The Georgia Tech Digital Building Laboratory announces an important new workshop:

Information Technology & Project Delivery – What owners need to know

May 24 -25, 2011, Georgia Tech Global Learning Center, Atlanta

This workshop will focus on providing guidance to owners on how to utilize to best affect new technologies now available, and how to integrate these with modified project delivery approaches. This event is organized by the Digital Building Laboratory (DBL) at Georgia Tech. The DBL, directed by Chuck Eastman, has been at the forefront of developing information modeling and BIM technologies.

Bringing together owners, contractors, designers, practitioners, and software developers, this workshop will address the interface between the new technologies and the methods used to integrate the delivery of projects. This will be of particular interest to owners and others active in the fields of healthcare, hospitality, education and development. The event will examine problems now being encountered and address potential solutions in a workshop environment, drawing on actual project case studies for input. Sessions will range from using virtual models to improve early project definition to linking BIM to facility management.
