Highlights on 4 Experts’ opinions
In this event, we are pleased to have the founder & director of BIM House Global, MRICS, Mr. Prateek Singhal be the first guest speaker. He shared some insight towards the current situation in regards how the pandemic is and will affect the industry. In his opinions, digital technology is the key to maintaining and improving the core competence to the practitioners in each of their respective field
Following his session was the managing director of Glodon India, Mr. Frank Cui, whom shared his point of view on digital construction. As BIM is getting more common and ideas and possibilities are popping out from the industry, BIM will enable practitioners to keep up with the advancement of industry. 3D will provide geometric and quantity information; 4D allows progress of works to be monitored, 5D gives costing data to the project, among others. The boundary of works between parties in a project is also getting fuzzier, hence we will have to adapt to new workflow, or be left behind. Meanwhile interconnectivity of tasks is becoming more and more important.
Lastly, Glodon channel technical manager, Mr. Eric Lee and Glodon Malaysia BQ expert Mr. Tan Kwan Lim jointly showed how BIM QS would be like. Quantity takeoff will no longer be a tough task for QS, because the data are linked to the model and cost manage platform. Costing works are getting much more precise and efficient while the data is interconnected.
