The Ryder Alliance team made up of i2C, Ryder, BIM Academy, Cundall, SLR, Summers Inman and Willmott Dixon is competing in the 48-hour online Building Information Modelling (BIM) competition.

This annual international BIM competition which is recognised globally has a new location: New York City. Build New York Live, taking place from 21st – 23rd September 2015 is the latest event in the Build Earth Live series. Earlier this year we participated with a similar team and received an award.

Ryder Alliance will be competing against teams from around the world to create an innovative BIM design for significant multi-use development in New York.

The multi-disciplinary team is made up of:

›    i2C – Architect

New technology is revolutionising the way buildings are designed and how the public can be engaged in the process. By using the power of collaborative working in the cloud and international developments in interoperability, Build New York Live will demonstrate the power of these new paradigms for architecture, engineering, planning and construction. Through cloud-based collaboration, the event is open to worldwide participation.
