Omnix has once again taken the lead in highlighting the importance of Building Information Modelling (BIM). This comes at a time when BIM is ready to be mandated by the Abu Dhabi Municipality across all infrastructure projects irrespective of size, stage or discipline. Over the past few months, Omnix along with Abu Dhabi Municipality and Autodesk have developed and conducted several online as well as an in-person panel discussion and roundtables that have provided Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) customers with deeper insights into making the smooth transition to BIM.
Speaking on the education process, Simran Bagga, Head of Engineering, Omnix International, said, “We understand how important it is for us to educate customers on the upcoming BIM mandates. The events that Omnix has been conducting are not only facilitating this objective but are also playing a huge part in bringing together industry leaders and peers and enabling discussions around BIM software and how the city can benefit from it.”
“The BIM focused events that Omnix has conducted have been an eye opener on how customers are keen to learn about the implications of the BIM mandates. The open discussions have thrown up hours of valid material that have addressed relevant industry challenges especially in relation to the transition phase. Other areas of interest included qualification criteria as well as best practices. As a long-standing partner for Autodesk in the Middle East, we are committed to showcase how the specific BIM solutions will help improve productivity within the construction sector and support our customers with the right training and consultation through this transition across planning and execution,” added Bagga.
Omnix has successfully organized a total of five BIM education events, three in the UAE and one each in Bahrain and Oman. The events have been extremely successful with high number of attendees including several government entities.
