InfoComm seminar reveals AV’s place in BIM

InfoComm will explore how Building Information Modelling (BIM) will impact AV design and integration at LLB 2011, a tradeshow in Stockholm, Sweden.

Scott Wills, director of international education at the trade association, will hold the seminar titled ‘BIM: An introduction to Building Information Modelling its impact on the AV Community.’ Sessions will take place on May and 19.

“The increasingly widespread use of BIM in the design, construction and maintenance of buildings has the potential to fundamentally alter the fabric of the audiovisual design and integration business,” said Wills. “BIM allows designers to view their building and its contents from any angle, revealing potential problems at early stages to allow correction before integration.

“It follows, therefore, that any equipment to be included in a project that uses BIM must have BIM data developed by the manufacturer and available to the design team. By covering the basics of BIM and outlining available resources that offer more information, this session gives audiences an idea of just how important this technology will prove to be, and what steps they can take to update their business practices in line with BIM developments.”

LLB is held every two years and focuses on the audio, video, lighting and multimedia sector.
