Jon Melchin, FSR’s director of architectural development, will share his in-depth expertise on Building Information Modelling (BIM) with delegates at the second Smart Building Conference. The event, which debuted in January in Amsterdam, will be held at Dexter House in London on 15 October.
The Smart Building Conference comprises an audience of building systems professionals including architects, facilities managers, consultants, developers and other groups who gather to enhance their knowledge and skill in integration, room and building control systems, fire and security, CCTV, networking, energy management, lighting and more.
Melchin’s presentation – Building Information Modelling: Designing better, faster and smarter with BIM – will explore BIM – a 3D design, modelling and simulation technology that has changed the way architecture is practised. Melchin will discuss how BIM is becoming increasingly instrumental in smart building initiatives and highlight its ability to draw various parties together to share information about a building, its components and the energy efficiency performance assessment of the intelligent environment. The session is scheduled for Tuesday, 15 October at 2:30 PM.
“Being asked to present at this prestigious event is a significant honour,” said Melchin. “The Smart Building Conference brings together professionals from various but complementary fields to provide an incomparable resource pool for those responsible for the future of Smart Buildings. I’m more than delighted to be able to make a contribution.”
Melchin, an accomplished speaker and a Passport Provider with the American Institute of Architects Continuing Education System (AIA-CES), works nationally with the architectural and design community to facilitate the specification of FSR products.
