BIM Development Lead
IBI Group (Nightingale Associates)
Nick has specialised in the healthcare including mental health and acute services. He has delivered these projects under a number of procurement routes including NHS LIFT, P21 & P21+. His design work has been in both refurbishment and new build schemes, resulting in the creation of responsive additions to the urban landscape or renewing life expired building stock and transforming unused space into functional and aesthetically pleasing clinical departments.
With experience and expertise in using multiple CAD, IT and 3D systems, Nick is able to adapt to differing technical challenges, to communicate design and planning requirements enabling the delivery of considered and responsive design solutions.
As the BIM Development Lead Nick has been responsible for unifying the UK Studios approach to delivering BIM and the technology employed to do this. This has been achieved by implementing systems and processes that follow current UK standards and guidance. His involvement in advising or supporting projects is both at a project level and Regional level to provide BIM Coordination through to developing collaborative approaches with consultants and contractors. His involvement has also included working at a Global level with IBI Group to work on and support projects outside of the UK, located in China, Middle East and Republic of Ireland.
Even though the majority of Nick’s experience is in the Healthcare sector, this experience has covered a wide range of not only project values, but also project types and level of complexity. This adaptability has allowed him to participate in projects within the Commercial and Education sectors.
While at university Nick was nominated for the RIBA White Rose Award (2008) and Huddersfield Civic Trust Award (2008).
