Ballast Nedam to organize a 4D BIM program at GEO|Design+BIM 2018

Amsterdam: GEO| Design+BIM, a platform that highlights the use of geospatial data analytics and Building Information Modelling (BIM) in asset spatial design, construction, and operation and maintenance, is pleased to announce Ballast Nedam as a Content Partner. The event is scheduled to take place from 1-2 November 2018, in Amsterdam.

Ballast Nedam, a Dutch-based development and construction company, will be organizing a program on Virtual Building at the event. The program will focus on the importance of 4D-scheduling tools for virtual building in infrastructure and building sector. Paulus Eckhardt, Director Design & Engineering at Ballast Nedam, will be one of the speakers, along with a few other industry players.


Eckhardt explains “The next step in reducing failure costs and increasing efficiency within the construction industry is to first digitally build the asset. Not only is the final situation important, the phasing of the construction technology and all temporary works, will especially improve collaboration between all parties involved in the building process. At GEO|Design+BIM we will discuss this way of working, because we still have to make big steps towards creating the willingness of people involved in construction to embrace the digital twin!”

“Partnership with Ballast Nedam is a new approach that we adopted this year as an endeavor to enrich our program offerings at GEO|Design+BIM. The conference is on its way to be a true business user platform, and we’re beyond excited to present a more content-rich and user-focused conference to our audience,” adds Anamika Das, Vice President, Outreach and Business Development at Geospatial Media and Communications, the conference organizer.
