BIM Inspiration Day

‘As part of the recent BIM Show Live conference in Newcastle, _Space Group, the organisers of the event decided to hold a ‘BIM Inspiration Day’ as a pre-event the day before the main conference.

A large range of schools and colleagues were invited to attend, with the aim of showcasing the best tech the AEC industry has to offer in order to promote the sector as an interesting career option and to challenge negative stereotypes of the traditional construction industry.

FARO were invited to present as part of the ‘Digital Surveying’ section of the event and also undertake live demos of our terrestrial and hand held laser scanning solutions, much to the delight of the young people attending!

The event was a great success with some very positive feedback from both attendees and speakers alike!’
