Besides the main conference, BIM World MUNICH provides exciting breakout sessions with BIM experienced companies presenting their latest products, innovations, and approaches. The breakout sessions are built to give insightful and practice-oriented information on a variety of topics within the different areas of BIM.

BIM & Legislation

Now that clear expectations have been formulated by political entities regarding implementation delays of BIM in Germany, one question remains: where should we start? The best way to obtain a clear picture of the situation is by taking a look at how legislation processes can provide appropriate tools to facilitate safe and sound decision-making. Learn where you should start!

BIM meets FM

Real estate owners and facility managers are also benefiting from the digital models generated with BIM. From the planning of maintenance intervals to the regular monitoring of a “building health log”, digital planning processes are presenting valuable tools for FM. Find out how BIM can improve the operation of buildings through the presentation of best practice examples in the FM field.

BIM City

New cities = smart cities? The digital revolution not only present considerable advantages for the achievement of single projects: on a larger scale, the integration of Building Information Modeling into the strategic planning of building clusters has the potential to increase the performance of buildings, both at the individual and collective levels. Discover how the cities of tomorrow will become innovation hubs.

BIM meets Architecture

This is not a secret anymore; BIM and Architecture go hand in hand. However, choosing the right software can sometimes be challenging. The selection of authoring tools is a fast-growing market and software manufacturers are engaged in fierce competition to gain new users. This breakout session aims to help you find the right software that suits your needs. Take the lead and see how you can start with BIM.

BIM for Infrastructures

The many advantages of the model-based approach characterized by BIM are not exclusively reserved for traditional building projects: BIM is also driven by transport and infrastructure installations. Projects benefit from the parametric modeling and enhanced workflow supported by the BIM process. Not yet convinced? This breakout session will provide many practical examples showing how it is possible.

BIM goes International

BIM is everywhere and there are just as many ways of implementing it as there are countries employing it. Having a look at what is happening abroad helps to learn and borrow from other nations while supporting the elaboration of better-shaped strategies towards local needs. Find out how BIM goes International and also why this concerns us all.

And the best thing is: The breakout sessions are accessible for all visitors of BIM World MUNICH!
