Going for Gold

This week I have been out and about around London - yesterday I was fortunate enough to attend the RIBA Gold Medal awards dinner (more on this later). But also we found out that our NBS service was a finalist at the Building Awards. The category we are in is BIM Initiative of the Year, sponsored by Autodesk.

The other finalists are:
  • BIMNet - A London-based networking event series. It has recently featured speakers such as Dave Philp from the Cabinet Office and our very own CEO Richard Waterhouse.
  • Costain - Engineering solutions providers who specialise in BIM.
  • Crossrail - One of the biggest UK programmes of work that has involved structured standardised data and supply-chain education
  • Levitt Bernstein Associates - Leading architectural practice and one of the organisers of BIMNet
  • Speller Metcalfe and Worcestershire County Council - Award winning construction company and BIM savvy client
We were runners up at the recent Computer Construction Awards in the BIM Product to Watch category. Fingers crossed that we maybe go one better this time. Whatever the result though, it's great to be recognised again.

Back to RIBA Gold Medal... this award was established in 1848 and is approved personally by the Queen.

The winner of the actual "gold medal" was renowned Swiss architect Peter Zumthor. A few pictures of his beautiful designs are below...
