30 April 2020 | 10:00 - 16:00 BST York | Historic England

This briefing day will explore the challenges around the preservation of 3D digital engineering models and Building Information Models (BIM). Prior to constructing a building, a detailed model is typically created, increasingly using a BIM standard. The digital representation of a building includes both the geometry of the building but also detailed information associated with each object. The complexity of these models along with a reliance on proprietary software and file formats and a fast moving technical environment makes these models challenging to preserve.

This event will explore the challenges of preserving 3D digital engineering models and highlight some of the approaches institutions are using to ensure the models are preserved into the future.

Full programme and list of speakers will follow soon...
