40671530_sUK: Daikin UK has announced dates for its fourth series of Future Thinking BIM seminars.

According to Daikin UK, the CPD-accredited series, taking place in October and November, will go “beyond the buzz” of building information modelling, providing attendees with useful tools and techniques for engineering modern sustainable buildings.

The seminars will highlight how the innovative software can help meet the BSRIA ‘soft landings’ requirements, deliver better outcomes in design, construction and handover as well as inform the project lifecycle, and will also consider BIM’s future potential and how it can further transform the building services industry.

The seminars will be hosted from 6pm and include buffet, drinks and networking at Cardiff, Marriott hotel (October 14), Bristol, Radisson Blu (October 15), Birmingham, Hotel du Vin (November 10), Nottingham, Mercure City Centre (November 11), London, Ham Yard hotel (November 12), Manchester, Hilton hotel (November 18), London, Soho Hotel (November 19), Leeds, Marriott Hotel, City Centre (November 12), Southampton, Hilton hotel (November 25), Glasgow, Blythswood Square Hotel (November 26).
