Hochiki Europe set to host BIM-focused webinar for fire safety professionals

by Brian Sims

On Thursday 14 April at 1.00 pm, Hochiki Europe is hosting an educational webinar for fire safety-focused professionals. Entitled: ‘What You Need to Know About Building Information Modelling (BIM) for Today and Tomorrow’, the webinar will explore how – with the 2016 Government deadline for the adoption of BIM Level 2 on all centrally procured projects now upon us – life safety system installers and building, risk and security managers alike can cope with the new demands.

On the day of the live broadcast, Paul Adams (marketing manager at Hochiki Europe) will be joined by Rob Clark, BIM consultant at specialist training firm Excitech.

As part of the discussion, they will be taking questions on (and covering in some depth) the following topics:

*What does BIM mean?

*How is BIM used in the fire industry?

*Practical advice for installers and end users dealing with BIM

*Where the demand for BIM will come from

Speaking about the webinar, Adams explained: “The arrival of the BIM Level 2 deadline marks a major shift in the way in which we design, build and even maintain new developments. However, adopting it across the fire safety and construction sectors does bring its challenges.”

Adams continued: “By exploring these challenges with fellow professionals now, we can work together to identify ways to ease the transition towards BIM and ensure the new approach truly lives up to its potential to optimise efficiency, cut costs and deliver more effective buildings.”
