New beginnings in a post-pandemic era

Online 14-15 April 2021

Welcome to Nordic BIM Summit 2021

One of the largest BIM events in Europe within building and infrastructure

The theme "New beginnings in a post pandemic era", is all about unleashing the potential of digitalisation while having an emphasis on the necessary. What have we learned during 2020, what will we bring with us to the new normal, how can we make use of software and technologies to ensure focus on our assignments as architects, engineers or designers?
We invite you to two inspiring days with a lot of interaction, innovation and sharing of best practises where we look forward to welcome new beginnings!

Do you have any questions, please contact us!

We invite you to two inspiring days with a lot of interesting keynote speakers, interaction, innovation and sharing of best practises. 

This schedule could be subject to change.

Day 1

  • The total impact of the pandemic is yet to be seen. However, we can already now see signs on new requirements on housing, offices, public buildings (schools, hospitals). We are looking for more space at home for work and studies, people who can will most probably continue to work from home. Offices and schools will need to consider how to increase distance between workspaces, meeting rooms and areas for socialisation.
  • Now we see projects starting to realize that were planned prior to the pandemic, will that change how they are being concluded and what will that mean in practice?
  • How will our cities develop? Will urbanization slow down and what will smart cities mean in a post pandemic era?
  • Our keynote speaker will interact with the panel on a couple of perspectives; how agile can you be in a project adapting to a new normal, how will/ can legislation speed up with new requirements meeting the demands on new safety measures, urbanization – what will happen, will more people move to smaller cities or is this just a temporary trend?
  • Architects, engineers, contractors and other Industry peers request efficient tools and software as they are meeting increased demands on efficient deliveries. At the same time they want to focus on their profession, their core tasks, they have to adapt to industry’s digitalisation development and maturity.
  • Our industry is essential to our lives but also our economy. At what extent can we drive innovation, new technologies and become more sustainable? Or will it be challenged by new players?
  • Will the transformation accelerate? And what does it take from all us to be part of this change (sw, new tech, training / education / business models / legislations)
  • Our keynote speaker will discuss how we together can make the changes needed. How to address the importance and difficulties with changing business models while delivering on new requirements and legislations for sustainability,
  • Our industry has a unique opportunity to impact the environment for real. As an industry we can also impact from different perspectives, i.e. when sourcing materials, how to optimize supply chains and by reducing waste and at the same time lower carbon footprint. On site how to improve safety and working environment are also critical factors.
  • The demands on sustainability are also clear both from customers and regulators. However, there are questions raised if the public is prepared to pay the price.
  • What can be learned from companies that have made investments by creating organisations focusing on sustainability?
  • Covid-19 is believed to accelerate the transformation of the industry. There are many signs that we use digital tools a greater extent but still our industry is lagging behind.
  • This keynote will share best practices from different industries and perspectives. Some examples, how can owners analyse the value from investments in digitalisation, how do you move from test projects to digital becoming a natural part of your daily work.

Time for some music and mingle.
