Waterman hosts Japanese BIM Research delegation

Leaders and scientists from JACIC (Japanese Construction Information Centre), including CTI Engineering, Osaka University and the Civil User Group in Japan joined Waterman’s industry experts and engineers at the company’s headquarter in London for a research in BIM (Building Information Modeling) workshop on Thursday 12th October.

The delegation was visiting the UK, in order to gain an understanding of the UK’s approach to using BIM in Infrastructure related projects, which in turn would enable them to apply any lessons learnt to developing Japanese practices.

Waterman’s Director of Infrastructure & Environment, Peter Begbey, welcomed the 10-member delegation along with our BIM specialists Darren Snook, Geoff Woodhead and Mike Jones as well as specially invited Matthew Samways from BAM Nuttall. Together, our panel of experts illustrated the journey of BIM’s development in the UK from both the engineer and contractor’s perspective. It was an informative workshop which presented an opportunity to exchange intelligence, best practice and to discuss the future of BIM.

Peter Begbey commented; “I am very pleased with the outcome of today’s event. We exchanged knowledge and ideas on potential future collaboration between the UK and Japan. There is a wealth of opportunity for us to work together and develop our relationship further.”
