BIM Executive Summit London Proceedings Now Available Online

Entire Set of Presentations Can Be Accessed at

Exton, Pa. - June 28, 2006 - Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced that the entire set of presentations from the recent BIM Executive Summit in London is now available at

The event was sponsored by Bentley and keynoted by Lord Sebastian Coe, chairman of the London Organizing Committee for the 2012 Olympics. Achim Menges, studio master of Emergent Technologies at the Architectural Association and recipient of the 2005 Educator of the Year BE Award of Excellence, served as host.

At the summit, prominent building industry executives from the United Kingdom, Europe, and Dubai gathered to discuss new technology-enabled design methods that are rapidly reshaping the building professions. These leaders in architecture, engineering, and construction shared Building Information Modeling (BIM) best practices and exchanged ideas in think tank sessions on where this technology and its application are headed.

The application of BIM is growing more common and critical in the practices of these firms. The extensive capabilities and significant benefits of BIM become particularly apparent in projects exhibiting comprehensive scope of design and construction, such as the development of infrastructure for Olympic venues.

At the summit, J. Parrish of Arup Sport reviewed the use of BIM for the design and operation of facilities at the Olympic Games and other major events. His presentation was followed by Lord Coe's keynote on the critical importance of infrastructure for the 2012 Olympics.

Other speakers at this full-day event included representatives from Al-Futtaim Carillion, Building Design Partnership, Dubai Festival City, Foster and Partners, Hamilton Associates, Keppie Design, PLH arkitekter, Richard Rogers Partnership, Whitbybird, and Zisman Bowyer & Partners. Topics included "BIM for Architecture," "BIM for Engineering," and "BIM in a Managed Environment."

Having these sessions available as streaming video enables architects, engineers, contractors, and owners to share in the BIM Executive Summit learning experience.
