Daniel Frawley is part of a new body called the Emirates BIM User Group which is aimed at introducing the software to those who have just started out in the business or wish to further their experience.
He said: “I have set up a user group to give people the chance to learn about what BIM offers, in co-operation with some of the universities in the region. The events we hold are intended to give skills to those on the ground. There is a similar scheme in operation in Australia called TalkBIM.
“The universities, in my opinion, do not really know how to deliver students who are ready for the workplace. That is why they have got involved with us. The subjects on a curriculum take two or three years to get approved and BIM is such a fast growing technology there are new developments every six months so clearly new ways of learning are necessary.”
