About my job

As a part of the building information systems department, I’m involved in the development and implementation of BIM in our design process. This implies various tasks, from finding new software solutions to assure in-house user support.

The main part of the job, the so-called BIM Manager thing, is to organize the design process around chosen BIM software. Creating model templates according to the specification of the company, organizing multi-users modeling around a main model and providing users support are among the everyday tasks.

Apart from the in-house building design, we have also created BIM specific solutions for design offices or general contractors. These solutions range from synthesis and coordination at the early stage of a project to BIM facility management on existing buildings.

Finally, I try to keep in touch with all the BIM-related solutions, following the evolution of the information technology for building construction, from code-driven form-finding to on-site management using tablets and cloud-hosted solutions.

One thought on “About my job

  1. Hi,

    My name is Philip Valentine and I am a student at Loughborough University currently studying Architectural Engineering and Design Management. My final year dissertation’s title is BIM vs. Grasshopper3D: Implications to the Design Optimisation Processes.The overall aim of the project is to explore whether the use of Grasshopper3D along with BIM software platforms can optimise the design process and communication between the disciplines.

    Due to your use of Grasshopper and its plugins and Revit and the conversion between them, I would very much like you to participate in my survey and possibly a face to face or skype interview to gather information on the above topic.

    Link to survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GrasshoppervBIM

    The information provided will be treated with strict confidence and individual firms will not be identified.

    If you have any questions or queries about the intention or questions asked on this survey please contact me at p.valentine-09@student.lboro.ac.uk.

    Lastly, I would like to thank you for your participation and to let you know that I greatly appreciate your input into my project.

    Many Thanks and Regards,

    Philip Valentine
