COMIT to look at information mobility

For the past two years, one of my November event highlights has been the annual conference of COMIT (Construction Opportunities for Mobile IT). Building information modelling (BIM) and mobile IT remain themes for 2013’s edition, to be held at London’s Institute of Physics on 7 November 2013.

Bentley ProjectWise to get more ‘cloudy’ with Bentley Connect

I first encountered Bentley ProjectWise when writing a case study about its use by London-based DLG Architects in 1999, and the product has been in my peripheral vision almost ever since.

COMIT #MobiBIM conference pushes cloud-based data and tools

I attended COMIT‘s latest conference, on BIM and Mobility, at London’s Building Centre on Thursday, and tweeted a lot of the event highlights (my ‘co-tweeter’ Su Butcher helpfully created a great Storify stream where you can see the event unfold). As usual with COMIT events, the conference was a healthy mix of construction people and technology …

#MobiBIM 2012

One of the best events I attended last year was a conference on building information modelling (BIM) and mobile IT, organised by COMIT (Construction Opportunities for Mobile IT).

COMIT–where BIM meets augmented reality, point clouds and QR Codes (among other things)

Two weeks ago, I mentioned COMIT, Construction Opportunities for Mobile IT, and its forthcoming conference on how smart mobile devices can be used to add value to BIM. Since then (last week), I have attended the COMIT community day and AGM (held at BSRIA, Bracknell) and, from the round-table discussions, it was clear that some …
