When it comes to Building Information Modelling (BIM) processes the questions are endless… But where do you go to find the answers?
The Digital Transition is a podcast series created to assist those tasked with implementing Digital Strategies. The goal: To create higher quality outcomes in the development of the built environment by unravelling the masses of misleading information and confusing terminology. Each episode focuses on a key topic of interest and invites a different Industry leader to contribute their expertise. Together the episodes create a series of conversations, sharing knowledge and experiences to support you on your own Transition.
Asset management - Airport scale at Brisbane Airport with Greta McNelis
The Digital Transition Podcast powered by NBS. In this episode, I talk to Greta McNelis the BIM and GIS Manager from Brisbane Airport Corporation about how they are embracing BIM processes as a major asset owner to benefit across multiple business units. Hear how they have benefited from capturing accurate as-built information through GIS and laser scanning to assist in managing their assets and provide a base for their training simulations.

Modernising the archaic processes with model connected specifications with Dr Stephen Hamil
The Digital Transition Podcast powered by NBS. In this episode, I talk to Dr Stephen Hamil about the importance of Specifications on a project and how the process of creating a specification typically hasn’t changed much over the last few decades. This is until NBS developed the NBS Chorus product which provides a direct link/connection between your specification and your BIM in your BIM authoring tool. Hear about how this new process of specification creation can reduce risks of conflicts in your practice and save you time managing this critical deliverable.
Level of Information Need with Dr Marzia Bolpagni
The Digital Transition Podcast powered by NBS. In this episode, I talk to Dr Marzia Bolpagni from Mace about the recently released Standard EN 17412-1:2020 Building Information Modelling – Level of Information Need – Part 1: Concepts and principles. Learn about the principles of the standard and how everyone in the supply chain needs to consider why they need information for, what information they need, when they need it, and who is required to deliver it. This standard is an important one to add to your library and apply on your projects to achieve greater efficiencies in the specification of your information requirements.

Creating a digital thread through GS1 with Bonnie Ryan
The Digital Transition Podcast powered by NBS. In this episode, I talk to Bonnie Ryan about the issues of silos in the construction industry and how by learning from other industries like retail, transport and logistics, and the car industry, products and materials can be tracked, logged and stored in a database. These databases can inform an asset owner of issues with the products and materials in their building. How can this be standardised across the globe? GS1 through their work over the last 40-50 years have a solution that can be expanded to meet this need.

Back to the Future in BIM with Don Cameron
The Digital Transition Podcast powered by NBS. In this episode, I have Don Cameron back behind the mic to join me to discuss the last 9 months and what it could mean for the future. I take the pessimistic view on the future while Don takes the optimistic one. I come up with a new role for industry and suggest that we have been going about our pitch on digital all wrong and we need to change the way we promote and sell digital processes and the value of data. I don’t think we solve any problems in this episode but put forward questions for listeners to seriously consider moving into 2021 and beyond.

The Importance of Standardised Information with Lars Christian Fredenlund
The Digital Transition Podcast powered by NBS. In this episode, I talk to Lars Christian Fredenlund from CoBuilder about the importance of standardised information. Until recently, there weren’t any standards in place to enable data to be described consistently. We will discuss the importance of ISO23367:2020 and ISO23368:2020 and also how organisation GS1 can provide a positive impact on the tracing of products throughout the lifecycle of an asset.

Best in genre for BIM and Asset data management
This podcast is ten steps ahead of most Architectural practices and is active in creating alliances and solutions for Asset owners. So much more than an Architectural perspective, this is an exceptional resource for clients and owners.
Very relevant to the architectural profession
Interesting podcast from a team that looks like they are keen to progress BIM.
Very insightful and well worth a listen.
Looking forward to more episodes!
