I am a Facilities Management professional with 12 years’ experience delivering hard and soft FM solutions to both the public and private sector.
Having worked in roles to specify and mobilise facilities management contracts post construction and project manage major refurbishments I have a first-hand understanding of the need to integrate the built environment discipline. Integration has the potential to increase efficiency, reduce cost and provide better outcomes for occupants of the UK built environment.
Whilst there are clear advantages to using BIM during the design and construction phase I am determined to explore and realise the opportunities BIM can provide to improve the efficiency of our existing building stock.
I am keen to develop the contractual environment to allow BIM and GSL to support the built environment and promote the sector as the industry of choice for those entering the workplace. I believe the CIC BIM 2050 Working Group can lead the debate and drive the change necessary within the industry.
