BILT Europe Top Ten!

By now BILT Europe seems like a distant memory, but hopefully you have already found some ways to implement at least one thing you learnt at BILT Europe this year. But now its time to relive the memories with our most popular post of the year BILT Europe Top 10. It’s great to see this year we have a fantastic line up of local and international speakers feature in the Top 10 from the very technical to case studies of how people are operating within their projects.

1.LAB: Custom Dynamo Script Usage Tracking Nodes and Visualizing in Power BI (Timon Hazell)

2.LAB: Add some Python to your Dynamo skills! (Mostafa El Ayoubi)

3.Unlocking Revit’s Families Potential through Mathematics (Vincent Bleyenheuft)

4.MEP Refinery: Exploring Generative Design for MEP design (Alejandro Mata)

5.LCA and BIM – How to Improve Environmental Performance of Buildings (Martin Rock)

6.Landscape Architecture – A new BIM and computational design workflow (Alberto Dominguez & Alfonso Monedero)

7.Enhance your design work using XR (Johan Hanegraaf)

8.Interoperability at large: making foreign model data available in Revit (Ivan Pajares & Roberto Molinos)

9.Edinburgh St James – One Data-set used multiple ways (Clive Daniel & Chris Hughes)

10.Coordinate, Cooperate then Collaborate, a case study of 18-19 Hanover Square (Michael Boyd)

Speaker ratings are based upon the feedback we receive via the app on the session and the materials. Where speakers receive high scores but only a low number of responses, we don’t include their results. (So attendees remember next year to give your feedback on each session so we can showcase your favourite speakers). This year we had 5 speakers who fell into this category and therefore a special mention also goes to:

  • Dan Stine with his session, “Professional Lighting Content and Analysis in Revit
  • Conor Shaw with his session, “Roundtable: Climate Digest: Debating the UN climate talks and how they relate to AEC+O
  • Jostein Berger Olsen with his session, “LAB: Visual Programming in Infrastructure: Gung-ho tactics for getting stuff done
  • Jon Mirtschin with his session, “Object Libraries, why aren’t they common
  • Thomas Corrie with his session, “Further Optimizing an Architect’s Bookshelf

If you missed these sessions, remember that you can find the session materials online, particularly for more technical talks and labs the session presentations and handouts can be invaluable. Thanks to everyone who provided feedback via the app and survey! We can’t wait to see you all next year in Valencia!

COVID-19 Update

20th May 2020

DBEI has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation around the world. While some parts of our society are beginning to open in baby-steps, none of us know how the situation will develop over the coming months. As such, DBEI has now made the decision to postpone all our 2020 events to 2021 as the well-being of all our partners and participants in our events remains our utmost priority. For new details on each region please visit our event pages. We have also sent communications to all registered attendees, speakers or sponsors for all of our 2020 events.

In the interim, DBEI will be launching several exciting virtual events and webinars in 2020 to continue to deliver the same expertise, insights and knowledge to the AEC industry during these uncertain times. We also have some other exciting initiatives we are working on to continue to provide value to our community, which we look forward to sharing with you all shortly.

We wish to thank you all for your support and appreciate your patience and understanding under the current circumstances and will continue to update our website and the community if there are any changes.

If you have any concerns or questions about our events please email us at
