PDC Presents at the MegaProjects: Theory Meets Practice Workshop at Curtin University

University of Notre Dame Campus Crossroads - 1

Rod Bird presented at the 2nd International Workshop on the 4-5th September.  His topic focused on Building Information Modelling for Megaprojects. 

The workshop follows on from last years event held in London, where researchers and practitioners can exchange ideas and learn about new developments in the practice, science, and theory related to megaproject planning and design, management, organization and financing across industries e.g. mining, oil and gas, transport, utilities, energy, and around the globe.

The workshop is designed for participants to share ideas, present and discuss emerging concepts, debate alternative theoretical approaches, learn about new innovative practices, and deepen their understanding of the problems and challenges facing megaprojects.

The feedback from Rod’s presentation was astounding. Below is an excerpt from recent correspondence from the organizer.

“On behalf of the organizing committee I would like to thank you for providing us with a wonderful and insightful presentation about how BIM is being used within WA Infrastructure. You made a complex issue very understandable and the audience really appreciated and learnt a lot about the need for data integration and collaboration throughout a project’s life cycle. Your presentation provided a platform for the need for “us” to better examine risk, project design etc.

Curtin University looks forward to working with PDC in the future and we hope you will be able to demonstrate how BIM can enable Mega-project success at future workshops that will be undertaken.”
