Urbano Build is a programme of regular networking events in London aimed at architects, developers, property investors, designers, interior designers and other professionals associated with the built environment sector to make connections, gather information, create associations and find new business opportunities.

Urbano Build breakfast events are stripped down conferences, exploring interesting themes and built around great speakers, where the the focus is on networking and creating connections and opportunities. You always meet a diverse range of businesses and their representatives in a lively session of informal but facilitated networking.


The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in 2019 released the world’s first international standards for BIM, the ISO 19650-1 and ISO 19650-2. These are based on existing British standards: BS 1192 and PAS 1192-2. 

The ISO is a body that develops international standards for multiple different sectors annnounced that it had developed standards for using BIM cooperatively as part of a team.

We are thrilled that Dr Anne Kemp, Chair of the UK BIM Alliance and lead on this work, will be back at Urbano to explain the implications and opportunities these new standards offer UK companies and BIM specialists. She will be joined by Dr Marzia Bolpagni, also an Ambassador the the BIM Alliance and international standards.

** For those companies outside of the Built Environment sectors, 'BIM' offers new business opportunities to those working in VR, AR, AI, animation, filming/TV, tech etc. Book this event to find out more **

She is leading the formation of the UK BIM Alliance, involving over 50 organisations including a coalition of the institutions, BIM4 Groups and BIM Regions.  Anne is also Executive Vice-Chair of BuildingSmart UK, and serves on the International Council.  

Anne is one of the Technical Authors and Convenor for ISO19650 – which is lifting the BS/PAS1192 suite (on which the UK Government’s level 2 BIM mandate is based) to ISO and will be adopted by CEN. Anne is spear-heading negotiations across the international community in order to gain consensus around the standard and produce a new Guidance Framework.

Urbano Network is a facilitating vehicle, brokering opportunities for smaller companies to get involved, both with each other, and with larger partners. They champion quality suppliers, especially in areas such as BIM, design and new technologies."
