Sandwell Council to host a special Building Information Modelling workshop

Sandwell Council is set to host a special ‘health built environments’ Building Information Modelling (BIM) for hard facilities management (FM) workshop on Thursday 28 April.

The Council, an award-winning BIM innovator, is holding the one-day workshop in partnership with its BIM framework delivery partner, Virtechs Ltd, at its BIM technologies and skills development suite in Windmill Lane, Smethwick.





New BIM Level 2 legislation is set to change the way the health sector operates and maintains the whole-life costs of its buildings. The workshop will look at the legislation and focus on the use of 3D virtual buildings and cloud-based software for building management systems (BMS).

It will examine best use of technology to control and monitor the maintenance regimes of hospital estates and the creation of universally shared employers’ information requirements (EIR) to compliment and integrate with existing facilities management systems.

It will feature estates, assets, MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) and hospital facilities professionals working within the NHS and associated health sector. Contributors will include representatives from Sandwell and West Birmingham hospitals, Birmingham Children’s Hospital and University Hospitals Birmingham, including directors and senior hospital estates and built environment managers.


Attendees will meet senior FM decision-makers and like-minded professionals looking to optimise efficiency and get to grips with BIM. Experts will offer advice on the business benefits of BIM for FM and guidance on BIM adoption needs for 21st century health facilities. The workshop is suitable for all levels of FM job roles.

It is aimed at estates, property, assets, MEP services and facilities managers, contract decision-makers and business development professionals looking for client and health sector direction on BIM for FM applications.
