When it comes to developing and improving infrastructure for communities around the world, technologies such as geographic information system (GIS), CAD, and BIM (Building Information Modeling) are essential. In recent years there has been a growing trend toward enabling greater synergy between these technology platforms, to ensure optimal infrastructure design. In particular, the closer integration of GIS and BIM technologies is seeing optimized designs, accelerated project approvals, reduced costs, smarter cities, and more-resilient infrastructure. This presentation will explore how Cardno—a leading Australian infrastructure and environmental services company—is working to integrate these technologies on numerous large-scale infrastructure projects. It will demonstrate how data capture methods such as land and aerial survey, field data capture, and off-the-shelf data can be integrated, managed, analyzed, and effectively visualized to project stakeholders, so they can better understand and communicate what is being proposed.
- Understand the importance of having data at the center of your project
- Investigate the various technologies associated with BIM deliverables
- Understand the integration of GIS into traditional BIM projects
- Learn how to challenge standard workflows with the integration of data
Cardno being a global engineering consultancy business, there is a need to manager our software usage and the implementation to create a stable environment. I mange this process through our regional teams, to ensure consistency across the globe. I personally have come from an Architectural background, but moved into management about 5 years ago.
Founder / Director of aeol.com.au and a Technology Consultant with a wide range of experience across Australia's consulting and construction engineering community. Experience incorporates the setup and implementation of complex information management systems, CAD, BIM and DE systems, as well as new product development, backed by groundings in civil design on both small and major infrastructure projects.
I currently work as a Customer Success Manager for Autodesk, servicing large AEC firms in APAC and across the globe. With a strong technical background and extensive experience in customer facing roles, my career has been centred around connecting the worlds of technology and business. I'm driven by making a tangible difference to the lives of people who adopt technology, enabling them to achieve better results with less effort. Listening, enquiry and communication skills are critical to my success uncovering issues and opportunities as well as formulating solutions and communicating intent to stakeholders from various backgrounds and levels. I first presented at Autodesk University in 2011 and have been attending and presenting regularly since.
