Construction company Woodhead have released comments from one of their two National Federation of Builders-certified BIM Champions.

Juliet Slater (above left) and Katie Stammers (above right) completed the NFB BIM Champions programme back in February and were awarded the certificates last month.

Sir Geoff Hurst hosted the presentation evening at the House of Commons, an event which celebrated the achievements of the 77 BIM Champions who worked hard to better themselves, and ultimately make a positive impact on their businesses.

As well as her position at Woodhead, Slater is also a member of the empa ii BIM working group and completing the programme will “ensure the continual improvement of the BIM service” that she will provide to her clients.

Although Woodhead are yet to carry out a BIM project, Slater says the firm are “eagerly seeking” their first BIM implementation experience so she can put her five months worth of training to the test.

“We now have a strategic understanding of what will be expected of businesses over the coming months and years in the implementation of BIM projects,” stated Slater.

“The good thing for us at Woodhead is that there are a lot of elements of BIM i.e. collaboration, working closely with the supply chain and using common data environments that Woodhead already do. As we presently have a lot of the good practices in place we don’t expect to be adjusting many of our processes in order to deliver successful BIM projects.

“We are eagerly seeking our first BIM project to get our teeth in to so we can continue to encourage partners and clients to join us in championing BIM in order to improve the way we all work.”
