Continued from the BIM 2015 introductory tour series, ‘ Jelajah BIM and IBS 2017’ spread its wing late July this year at Hotel Promenade in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. The roadshow seminar was part of CIDB’s 2017 ongoing effort of educating and creating deeper interest on BIM. The seminar focused on introducing BIM and IBS as well as its uses to local authorities, developers, consultants and contractors and its cost-effective adaptation methods in the increasingly challenging industry competition.
About 227 participants were exposed to the latest construction technology that were shared by experienced presenters, beginning with myBIM’s Initiative, a demo and simulation of BIM, the implementation of BIM on JKR projects and the IBS ecosystem. The sessions were made more meaningful with industry sharing, a lively Q & A session as well as workshops on topics such as IBS project management, town planning and the future of making things. Highest interest from participants saw the half-day seminar being extended to a full day.
