Associate Director Dom Lew Shares at the Zak World of Façades
15 Jun 2018
Our Associate Director, Dom Lew, is one of the Panelists at the Zak World of Façades – Greater China Edition on the 12th of June. The panel topic is “Digital Impacts on Modern Façade Design and Construction”.
Dom and fellow panellists made interesting points with regard to the topic, where it also extended to other sub-topics, such as the benefits and challenges of BIM (building information modelling) in streamlining complex façade designs, integration of advanced technologies aiming towards performative designs, and multi-dimensional and complex façade geometries in the post-digital era.
At the end of the discussion, Dom shared his insight on the industrial application of BIM: “A car is only as good as its driver. BIM is a tool – a powerful platform – for us to build better. What we need, particularly in Asia, is a road map – the steps of implementation. The future is here – we just need to invest in it and adapt to it.”
