Ridge Introduces New BIM Management Service Offering
12.7.2016

Ridge and Partners LLP are pleased to announce a new service offering, BIM Management. This is a new proposition which will be offered alongside our other multi-disciplinary services.

We have two Associates who will be leading this new venture, Andrew Stanford and Brent Rees. Over the coming week they will be releasing updates through  a blog to share their opinions of BIM and innovation within the construction industry.

Take a look at their introductions below:

Andrew Stanford

“We shouldn’t be trying to adopt BIM for BIM’s sake but we should be asking ourselves, where’s the value for our clients andhow can BIM be used as a delivery mechanism to enale our clients to achieve these goals.”

Andrew is a Chartered Architectural Technologist who is dedicated to digitising the construction industry. He also has a desire to be a future business leader and is currently mid-way through an MBA which he is studying at Warwick Business School due for completion in 2017.

Hi previous project where he implemented BIM for a tier 1 contractor was awarded the Constructing Excellence South West BIM project of the year for 2016. He also sits on the Special Issues Task-force for the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists disseminating best practice information around BIM to its member and has recently set up their BIM Q&A facility.

Brent Rees

“As a design and delivery aid, the benefits of adopting BIM processes are tangible. Of greater importance and value though is extending the benefits beyond the life of the project in order to realise whole-lifecycle efficiencies.”

Brent is also a Chartered Architectural Technologist with experience across a wide variety of construction sectors and an active participant within the BIM community. He is closely involved with the BIM Regions UK network and chair of the BIM Regions Oxford group, which delivers events and information on the latest developments in the digital construction space. In addition to this Brent has published a number of BIM opinion articles, is professionally certified in the use of BIM authoring tools, and it a positive and pro-active advocate of utilising digital technology and processes to aid the delivery and operation of the built environment.
