Gabriele Eccher

About the Speaker

Gabriele Eccher graduated as a structural engineer from University of Trento, Italy and completed post graduate studies with PhD in computational mechanics for coupled instability of thin-walled steel structures at the University of Sydney, NSW, Australia. He joined SWS Engineering in 2010 and since then has specialized in tunnelling and underground technology, research and development. Since 2014 Gabriele has managed the Research and Development department at SWS’s head office in Trento, Italy. His main areas of interest are related to data collection and analysis, integration of design processes, BIM technologies and coordination of IT projects supporting underground engineering.


About the ITA Session

ITA Building Information Modelling in Tunnels Workshop

The ITA recognises the importance of BIM and the rapidly changing manner in which the creation and management of a real time, consolidated 3D/4D or 5D information model can allow best-possible project decision making before costs are incurred. These models are now much more than 3D animation, but intelligent constructs with embedded information that can be shared between stakeholders throughout an organisation, with the possibility to provide significant benefit in each phase of a tunnel project lifecycle.

The workshop will focus on current trends in the application of BIM technology to tunnelling, to allow teams to reduce direct costs, improve efficiency and reduce risk. Presentations being delivered by design, construction and project professionals and are not aligned with particular software.

No registration required to attend.
