GIS and openBIM drive innovation, communication and success for Skanska

Join GIS and BIM leaders from Skanska UK whose use of openBIM and GIS drives innovation, improves communication and leads to success on some of England’s largest infrastructure projects. Hear the story behind the project and learn where IFC is being used in Tender, Design and Construction on HS2 and Highways England RDP.

The complexity of these linear infrastructure projects, the environmental impact of the construction and operation, and the sizes of projects require the input and collaboration of a large team of design and geospatial experts.

This session highlighted how Skanska’s approach to openBIM and their use of GIS lead to successfully making available many types of data and brought value to all teams and stakeholders.

The webinar introduced an integrated approach leveraging GIS and openBIM, showing how together they improve digital delivery and productivity. Using specific project examples, Skanska’s leaders explained how streamlining workflows between BIM software was accomplished with IFC data as a key to the approach. You will leave this session understanding how maximizing GIS and BIM expands value to all technical and non-technical teams throughout the lifecycle of the infrastructure.
