The IET and BRE will host their first joint Digitising Construction conference in April to bring the latest BIM news to the industry.

The two co-located events – Digitally Built and BIM Prospects – will provide a 360º picture of digitising the construction sector. Delegates booking for either conference will have full access to both events, taking place in London on 20-21 April.


The IET’s Digitally Built conference will examine the practicalities of BIM adoption, including whole-life costing, system integration through the whole supply chain, the use of robotics and virtual reality in the construction process and addressing cyber security concerns.


The BRE’s BIM Prospects conference will assess where the construction industry is one year on from the launch of the BIM Level 2 mandate, with updates on PAS standards, best practice approaches, interoperability issues, the development of BIM for product manufacturers and an introduction to the Construction Products Association’s LEXiCON tool.


Professor Jeremy Watson CBE, President of the IET and Chief Scientist & Engineer at BRE, said: “The Digitising Construction conference is a fantastic opportunity for all built environment specialists to get together, hear the latest updates around BIM Level 2 and work through new ideas and ways of working as the industry moves towards BIM Level 3. I am looking forward to seeing the industry come together via the BRE and IET conferences as we share the joint goal of a fully digitised construction industry.”
