Northumbria University

Yesterday evening I had the pleasure of delivering a presentation to Year 2 Architectural Technician students at Northumbria University.

Northumbria is rapidly gaining a strong reputation for its work in the field of Building Information Modelling - some useful links below:

  • The Carbon Assessment Tool project - see my previous blog post.
  • Article from Northumbria's Professor Steve Lockley on BIM and Eduction
    Extract: "...Educational establishments clearly have a major role to play in this transition, they should and will seed the next generation of professionals who understand BIM as a technology that supports collaborative working. However, there are barriers to change built into our Universities and Colleges, not least of which is the entrenchment of the traditional professions. In an ideal world these institutions should be microcosms of the way we desire the industry to work in the future."
