Swindon and Wiltshire Action for Property are holding a breakfast meeting for anyone connected with housing in the area to discuss the future of the industry. Registration takes place on Friday, July 13 at 8am for a 8.45am start, ending at around 9.30am.

The speaker will be Andrew Carpenter – Chief Executive of Structual Timber Association and Chair of BIM4Housing. This is a cross-industry group open to all organisations involved in the design, construction, management and delivery of housing, both private and affordable, whose mission is to assist the building of more and better homes through digitalisation by supporting organisations in the housing sector with the adoption of Building Information Modelling.

BIM4Housing is featured throughout Chapter 8 of Dame Judith Hackitt's May 2018 Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety. The review highlights the need for a "golden thread" of information for all higher risk residential buildings so that their original design intent is preserved and changes can be managed through a formal review process. Equally, it highlights the need for access to up-to-date information, crucial when effectively carrying out a fire risk assessment of a building and determining whether any action is required.

With an increased focus on building safety Andrew will explain the benefits of BMI in the housing sector (for both new builds and existing buildings), highlight some recent high profile success stories and the impact upon the property industry moving forward.

There will be time for Q&A afterwards.

The cost to attend is £10, payable upon registration or by cash or cheque (made out to SNAP) on the day, when we will be issuing receipts.
