Eurovia Contracting’s Digital team is supporting Nottingham Trent University to bring BIM (Building Information Modelling) to life. Anja Reid, Eurovia UK’s Student/Graduate Scheme Manager and David Jones, Senior Lecturer in Construction Management at the University, have worked together to allow Eurovia to help translate the theory of BIM to live examples from Eurovia Contracting sites.
Philip Reid, Eurovia Contracting’s Digital Construction Manager is supporting Nottingham Trent University to develop content for their BIM lectures – part of a Construction Technology module which is accessed by a range of degrees including Quantity Surveying and Construction Management. He has produced several videos; outlining our approach to BIM in accordance with ISO19650, how we are using 3D models and drone images to help improve safety, quality and productivity, and examples from recently completed projects within the Contracting business.
David Jones said “[This content is] … just what I was after. I think it will really help to start to link [students] basic understanding of what BIM is to how it can be used in many different ways – and the different reasons for using it. I like the way you link to people working on site / coordinating works – I spend most my time telling our [students] that BIM is not just for designing buildings.”
