREAKOUT SESSIONS

Cloud technology offers convenience, accessibility, and efficiency. You also facilitate collaboration, remote work, and data backup. However, your data is stored on shared, third-party servers, which can be accessed from anywhere. This raises concerns about the secrecy of the data, despite security measures in place. This is crucial as secrecy implies that all your information remains private, secure, and undisclosed, that you are in control of your data. In this session

Pontus Bengtson from Autodesk will present the work they have done together with Trafikverket, to find the right balance. He will show examples of guidelines and documents that will enable you to be in control of information sharing and storing.

Speaker: Pontus Bengtson, Autodesk

Josef Carlson brings firsthand experience in leading the transition to ACC for Solar Park Construction. His session will delve into practical dos and don'ts when shifting from traditional file management to a Digital Construction Platform. Expect to gain actionable insights for applying ACC effectively in your projects and bring your own insights for a productive conversation.

Speaker: Josef Carlson, Svea Solar

How do you implement a model and data-centric project with a focus on reuse? And how do you use data in the project to evaluate the CO2 footprint of projected material? The 21,000 m2 Lumi project utilizes the reuse of the original building stock from the 70s on a large scale to achieve sustainability and carbon footprint goals. Per Höglin from Byggstyrning comes to Nordic BIM Summit to show practical examples of reuse in a digital environment.

Speaker: Per Höglin, Byggstyrning

In recent years, environmental certification for buildings and properties has evolved from being a "nice to have" feature to a "need to have" for many. Legislation, such as the EU taxonomy and CSRD, is increasing the value of green properties and investments. Consequently, it is becoming more important to report and keep track of your portfolio. Property companies are opting for certifications like BREEAM as part of their sustainability strategy. This to adhere to more strict environmental requirements, attract investors and tenants, and secure better loan terms. Certifications also offer practical benefits by providing an overview of the project's sustainability status and objectives. However, many perceive certification processes as difficult and expensive. In this presentation Fabian Utigard from Kvist Solutions will share insights from success factors of the best in class in how you can turn this work into a success!

KEYNOTE: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) FOR A SMART DIGITAL WORKFORCE

SPEAKER: JOCHEN TEIZER, TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF DENMARK (DTU)

Planning construction projects and tracking the vital status of resources are becoming increasingly important to base project decision making on solid information content. However, key values that are essential among the construction stakeholders to deliver successful projects are often not readily and reliably available. The essence of this issue is driving the ongoing efforts in digitalizing existing construction processes in organizations.

This presentation focuses on methods and technologies that provide augmented workplaces saturated with digital planning tools for lean and safe operations, remote sensing and predictive analysis for proactive real-time risk mitigation, and immersive visualization for active learning. Theoretical concepts as well as examples of real-world use case applications as part of two EU-funded research projects on Digital Twins for building (BIM2TWIN) and infrastructure (GOGITO) projects will be shown. The vision for future work and transfer to practice will be explained.

Speaker: Jochen Teizer, Technical University of Denmark (DTU)

PARALLEL BREAKOUT SESSIONS

In order to significantly reduce CO2 emissions associated with the construction industry, the reuse of building materials is considered the most effective measure. Therefore, Loopfront and Tvinn Solutions recently collaborated on developing system integration that ensures a seamless transfer of reused materials from the mapping process to digital design BIM.

Speaker: Brede Stokland, Tvinn Solution & Håkon Groven, Loopfront

Example from Lumi, a large recycling project with offices and laboratories in Uppsala.

Speaker: Anders Tväråna, White Architects

Join us in this session where we will talk about how we can work more efficiently together as one team using the power of the cloud and the functionality of Autodesk Construction Cloud. To keep the BIM's in sync is the key to achieve success, and the cloud gives us the possibility to interact and explore models on the go. Revit files, IFC's, DWG's are combined together in the same coordination model, and automatic clash detection runs each time new changes are made. The design process is finally made available to all project stakeholders.

Speaker: Marius Alnes, Norconsult

BIM implementation may seem like a bumpy ride at times as it involves a wide variety of tools, various design disciplines at different project stages that will all require various data sets of information develop to certain level of detail and with numerous metadata information assigned to geometry elements. To make things slightly worse the BIM Data will have to transition from design to construction and then to operation stage, where it will suffer several iterations through-out the building lifecycle. This class is meant to describe “WHAT GOOD LOOKS LIKE?” when using BIM in plain language describing the process from its end to inception whilst highlighting potential issues that may require attention with a strong emphasis on designing, building, and operating our physical assets  in a sustainable manner.

Speaker: Radu-Ionut Boeriu, TP Bennett

BIM and Virtual Design and Construction have already boosted construction quality, but there´s more to be done. To further improve efficiency, safety, and sustainability, we should leverage the hidden data of projects. Lessons learned from data driven practices, the importance of information management and what we should look for next.

The construction industry is responsible for 39% of the carbon footprint. More and more actors, from architect firms to software companies, talk about the progression they are making. Where do we as an industry stand now? Can we clearly see that we are “getting our act together” and what will this mean not just for us but for the planet as a whole, or let’s start here in the Nordics? In this roundtable we look forward to an interesting discussion around tools and methods to find out if we are now at a stage where we can start to see some real results.

Info regarding Oslo will come soon.

Cloud solutions are here to stay. They offer us convenience; ease of sharing data and you can relay on that you have access to the latest data. However they also means investments both in software, licenses and training. How are we to defend these investments, are we truly finding the economies of scale we have been promised? Or could it even be so that it delivers more and other values that we have not quite accounted for yet? Join this roundtable if you want to engage further in understanding how the case for cloud investments can lead to increased productivity and thus profitability.

Info regarding Oslo will come soon.

The introduction of AI raises questions not only about technology, security and ways of working but also around our business models. Our industry is many times still based upon a model where we charge per hour. What will happen now when we can become even more efficient and produce many different versions at early stages and simulations covering different alternatives as the project matures? Are we now ready to charge according to values created and in that case who decides the value? Or is this an even bigger change, that impacts the different roles? Join this roundtable for an interesting discussion on how to change the business models in times of pressure.
