Expert to share BIM insights at LuxLive

Expert and architect Andrzej Szumilas, BIM project manager at LUG, will host a daily BIM Academy seminar

ARCHITECTURAL and infrastructure lighting specialist LUG Lighting will share its capability, knowledge and insights into the application of BIM with lighting.

Expert and architect Andrzej Szumilas, BIM project manager at LUG, will host the daily BIM Academy seminar which will seek to shed light on this most current of topics. Prior to this he has worked as a BIM coordinator within the architectural practice TP Bennett in London, and has also been an application engineer within an Autodesk Platinum Partner practice. In his seminar Szumilas will use a real life project, a complete shopping centre project, Gliwice Poland, to address the following:

  • Managing digital models of light fittings in Project Information Model BIM methodology and modelling
  • Graded levels of definition in the digital project cycle
  • Luminaire dos and don’ts
  • Product life-cycle in AIM

The BIM session covers the full process of lighting design with respect to both BIM and best practice. We will show how to handle digital luminaire models in Building Information Model and Common Data Environment. Some key words from BIM vocabulary like PIM, AIM, LOD will be put to the test against real life situations. A few ‘tips n’ tricks’ from BIM Authoring Tools will be revealed. Attendees will also learn about life-cycle of the luminaire in respect to Asset Information Model.


  • Andrzej Szumilas will speak on BIM and lighting at 1pm on days one and two in the Tech Theatre on the mezzanine level. The LuxLive 2018 exhibition takes place on Wednesday 14 November and Thursday 15 November 2018 at ExCeL London. The show includes no fewer than eight conference tracks.
