“An essential companion to the landscape professional at any stage of their BIM journey.”
If you are involved in the built environment sector, either as a client, a contractor, manufacturer or supplier, you’ll have heard about BIM (Building Information Modelling) by now.
BIM is transforming the way we work, the way we design and the way we collaborate. BIM has special implications for the world of landscape and that’s why we particularly herald the publication of a new book this Spring 2016: BIM for Landscape.
To celebrate the launch of BIM for Landscape, the Landscape Institute is hosting a seminar examining the content of the book and exploring the consequences for the landscape profession. Speakers include expert representatives from the LI’s BIM Group, incuding Henry Fenby-Taylor, who authored the book and Alastair McCapra, Head of Public Relations at the LI, who established BIM as a significant area of work at the Institute.
Henry Fenby-Taylor, researched and compiled the book on behalf of and with extensive involvement from the Landscape Institute. The book, available from Amazon
for less than £40, looks in depth at the digital tools used in BIM projects, emphasising the information in Building Information Modelling, and the possibilities that data-rich models offer in landscape design, maintenance and management.
Billed on Amazon as “an essential companion to the landscape professional at any stage of their BIM journey”, the book will help landscape professionals understand what BIM could mean for them. It will show BIM’s potential impact on collaboration, streamlining of information processes and the improved efficiency of delivering well-designed landscape projects right-first-time, on schedule and to budget.
