Presentation 1: The Importance of Good Quality BIM - Johnathan Mudrovcic, Exactal (Sponsors for the evening)

Session Description:
In today’s day and age where electronic take-off has become the norm, high quality drawing file types have become imperative to Quantity Surveyors and Estimators all over the world. Speedy digital dimension data extraction in 2D and 3D means huge time savings in quantity take-off, improved accuracy and much faster response times leading to better-informed decision making. There are other improvements as well such as revision capabilities to manage scope changes, and live links between drawings and costs keeping estimates up to date to avoid “scope creep”. This presentation will explore how these new revolutions in BIM are allowing QSs and Estimators to collaborate more closely with Designers and Owners throughout design and construction, ultimately driving better cost and whole-of-life outcomes overall.
