It was my privilege to be with the guys at CITA in Dublin a few weeks ago. Didn’t write it up at the time so this is a bit of catch up. Check them out at http://www.cita.ie We talked about BIM in pre-construction, and there were several software vendors supporting the event, as well as […]Read more "CITA – leading by example…"
I’ve just enjoyed a few days with my family in the Bay of Naples at Sorrento. I tried to be good but in the end had to give in to the wine, limoncello, pasta, pizza and ice cream!!! (They made me!)

Watch out for… BIM […]Read more "2013 – BIM or BUST???"
Phew! The writing is done. The proofs have been checked and signed off. The index is complete. The file sits on my table and now we wait. Somewhere east of Europe I think, it’s now in production. Publication probably late February…exciting! (To be confirmed…) It will be two years almost to the day since I […]Read more "The CIOB Design Manager’s Handbook"
