I am an innovation and technologies, professional. I engage with and advise clients on the ongoing evolution that is BIM & IPD. I am well regarded for my thinking on collaborative design technologies plus innovation and strategic development of BIM + IPD. I also have experience in: 3D prototyping, data management, operational efficiency/analysis, project/resource management, design centre management and lean process development.
Currently providing clients with consulting services in understanding and implementing BIM, both within their organisations and in delivering intelligent assets from the capex to opex phases.

Adopting BIM we need to make sue we are not evolving the 'delegation' of doing from the CAD Monkey to BIMpanzie.
To enact real change for the better in your company, you have to be willing to commit even if it results in some pain up front.
Many consultants make a simple but serious mistake: they assume clients, and others, understand what they’re talking about.
Years after BIM started making waves in the industry in Australia and New Zealand, it finally appears to be coalescing into a standard way of delivering assets digitally.
'We have cross-pollinated behaviours, technologies and systems from other industries to ours. Each evolution is becoming broader and more holistic than the last, and clients are ever closer to the wholesale transfer from semi-automated systems to artificial intelligence'.
I heard this joke the other day and had to laugh at how true it really is:
Question: ‘How many clients does it take to do a BIM Project?’
What is our industry doing for our clients? Are our clients getting value for money (albeit in most cases less money)?
Where do I begin with BIM? Not surprisingly, this is the first question most clients ask me. And again, no prizes for my answer which is “at the start.”
I’ll come right out and say it: BIM is pretty much Bulldust in Motion.
I’m a fan of both the original books and the movies of the Lord of the Rings, so I was excited when I could call my friends recently and say “I just drove through Hobbiton.”
To have a proper understanding of BIM, one requires an understanding of object libraries.
When initially thinking of process engineering I viewed it as the precursor, the decision making which happened to assist other disciplines along their design paths.
Let’s assume for this discussion you are aware of BIM (Building Information Modelling) and understand at a basic level its application and use within the construction industry.
