Robert Wood has been appointed Digital Delivery Manager at Glider.
Formerly of Arcadis, Robert joins the Glider team to manage project digital information requirements, acting as a digital lead on client projects to support the implementation of data and information management.
Through the use of BIM and a connected data environment, the role of our Digital Delivery Managers is to see both broad and detailed views of all phases of a project, helping mitigate or avoid problems that can cause a project to stall. As a qualified Architectural Technologist, and having worked in previous BIM management roles, Robert is skilled in technical detailing and modelling as well as auditing quality of data and geometry using industry software(s) to coordinate design in 4D and 5D.
In his new role at Glider, Robert will work across multiple projects to define BIM requirements and BIM management strategies for the design, construction and operational phases of the project acting as BIM Information Manager and providing implementation, training and support services to clients for the use of our gliderbim® CDE platform.
Speaking about his new role, Robert said: “I am excited to be joining Glider at this time, when it is seeing accelerated growth as a result of being at the forefront of BIM and data management within the AEC industry.”
Nick Hutchinson, Glider Managing Director added: “Construction is one of the largest industries in the world and is positioned to benefit from significant value through improved digital productivity. Enabling businesses to analyse project data and forecast predicted performance to avoid future operational issues before they occur, reduce waste and downtime on site in the build stages. Plus having a fully digital operational and maintenance programme post build can be fully realised through effective information management in the design stages. At Glider this is the process we live by and the purpose of our Digital Delivery Managers.
“With his experience in BIM management, Robert will be an incredible asset, he has joined us at a time when we are expanding, creating new jobs and delivering some really impressive projects. We have big plans for the future and Robert’s continual development will be part of them.”
