Biography Daniel England.
Dan climbed out of a muddy footing trench at the age of 15 and decide he loved building. Buildings were to be his career one way or another but perhaps something a bit easier than digging foundations in wet clay by hand. He therefore decided to study Architecture and has been practicing as an Architect for more than 20 years.
The advancements in IT and the development of BIM have enthralled him for the past decade. He joined PRP, a multidisciplinary practice focussing on Housing, in 2012 as a BIM Manager. He has given a number of presentations as part of the BIM 4 Housing group.
His ambition is to get his fellow Architects and Consultants to go home to their loved ones on time. To him every superfluous mouse click is a wasted age, every second watching the screen update a squandered eon. He delights in improving the efficiency of his colleagues’ production of documentation and visualisations so they spend more time improving the design and wafting about on folding bicycles pick up awards.
And, don’t get him started on his thoughts about people who don’t use keyboard shortcuts (the ‘one arm bandits’ as he calls them) or he’ll tell you of his suggestion to half their salaries as they’re only employing half their available limbs.
