Do you really Revit?

Once upon a time a long long time ago, BILT was a conference called Revit Technology Conference and was all about Revit. Revit was still pretty new (to most of us) and perhaps somewhat shiny, Dynamo didn’t yet exist and you could come along and spend three days learning all about families, groups, scheduling and […]

Increasing demand for digital transformation is changing the interaction between the built environment and people today.

As Singapore embarks on its Smart Nation journey, the 2nd edition of Smart Buildings Conference organised by REDAS (Real Estate Developers’ Association of Singapore) and RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) will bring together over 14 prominent market leaders on 6 March 2019 and deep-dive into the government’s strategies and activities on how to transform […]

Where Have All The Classes Gone?

Well this is looks concerning. The BLUE classes represent the 2019 program (by session type) as overall percentage. And the GREEN tags represent the 2018 program. What’s seems the problem? With the exception of the Structure session type, every session type has decreased by percentage compared to 2019. Sure – Business Strategy and Leadership is […]

What’s A Manufacturer To Do?

I was recently visiting a customer who specializes in design services for labs. During the conversation they relayed their frustration with many manufacturer supplied BIM content. Some lack the basics such as providing a consistent Manufacturer Name and URL in the designated parameter fields that drives their integrated schedule. Sounds like BIM 101. It’s frustrating […]

It’s (Not) All Fun and Games

Nearly 380 abstracts were submitted for the 2019 conference (BCS, DTS, Data Day and BILT). We have around 110 slots to fill. Simple math tells us that for every accepted abstract, 3.5 people are going to be disappointed. It’s actually higher than that when you consider there’s a few sessions that’ll have the same speaker.
