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 Redon 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.

Following this presentation, the audience will be invited to pose questions to a panel of BIM experts, including Natacha and members of the BIM working group of the APM PMC SIG. Networking opportunities will follow the board discussion.

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.


What is BIM, and how can it help you if you are involved in project management? How can the maturity model be applied to projects in the both the public and private sector? How can we distill all the information from within the various BIM publications into a concise project management guide? Do wehave the skills to support such a remarkable step change in the way projects are delivered? What can the APM do to assist the project management profession in applying BIM methodologies, processes and tools?

The APM’s Planning Monitoring and Control SIG has kicked off a BIM Working Group to answer these questions, and more. We will:-
- produce a series of topical articles for publication in Project Magazine;
- produce a white paper for publication on the APM website; and
- produce the BIM chapter for the APM Body of Knowledge.

We want to kick this work off by inviting members from across the APM Community to join us. We are keen to engage with as many of you as we can, so membership to the working group is open to anyone able to commit to a minimum of four meetings per year and the contribution to the above outputs.

Please contact us on pmcsig@apm.org.uk.
