Global consultancy Turner & Townsend have announced “record results” relating to turnover and operating profit for the year to April 30th, and have outlined BIM related challenges for the annum ahead.

Speaking with Global Construction Review, T&T CEO Vince Clancy discussed the firm’s reported $600m turnover and future plans for utilising BIM “technology to boost programme management performance”.

“We’re keen to develop our capability in that space in two ways,” explained Mr. Clancy. “Firstly, for global programmes we’re using global management tools that allow us to manage hundreds and hundreds of processes and the key to that is the way we use analytics and manage data and how we get real-time reporting.

“The second is BIM and analytics and how clients benefit from BIMs. We believe we’re market leaders in how clients should adapt to information models and we’re keen to invest in that space.

“Our view is that in the past BIM has been led by designers and contractors but we believe that it should be led by clients and we want to help clients to come up with strategies to get benefits from BIM for 50 years rather than just the construction period.”
