Event Dates

This is a 48 hour virtual design collaboration starting at midday on Tuesday 24th June 2008 and running through to a finish on midday Thursday 26th June. The concluding press conference, also delivered on line via video link, will be hosted at BIM Central London in the Wooolwich Arsenal at 2pm (UK BST) Thursday 26th June and will be followed by a drinks reception for participants, interested observers, and press. This will coincide with the Second London International buildingSMART conference to be held at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

What is a BIMSTORM BUILD LIVE Event?

New technology can revolutionise the way buildings are designed and how the public can be engaged in the process. By using the power of collaborative working, the web and international developments in interoperability, ‘BIMStorm Build LONDON Live’ will show the power of these new paradigms for architecture, engineering, planning and construction. By working across the web the event is open to world wide participation.

The Challenge

At midday on Tuesday 24th June, a specially chosen and internationally recognisable site in London will be announced, along with a brief for a significant multi-use development. All the key information will be published in interoperable formats. Teams will be free to exploit any interoperable technology and to add updates to a public web-site. All visitors to the web-site will be free to comment.

The launch will coincide with the start of the Government session of the Second London International buildingSMART conference, www.buildingsmart.org.uk and a short live presentation will be made after the initial keynote speech, to brief the delegates. Teams will be asked to develop an outline proposal by midday on the Wednesday. The delegates to the main Conference session will be asked comment on the schemes available, so that the Teams can respond in the following 24 hours with more detail and with any costing and environmental assessments. The final session will conclude at midday and shortly afterwards presentations to the press and a final jury will make a number of awards.
