DKA hosts ‘BIM in Healthcare’ event with Women in Property

10 September 2014

On a sunny evening at our canal-side studio in Bath, DKA welcomed Women in Property guests to a presentation about the use of BIM in healthcare design. Representatives from architectural, engineering and design businesses from the South West enjoyed a chance to network before informative talks by project architect Adrian Abbs and BIM Coordinator Joe Oksien explaining how DKA used BIM to enable smooth design and delivery of the recently opened Bridgwater Hospital.

DKA were also appointed to coordinate the interior design which led to writing a dementia strategy for Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. Designer and Environmental Psychologist Rebecca Furse explained the process DKA took with the team to develop this strategy, and how the 3D computer model was an essential tool for describing the interior design to the clinical staff.

The presentation was followed by a lively discussion about the current use and ongoing development of BIM in architectural design and delivery.
