CESA, in collaboration with CEDA and the FCSI, is organising the Foodservice Industry BIM (Building Information Modelling) Information Day.
To take place on 5 September from 10.30am to 3.00pm in the training facilities at First Choice Group in Cannock, the event is free and open to anyone that works within the foodservice industry, though spaces are limited.
The associations feel that BIM has become a critical issue for foodservice equipment suppliers, specifiers, designers and consultants, and that as well as understanding it, all parties need to keep up to date with rapidly developing software and protocols.
CESA chair Glenn Roberts said: “The day will be an objective, fact based, knowledge exchange forum highlighting specific developments in BIM which affect the foodservice equipment industry.”
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.
Roberts added: “This event is a must for any foodservice equipment professional working with BIM, or wanting to find out about the latest issues. BIM has huge implications for our industry and it is developing fast. This event will bring people the very latest advances, issues and ideas.”
