Warning: A BIMStorm is approaching London!

BIMstorm: Build London Live Gathering Strength

BIMstorm: Build London Live is gaining strength and the host team located in UK, Netherlands and USA is already proving the value of international collaboration. Running in parallel with the 2nd London buildingSMART conference, their goal is to Make Design Happen for London in 48 hours.

Getting ready for the live collaboration from 24th June to 26th June, all of the preliminary information about the site on Greenwich Peninsula is now available online including a Google Maps interface, a Google Earth interface using the newly available Google Earth browser plugin, and an excellent video that shows the site context in some detail. A brief for the design work is also loaded to the site and this is being continuously developed.

You can register online for Build London Live and join others from UK, Finland, Norway, Netherlands, Japan, USA and Chile. But the team wants to encourage even more involvement! The host team will help individuals and small groups to find larger teams where necessary. Sponsors can also obtain information online.

Watch for more information as it happens.

The Host Team for BIMstorm: Build London Live 2008 is AEC3 UK, Asite, CADVisual and Onuma working in close collaboration.

Collaborative Construction Resources, LLC (CCR) is working with Kimon Onuma, the pioneering architect from Los Angeles, and his company, Onuma Inc., to promote widespread use of collaborative agreements, BIM and lean construction methods throughout all phases of the building process. CCR provides on-line and in person consulting services to all stakeholders in the construction industry. For more information visit our Website:
