Welcome to the CitA BIM Gathering website. Building on the successes of 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 this event will continue to act as a focal point for all stakeholders, both from home and abroad to come together to share their research, case studies and experiences of working with Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Digital Technologies.
Deliver increased digital adoption across the Irish construction sector. The 5th BIM Gathering conference will be hosted virtually due to the continued presence of COVID-19.
Dr. Alan Hore, TU Dublin and Co-Founder of CitA
Whilst the presence of COVID-19 remains a threat to our world we must remain resilient and be hopeful of a bright future for our sector. The construction industry has been one of the few sectors that have remained open during this challenging time. CitA are determined to continue to connect our network to innovation and new ways of working and this mission is as relevant today as it was when the network was first formed over two decades ago.
Despite the challenges we face with the continued presence of COVI-19 there is positivity with the rollout of vaccines and the response of the Irish Government to fund a Build Digital Project (2021-2026) providing coordination and leadership in order to deliver increased digital adoption across the entire Irish construction and built environment sector.
In direct response to this initiative, this event will seek to respond to the key pillars within this call which broadly follow the recommendations of the 2017 National BIM Councils Roadmap to Digital Transition.
We hope you can join us in 2021 in September when we are confident that we will be emerging from this pandemic with a renewed sense of purpose and with a new roadmap for the digital transformation of our sector.
