Welcome to my world of disconnected environmental, community and family projects.
I have been working in the renewable energy field for a number of years 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.

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.
Over the coming weeks I will update this blog with more details of what I see as the key components & pitfalls facing the UK construction industry as we all start to get to grips with BIM and digital construction.
