BIMWest – BIM and WA Government a huge success

Tenacious PhotographySo last Wednesday, 11th February, 200 people turned up to the Greenskills Building at Central Institute of Technology’s East Perth campus for the inaugural BIMWest event – BIM and WA Government. This fantastic turnout shows a great commitment from the Perth Architectural, Engineering and Construction community towards BIM and a general willingness in the industry to make it work.

A special thanks to our four speakers for the night – Richard Mann, Professor Peter E.D. Love, Craig Muir and Michael Ruehr, and also to the Central Institute of technology for providing such a wonderful venue.
