About the event
Qatar BIM User Days – A unique series of events.
Qatar University, HOCHTIEF ViCon and Teesside University proudly take the initiative to facilitate modern and innovative methods in the Middle East construction industry. The focus is Building Information Modeling (BIM).
The Qatar BIM User Days focus on the entire project life cycle and address all stakeholders and all phases of a building from design over construction to operation. The ambitious aim of these unique non-profit events is to establish a knowledge platform with government, academic, research and industry experts; positioning Qatar as a thought leader in BIM education and knowledge in the Middle East, maintaining Qatar’s BIM network for students and professionals and providing an overview of Qatar’s market BIM maturity status.
The Qatar BIM User Days focus on the four major components of Building Information Modeling: process, technology, people and policy. So far each conference day provided expert presentations on one component, allowing in-depth audience discussions and participation. This year during the 5th edition 15 speakers presented local and international expertise in the four core areas of BIM roofed under the “BIM Implementation and Management” focus.

What is BIM?
BIM is a method for optimizing the design, construction and operation of building structures. The basis of BIM is formed by a 3D computer model which can be enhanced by adding further information, such as time, costs and utilization. Using BIM opens up a whole range of benefits in project business:
- Increasing design dependability and process transparency
- Improving project communication and project marketing
- Shortening construction periods
- Minimizing risks in execution and reducing construction costs
- Increasing the degree of prefabrication
- Onward use of information for building operation purposes
