BIM (Building Information Modelling) has become a critical issue for foodservice equipment suppliers, specifiers, designers and consultants. It’s not only a matter of understanding it, it’s also about keeping up to date with the rapidly developing software and protocols.  

The Foodservice Industry BIM Information Day is a free event open to anyone that works within the foodservice industry.  It is organised by CESA in collaboration with CEDA and the FCSI and will take place on 5th September 2018, from 10.30am to 3.00pm, in the training facilities at First Choice Group in Cannock.

“The day will be an objective, fact-based, knowledge exchange forum highlighting specific developments in BIM which affect the foodservice equipment industry,” says Glenn Roberts, chair of CESA.

Topics covered on the day will include the latest developments in BIM parameters for foodservice equipment, along with issues that manufacturers face in addressing the needs of the design and installation channel.  The day will also look at what designers and consultants need to meet BIM protocols and the latest software developments.

There will be reports on the use of BIM resource libraries – CESABIM and EFCEMBIM – by both manufacturers and designers, as well as the findings of a survey into issues affecting BIM implementation.

“This event is a must for any foodservice equipment professional working with BIM, or wanting to find out about the latest issues,” says Roberts.  “BIM has huge implications for our industry and it is developing fast.  This event will bring people the very latest advances, issues and ideas.”

The event is free to attend but spaces are limited, so anyone planning to go should book as quickly as possible.
