Transcript of acoustics & BIM

what can it do for us?
Improve design efficiency (reduce costs)
Improve coordination with other disciplines
Access design information more easily
Automate the design process
What is BIM?
"Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places. Building Information Models (BIMs) are files which can be exchanged or networked to support decision-making about a place."
What's that got to do with acoustics?
May 2011: UK Government Chief Construction Adviser calls for BIM adoption on UK government construction projects of £5+million, telling construction professionals to
adopt BIM or be "Betamaxed out".

June 2011: UK government announced its intention to require collaborative 3D BIM (with all project and asset information, documentation and data being electronic) on its projects
by 2016
so what do we need to do?
Learn the language of BIM and talk it to our clients
Be seen as early adopters, leading the acoustics industry
Embrace the change
Start now!
where do we start?
Learn the language:
Level 1, 2, 3
Learn the software:
navigate a model
locate important data (e.g. ceiling heights, floor finishes)
add your own information
tag partitions
assign absorption quantities to rooms
produce markups
design a building from scratch
Build up the acoustics template job-by-job
