BIM & Data Driven design
The changing role of Architects
23 June 2018
Our Head of Technology, Allister Lewis, has recently completed a master’s degree in Building Information Modelling (BIM) Management at Middlesex University, achieving the highest award – a distinction. BIM is a process involving the structured sharing and coordination of digital and non-digital information about a building project throughout its entire lifecycle, from design to procurement, construction and operation and management stage.
Allister has gained a critical awareness of contemporary BIM issues informed by technology, research and management skills in standard and unpredictable scenarios. As part of his study, he also completed a piece of research focusing on data driven design and how this will effect the role of architects. He will be presenting this research at Digital Construction Week in October.
