As part of EuHPN’s regional seminar series, TNO (Netherlands) hosted a one-day event on Building Information Modelling (BIM) in Leiden on 17th April 2014. Participants attended from the UK, the Republic of Ireland, Sweden, Norway and the Netherlands. They were national and regional public administrators, architects, hospital designers, planners, construction company professionals and representatives of hospital or healthcare organisations.
The aim of the seminar was to share knowledge about the current state-of-the-art use of BIM in the healthcare sector, and one particular focus was to explore the advantages (or disadvantages) of using what is termed ‘open’ BIM – models and data that are freely available for all to use. The event was also designed to critically influence current BIM projects such as STREAMER.
This page provides links to the presentations that formed the core of the seminar and the discussions between participants. A report of the event is available to download here.
