Now on to our sixth episode is a BIM Paraxis episode that has been curated by our BILT Academy correspondent Julia and her topic of decentralization, which was so big we needed two full episodes to cover it. (Part 1). In this month’s podcast, the second part will cover the practical side of the decentralization topic.
For this episode, Julia has recruited the help of guest co-host Graham Stewart. As a longtime friend and supporter of the BILT Academy, Julia asked Graham to come on board for this episode to assist us in coming to grips with this topic as he has had the most experience with the subject between the three of us (Julia, Carl and Graham). Graham has for years has worked with COBie a common decentralized database used in the AEC industry currently.
Graham is a Director specializing in BIM Strategy & Implementation with over 30 years’ experience in AEC including over 25 years’ experience using various BIM platforms and has an MSc in BIM Management, based the Glasgow, Scotland, UK. In 2017, Graham founded Digital Guerrilla Consultancy Ltd, Scotland’s 1st Digital Information Management Consultancy, and is also an Associate Tutor and part of the Associate Consultancy Program at BSi delivering their BIM training courses across the UK and a part-time lecture at Glasgow Caledonian University.
For this episode, Julia will be interviewing 2 new guests to the podcast and one returning guest Martin Taurer, all with expertise and experience in this month’s topic.
Mr. Heinrich Lünenschloss is the Manager of Digital Construction and BIM at the construction company Köster Gmbh in Germany and holds a master’s degree in engineering. Next to being a board member of the buildingSMART chapter in Germany, Heinrich develops progressive workflows in his company and remains at the forefront of establishing them.
Martin is an architect and head of technology at LivingRoomCraftZ in the Netherlands.
Martin’s profound and in-depth knowledge of multi and interdisciplinary processes and technologies not only keeps him in demand at various educational institutes but as well in the field of practice. As a solution-oriented person, Martin seeks practical ways of solving problems. According to his credo: If the hammer is too small, take a bigger one.
John’s interest in the construction industry started from an early age thanks to his family’s sub-contractor business. He followed this dream and trained as an Architect in UWE, Bristol before his passion evolved to BIM and technology.
Having built solutions for Hoare Lea in the UK focusing on efficient workflows, John co-founded his first startup in 2014; a technology focused BIM consulting business. Fast forward a few Research and Development focused years BIMLauncher was conceptualized; a company focused on delivering solutions to industry issues surrounding inefficient workflows between construction project management applications.
