Forget the return of X Factor UK last weekend and the debut of new judges Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora, BIMcrunch has the latest on a much more exciting panel.

Asite‘s Build New York Live competition takes place across September 21st-23rd, and the judging line-up with the difficult task of deciding who is the best of the competition have been named.

Representing the United States on the panel is Richard Garber, Partner at GRO Architects. Based in New York City, Garber knows the site for the competition very well, and will know the architecture of the city better than anyone. Should a submission not mesh well with the NYC aesthetics, he will surely be the man to point it out.

UK members on the panel are Turner & Townsend‘s George Mokhtar and AECOM‘s David Philp. Mokhtar is an Associate Director at T&T and his past working for BIM Academy and as a lecturer at Northumbria University means that he has a wide range of experience making him perfect for the role. He knows all about collaboration and modelling, ensuring he will have the perfect background to officiate the judging process.

Next on the judging table is David Philp, Head of BIM at the BIM Task Group. The first of two returning judges from Build Newcastle Live, David works and speaks internationally, and is one of the most notable names in Building Information Modelling. With professionals taking part from all over the world, David’s travels and commitments will enable him to measure the participants’ success in the best way possible.

Finally, Asite’s COO Nathan Doughty is also returning, and he rounds out the impressive panel.

We will have more news on Build New York Live soon, including information on the project brief. Until then, visit the official website and Twitter account.
