BSRIA is staging its Information Management in FM Event on Friday 5th February, from 9:30 until 13:30 hrs, in London and urges industry to attend – for greater understanding.
Delivering information is relatively easy in this digital age but delivering useful information is more challenging. This event is aimed at bringing the facilities management industry together with the construction supply chain. Advancement in Building Information Modelling gives the industry a fantastic opportunity to get information management right from the start for new projects.
The event will provide an introduction into the power of good information and then looks in more detail as to what the supply chain is being challenged with and how clients can improve what they ask for.
A challenge presented from a recent case study will get the delegates thinking about information management which is followed by a workshop to identify the information requirements needed in operation and how the supply chain can deliver that.
Tracey Tilbry, Networks & Events Manager, BSRIA, said: “Building managers are tasked with the never ending job of keeping up with the demands of the core business. It is advantageous for all those tasked with this to embrace Building Information Management in order to demonstrate the best use of resources and the savings that could be achieved.
Above all, these events are a fantastic opportunity to network and share best practice with your peers, clients and competitors.”
This key event is run as a series of events for BSRIA’s O&M Benchmarking Network which has been running for almost 15 years.
The event will be held at: Thomson Reuters, Canary Wharf, London EC14 5EP; directions
