Using BIM technology allows for substantial savings to be achieved when realising investments and during their further utilization. According to british estimates, where BIM designing is mandatory in public expenditures, implementing this technology may cut construction times in half and take off a third of its costs. A virtual model of the building covering industry issues becomes an initial implementation of the investment and allows for elimination of errors at the very beginning of its existence.
The FRESH LOOK AT BIM conference is meant to popularize BIM technology in Poland. The speakers are Polish and international specialists who deal with BIM issues on a daily basis. Among them are experts from companies such as GRAPHISOFT, ndBIM Virtual Building, M.A.D. Engineers and Graph’it Studio. The educational and scientific event is aimed at anyone interested in the subject of BIM, including architects, engineers, designers, developers, property administrators, officials, executors and construction material manufacturers, as well as academic professors and students. The organizers of the conference would like to invite everyone interested in using the newest information technologies in preparing and managing investment processes.
The conference will be translated live.

Paweł Wierzowiecki, MBA, is an experienced construction engineer and a recognised designer. He holds significant practical experience in managing large project teams delivering both general construction and infrastructure solutions. He is a valued consultant to many construction companies and businesses from a range of industrial sectors, offering services in the property and real estate market. For many years, he has been taking an active part in educating emerging engineering teams, both as a lecturer at technical universities and as a consultant for innovative academic projects. In his professional life, he has designed over 2.5 million square metres of commercial and public service space, and delivered several infrastructure projects.
Paweł Wierzowiecki, leveraging his experience in handling national and international contracts, is a firm proponent of the IPD philosophy (Integrated Project Delivery), which relies on integration of human, technological, commodity resources and business practices during the investment process. Thanks to IPD, investment stakeholders realise measurable gains out of the skills, experience and knowledge of all members of this process. The aim of IPD is optimizing efficiency in all phases of the investment: designing, building and exploiting. The basic tool of the IPD concept is BIM technology – Building Information Modelling.
He graduated from the Construction, Architecture and Environmental Engineering Department of Poznan University of Technology and obtained an MBA degree (GFKM / RSM Erasmus University program).
In his private life, he is a traveller enchanted with Asia, and an ocean-loving yachtsman.
Pawed Łaguna (IARP architect, SARP member) gained experience by designing complicated office buildings, medical centers and residential structures for commercial clients. As part of his cooperation with the main executor of the Złota 44 apartment building he was responsible for the coordination of a multi-industrial execution project of a 200-metre high-rise in the center of Warsaw. His three years working in the international JACOBS company at the Design Manager position have resulted in nearly 50 completed structures for corporate entities in Central and Eastern Europe. Paweł Łaguna is a fan of introducing modern IT tools in order to efficiently manage the full investment cycle.
The strategy of managing information on buildings and Infrastructure
Antonio Meireles has a degree in Civil Engineering (2005), a MBA in Corporate Management (2007) and currently he is finishing his PhD Thesis in Construction Management. He is focused on the improvement of the construction industry by the development of knowledge, as well as efficient and innovation-driven processes, through ndBIM Virtual Building, his international consultancy and services company. For the last 10 years, he has been empowering stakeholders of the Construction Industry to use BIM, IPD and Lean Construction methods so as to deliver integrated construction services more efficiently and more productively.
Antonio Meireles advocates the use of collaborative tools because he believes that these methods exponentially increase productivity and efficiency, then saving owners money and earning higher profits for others. He is leading the BIM Management Institute, an initiative where most of the Portuguese construction companies, designers, owners and universities participate with the goal of disseminate the advantages of BIM and boost its use. He is also the coordinator of subGroup of the BIM TaskGroup in Portugal regarding the standardization and legislation of BIM in Portugal. He has been invited to be a keynote speaker at several international conferences all around the globe and his work has been a case study for several publications and whitepapers. Invited teacher in different courses all around Portugal and Brazil.
Before that he was a Structure and MEP consultant and he lead the challenge of bringing Innovation and BIM to the agenda of each worker of Mota-Engil Engenharia, an international construction company, leader in Portugal. The work developed in Mota-Engil and that started 10 years ago was pioneering on the integration of BIM in a builder being consultant in the developing of the first BIM software for construction management.
He has developed several studies and experiences on the best approach to implement an innovation system in a traditional and geographically dispersed company. InnovCenter, the company’s Innovation Platform, is one of his most successful results and was recognized has one of ten recipients awarded the Nielsen Norman Group (NN/g) 2011 Intranet Design Award.
BIM 5D, a change in the actual paradigm! Open BIM and the benefits for the industry
David Petri is both an architect and a BIM manager working in a well-known hungarian project office, KÖZTI Architects & Engineers. This is what David had to say about his career so far, as well as the subject of his presentation:
“As a student of architecture I have been involved in a couple of design projects at the largest and most prestigious design firm in Hungary, called KÖZTI. As a professional architect I started working in 2006 for the studio led by György Skardelli. In 2010 due to the financial crisis reaching Hungary I chose to move to a totally different sector. I wanted to try myself out in the IT sector, the software development area, getting as much knowledge as possible. I knew that I have a real passion for architecture so my aim was to implement the experience later on in architectural design. In 2013 I continued my architectural career at the same studio as before and shortly became a BIM Manager. My role is to work as a BIM manager on several design projects, for example on the largest sport complex in Hungary, the National Stadium named after Ferenc PUSKÁS. In my presentation I would like to highlight the importance of BIM and OPEN BIM through the example of our 140.000m2 stadium project. I am going to show how we struggled and solved key areas like model and information sharing by different file formats with fellow engineers, and how we gained benefits from digital Clash detection and Quantity take off. I would like to share our experiences on our software behavior with programs such as ARCHICAD by GRAPHISOFT, or BIMsight by TEKLA and VicoOffice by Trimble”.
