AROUND 40 ARCHITECTS AND BUILDING SPECIALISTS ATTENDED THE HUB SOUTH WEST SCOTLAND DOUBLE WORKSHOP HOSTED AT THE WORKS' RIVERBANK MILL SHOWROOM.
Hub South West Scotland delivered another two successful BIM events at The Works' showroom on 12 Feb 2015 - an ideal environment for A&D sector seminars and workshops.
The morning presentation, titled: Managing Asbestos Risk, was led by Colin McCartney of Damada Asbestos Removals from East Kilbride, and covered health hazards, asbestos uses in buildings, legislative background and sampling, surveys and training.
The afternoon event delivered an introduction to Building Information Modelling for Construction Professionals - presenting a gentle introduction to the collaborative world of BIM, the advantages it offers and the challenges it poses for construction professionals. It covered many of the terms and concepts that are used and gave a better understanding of what it all means and how it affects the industry.
Attendees enjoyed a light lunch and coffee and participated in a lively Q&A session after both events - taking advantage of the relaxed setting, and afterwards enjoyed a tour of the building, our newest showroom and a sampling of what The Works has to offer.
