The latest developments in engineering technology and careers were on display at The Skills Show in Birmingham, UK last month, and Morgan Sindall Professional Services (MSPS) centered their exhibition space on how BIM can lead to increased efficiency and reliability.
Exhibiting in the Future Skills Zone, MSPS’ Associate Director, David Williamson describe the experience as “invaluable”: “We feel we have a responsibility to help to ensure a pipeline of talent flows into our industry. Centering our stand around BIM worked very well to help us visually demonstrate the advanced capabilities of design within the country’s critical infrastructure.”
4D, 5D and 6D BIM capabilities were showcased at the event, with focus on MSPS’ Pudding Mill Lane project, and another in Glasgow that was perfect to explain the major benefits facilities managers can reap when utilising BIM.
70,000 people were in attendance at the event, comprising of students, young people, tutors and parents and 3,000 businesses.
“The reaction from students was exactly what we wanted,” continues David. “They were genuinely amazed at what technology in engineering is able to achieve. The discipline is not just about number crunching and complex drawings, and with software and technology advancements such as BIM there are limitless opportunities for students wishing to enter the profession in the future.”
The students were clearly impressed and intrigued by what Morgan Sindall Professional Services had to say if this picture taken at the event is anything to go by.
