Why project managers should be leading BIM
This event is being held in Ridell Hall, Queen's University, 185, Stranmillis Road, Belfast, BT9 5EE
The UK has become a world leader in the implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM). However, there is still a misconception that BIM can be ‘bought’ as though it is piece of software.
BIM is not software, it is a process. Who better to lead this process than a project manager?
Natacha will draw on her experience implementing BIM to demonstrate that, whilst heavily utilising technology, BIM is fundamentally a process with the same features as traditional project management tools used in the construction industry.
She will explain how BIM is a powerful tool which enforces the best practices in project management. She will show delegates how this process can become a profitable service delivery method, one that future project managers may be expected to deliver as standard.
Natacha Redon is an award-winning project manager and chair of the APM North East branch. She studied technical design in France before graduating as a construction project manager from Northumbria University.
Her passion for innovation and belief in best practice has seen her at the forefront of developments in BIM, and she has worked as a BIM specialist and information manager since 2013.
After delivering projects internationally for Turner & Townsend, she now heads BIM for the northern construction consultancy Identity Consult. Her current projects include acting as BIM consultant and project manager for two universities with no prior experience of BIM, where she is tasked with demonstrating value for money to clients whilst educating them on their responsibilities.
This presentation is suitable for professionals with any level of experience.
