Building Information Modelling (BIM) is becoming a prerequisite for most major new contracts in the Gulf and the MEP Conference Qatar 2015, to be held at the Doha Grand Hyatt on May 25, will bring the latest developments into focus for delegates.

Speakers will include Dr Ahmed Alaa, regional vice chairman of Ashrae; Matthew Kitson, regional director, Hilson Moran; Bill Jolly, director of MEP and sustainability at Ramboll; George Kenich, general manager, MEP at Al Futtaim Engineering and Ali Al Suwaidi, vice president at Idama.

The one-day annual conference will bring together the public and private sectors to share project updates, contract and tender information and will provide a key platform for networking.

BIM will be highlighted in a number of presentations and its importance to future tendering in the region will be explained.

Matthew Kitson will give the latest insider information about 20 Fenchurch Street in London, one of the largest new office buildings in the City to employ BIM from design stage right through to its integration in facilities management for the signature building.

It is being used in the Qatar National Museum project and is set to become standard practice in future government contracts in Qatar.
