BIM mandates are becoming more common across the globe, whether led by central government, demand from owners, or self-imposed by industry. In this presentation, representatives from the Air Conditioning and Mechanical Contractors' Association of Australia will discuss how they are specifying the delivery of the BIM-MEPAUS initiative on the Australian Building and Construction industry for consultants, contractors, and the supply chain, and what the effects of these conditions are on the businesses involved.
<p>Based in Melbourne, Australia, Warwick is Group Engineering Manager for the A.G. Coombs Group of Companies as well as the Technical Director for the BIM-MEPAUS Initiative.<br> <br> This initiative has been instrumental in promoting the use of Revit MEP based Building Information Modelling by the Australian Building Services Sector by developing workflows and standards that support integrated project design, delivery and FM Services. Central to the initiative is the integrated model workflow based on the use of the “Revit MEP all the Way” and Constructible Revit Modelling that draw on key principles drawn from the Autodesk Fabrication Suite. The workflow is now underpinning some of Australia’s largest and most challenging projects including the Barangaroo Project, Bendigo Hospital and Sydney’s new Convention Centre Darling Harbour Live.<br> <br> Warwick is currently also driving the transition of one of Australia’s leading building services companies to full Revit MEP based workflows with the aims of leveraging the virtual construction strategy and supply chain integration. The firm is now in the second phase of its BIM Implementation Strategy linking a number of other business platforms including project management, procure-to-pay and maintenance management systems into the Revit MEP construction model and data sets.<br> <br> Warwick has presented at a number of Australian BIM and Construction Innovation Conferences and is widely recognised for his expertise in BIM Strategy, Change Management and Off-site Fabrication as well as services design. He has a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a MBA; both form Monash University, Melbourne.</p>
