Principals' Stream

For many years, RTC has offered a tailored program exclusively for Principals. Now expanded to two days (Thursday 16 and Friday 17 May) this stream of BIM information and discussion is aimed at owners and managers of consultancy practices, developers, contractors, project managers, building owners and facilities managers - anyone seeking to understand the profound changes brought about by the advent of Building Information Modelling. 

The stream will focus on the business aspects of BIM: harnessing the power of Revit and a host of alternative and complementary applications, to produce a superior outcome at a lower cost. We cover the legal aspects of BIM; government mandates; the current state of BIM in the construction and property industries; professional trends; implementation strategies; BIM standards; and exciting new modes of facilities procurement including Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). See how BIM is fast becoming a prerequisite for involvement in large parts of the design, construction and property sectors, and learn how to embrace this change for your organisation.

If you are interested in the financial and quality benefits that come from using BIM processes well, then this is for you! Understand the powerful new collaboration techniques facilitated by BIM, and changing workflows, roles and responsibilities and delivery timelines. Don't be left behind in this industry transformation: Cut through the jargon and the hard-sell, and find out what the world of BIM is really about.

The two-day stream offers a comprehensive program including the following presentations:
