Last week saw the annual conference of the Association of Interior Specialists conference, however now they have merged with the FPDC (Federation of Plastering and Dry-lining Contractors) it is the AIS FPDC conference…… Apparently they are now working on a new organisation name.
I first spoke at an AIS conference back in 2012, my talk then – “BIM, better ways to count”. Since then the AIS has been one of the few trade associations to really push BIM awareness to their members and should be applauded.

Virtual Project CPD – Kent County Council
In the early days of its development BIM Academy designed the Virtual Project course to build on the success and experience they had gained working on a number of international competitions. The course was designed to span over three days, bringing together team members who could quickly asses their capability and responsibility on a BIM project within a risk free environment. For me it had an instant and obvious appeal as it should work for team members with differing levels of expertise without the usual penalties associated with making a mess of things.
