Rob Charlton representing BIM at Kent Construction Expo

Rob Charlton 2

The CEO of one of the UK’s most influential Building Information Modelling brands is to represent the BIM community at a top construction event.

There is just six days to go until Space Group‘s Rob Charlton is to take to the rostrum at the Kent Construction Expo 2014 event in Maidstone on October 8th.

Rob’s presentation, titled Construction 2.0, will address how the BIM sector can balance the increase in work alongside the severe lack of qualified professionals in the business. Cultural and procurement issues affecting change and how Building Information Modelling can solve those problems will also be discussed.

Speaking to BIMcrunch, Rob commented: “Whether it be retraining the Babyboomers, explaining the benefits of BIM to Generation X or making sure Generation Y have the correct education to cope with the future, BIM is here to stay and the construction industry must do all that it can to make sure everyone is on the same page.

“I’m looking forward to not only representing Space Group, but also the entire BIM community and hopefully encourage more construction companies to get with the times and embrace this technological present and future process.”

Charlton’s talk will commence at 10:15 and run until 11:45; we hope that is enough time to discuss BIM and the major impact it has caused!
