We kicked off 2020 in style with a packed event all about BIM and Digital Standards on January 21st.  The venue was the Celtic Manor Golf Club and our speakers delivered engaging, informative and thought provoking presentations.

Speakers included Paul Wilkinson from the UK BIM Alliance who talked us through standards and how we got to where we are today with ISO 19650.  Nick Tune took us through the Atkins journey to ISO 19650 and our final speakers were Antony Brophy and Lewis Cullinane who shared their learnings on the Taff Vale project.

You can find all the presentations below.  Make sure you follow @UKBIMA_Wales on twitter to keep up to date.
