Build London Live concludeds today - Big BIM Builders

Today concludes the Build London Live competition. I strongly urge you to take a look through the blog posts and look at the videos and graphics. Welcome to the future. A place where charrettes actually end up being your DD set of documents after just two days. Of course it's too late for those who haven't made the switch to BIM, but there will always be the need for AutoCAD detailers so don't fret.

Building on the success of Build LONDON Live 2008, Asite, AEC3 and BIM Products announce Build LONDON Live 2009 (Bll 2009) will take place from 15th – 17th December and will culminate with an exhibition in Central London on the December 18th.
This 48 hour event will showcase the state of the art in design, engineering and collaborative techniques for the Architectural Engineering and Construction industry. It will bring together hundreds of engineers from scores of companies working in different disciplines, languages, cities, countries and time zones onto a single real-time project. Bll 2009’s unique format will re-define the standards expected from design competitions by creating the worlds largest Building Information Model (BIM). For this years challenge, a hypothetical site set amongst man-made islands in the Thames Estuary has been established as the setting for a mixed use scheme comprising hotels, offices, residential and retail space. Teams from all over the world will be allocated a unique ‘site’ and design brief and will contribute to an ambitious master plan for 48 hours.
No Ordinary Competition
Build LONDON Live is a collision of master-planning, engineering and political ideas for regeneration. It uses the latest Building Information Modelling (BIM) techniques to create detailed designs and proposals. Teams will submit an unprecedented amount of content including 3D models, imagery, movies, analysis results and show how traditional design methods are enhanced by BIM to everyone’s benefit.
December 15th 12.00 GMT Competition commences
December 17th 12.00 GMT Competition is closed
