First presentation:

Use of BIM Models by Wellington City Council Strategic Asset Management Planning Team (SAMP)
by Tane Dunne (Team Leader Built & Green), Matt Cantwell & Max Drake
Suitable for all levels of expertise, Full Revit & LT
Wellington City Council uses an Asset Management Information System (AMIS) to forecast budget requirements for its building maintenance and upgrade programmes.
There is currently a process to back-capture existing building stock data and WCC is looking to use BIM to automate this process and feed it into their AMIS.  Benefits include; building information available very soon after practical completion, ability to forecast maintenance tasks against specific building elements, and access to warrantee and guarantee information from a single source.
WCC is building a tool that can be adapted and will allow a 2 way link between Revit & SPM so that SPM asset condition can be transferred and shown graphically in the model.
Second Presentation:
Revit for Digital Fabrication
Grant Douglas – Makers of Architecture (MoA)
Suitable for all levels of expertise, Full Revit
Makers of Architecture are a new architectural company that are interested in the principals of making. Along with their interdependent company, Makers Fabrication, MoA are interested in digital fabrication, where data rich digital models are optimised to output data for CNC fabrication and assembly. MoA are using Autodesk Revit and Rhino as their main documentation and manufacturing tools. They are also using visual programming tools such as Dynamo and Grasshopper.
This presentation will show a brief insight into the design opportunities, efficiencies and thinking MoA use and are continuing to research and develop.
