Welcome to my world of innovation in the Built Environment.

I have been working in the construction industry for the majority of my working life and this web site has been set up to give you a flavour of some of the projects that I have been involved in both professionally and as a keen, but slightly mad, DIY fanatic.  Working as I do for part of Innovate UK in the Knowledge Transfer Network I believe that we are on the cusp of some enormous technological changes and subsequent social challenges.

A New Role 07/09/2015

Having spent 20 years working for the same company and at the tender age of 57 I have accepted a new job with KTN Ltd, the Knowledge Transfer Network as a Knowledge Transfer Manager. A fancy name for an old fashioned idea of networking. I will be specialising in Digital Construction which is primarily about BIM. Building Information model or Building Information Modelling. You can find a good government link to what it is all about here.



BIM is a natural progression in the way we build to incorporate all the construction details in a 3D model. The advantages in the construction process are vast. Working with a complete supply chain in a collaborative and joined up way should give us better buildings with fewer faults in the construction process. BIM has been slightly hijacked by the software companies so that many people think it is just a 3D model. It is so much more than this.

I was fortunate to attend the recent RICS BIM conference.  Lots of really interesting BIM stuff going on across the industry.  There was an interesting line-up of speakers for this event which was chaired by David Philp Head of BIM UK BIM task group.

RICS BIM Conference 07/03/2016 Realising the benefits of BIM in practice.



The conference posed a number of interesting questions with a lot of detailed answers.  Speakers at the event looked at aspects as diverse as legal, a contractors view from BAM,  a clients/operators prospective from HS2, BIM as a tool to record historic sites for conservation.  Perhaps the most useful section was the progress from the KT4BIM group who are doing a virtual BIM project through all the stages & process.


All in all a very useful day where I came away more learned and better connected.
