Self Architects and White Design have appointed a new BIM Manager to help drive their ambitious growth strategy.
Tom Feely, who has a degree in Architectural Technology from Sheffield Hallam University, joined the practice three years ago and is at the forefront of the latest Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies.
All Self Architects and White Design projects are carried out using BIM and the Autodesk Revit software which means designs can be modelled in 3D from day one.
Director Mark Barker said:
“We pride ourselves on being an adopter practice and are totally committed to BIM and using it in exciting and new ways. We have invested to ensure we attract and retain the very best people in high performing teams of architects, technologists, assistants and interior designers.
Our specialist in-house team produce a variety of outputs from the BIM model including the use of head mounted displays, still images, video fly-throughs and 360-degree panoramas. We generate a QR code to provide our clients with a full ‘augmented reality’ experience of the design solution which not only delivers real efficiencies but brings the whole design and construction process to life.
In appointing Tom, we believe we have the BIM Manager to help take our practice forward to the next level.”
At the end of last year, Tom received the Trebbi Step-Up Award to recognise his outstanding work and work ethic. A keen runner, he regularly competes with other members of the team in long running distance events including the 20-mile Hathersage Hurtle, which involves 2,500 ft of ascent in Peak District.
Tom is hoping 2019 will not only see his own promotion but that of his beloved Barnsley FC back to the EFL Championship!
As part of their ambitious five-year growth strategy, Self Architects and White Design have also appointed Architectural Assistant Hannah Cadman to join their expanding team.
