The National BIM Conference

The National BIM Conference

The issue is no longer why or when to adopt BIM, but how to deploy it – now… 

Making the best decisions on this critical technology is challenging.

  • What does management need to know for implementation?
  • How can you ensure good ROI on your software investment?
  • Where can you find the best resources from software and standards to people and practice?
  • Which companies are successful with BIM now and what are their stories, lessons, learned, and expert advice?
  • How can BIM expand and improve the services you offer your clients?
  • How can BIM help drive your green building and sustainability strategy?

All the answers you need are waiting for you at The National BIM Conference®.

Beyond 3D Modeling, Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent and computable 3D data set shared across disciplines. The National BIM Conference® is the only event addressing the IT needs of the ENTIRE facilities and construction team including:

  • How information and electronic data are leveraged throughout the lifecycle of the facility
  • How information standards are defined and shared

While other events only target a niche or two within the lifecycle of the built environment, the National BIM Conference® delivers comprehensive interoperability and collaboration solutions.

The National High Performance Building Conference

The National High Performance Building Conference

Why is High Performance Building such a Hot Topic?

High Performance Buildings are energy efficient, have limited environmental impact and operate with the lowest possible life-cycle costs. There are a number of ways to achieve high-performance buildings, such as the use of life-cycle cost analysis, integrated design processes, building information modeling (BIM), integrated energy solutions for the building envelope and building commissioning. All these issues are addressed at The National High Performance Building Conference and we deliver the building industry professionals interested in learning about the best and newest products to provide effective solutions to improve their buildings.

The High Performance Building Conference at Ecobuild America includes executive level meetings, roundtable discussions, seminars, a vendor product exhibit and a short course theater to highlight HPB products and services covering the following subjects:

  • Sustainability
  • Accessibility
  • Aesthetics
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Function and Operation
  • Historic Preservation
  • Productivity
  • Safety and Security

The National Specifiers Conference

The National Specifiers Conference

This must-attend conference is for architectural and engineering specification professionals. It is the most forward-looking conference on specification writing for the construction industry.

This conference is the ideal place to discuss the impact specification changes have on you, and to talk with industry experts about what other trends are ahead in the future. Don’t miss this concentrated group of sessions on specifications production.

  • See live demonstrations and case studies by vendors of design tools and construction and asset management applications.
  • Find how information flowing throughout a project can be captured and consolidated to ensure that the owner/occupier continues to have a clear and complete description of the facility.
  • Talk with industry experts about what other trends are ahead in the future.
  • Stay up to date with the most advanced automation and production tools for specs.
  • Discover new resources that help save time and improve quality.
  • Learn the latest in green specs and sustainable product selection.
  • Exchange ideas with the most experienced specification writers in the country.
  • Prepare your practice for the inevitable future changes.

BIM in the Academy

BIM in the Academy delivers a robust and comprehensive curriculum that reflects the ever-growing importance of BIM and its effect on making our built world better, greener, safer and healthier.  The Academy will answer the building science community’s increasing demand for information with this special program by educators, for educators.  Developed by front-line universities that are driving industry innovation, the conference submits cutting edge developments in BIM and sustainability and how our next generation of AEC professionals are learning to apply and advance new technology.
