Introducing BIM to the Talent of Tomorrow

Last week MCS facilitated a talk to Woking College’s IT students about the use of technologies in construction, which forms part of the ‘Emerging Technologies’ module of their course.


Following MCS’s recent collaboration on a Building Magazine Awards finalist project, Queen Elizabeth II Building at Glenthorne High School, MCS invited structural engineer, Scott White and Hookins to deliver the presentation.


Students were shown how BIM is used by different consultants during a project and how the benefits of using this technology can assist with areas such as cost, structural efficiency, clash detection and sustainability. They were then given the opportunity to interact with BIM via QR codes and ask questions where topics included: the use of AI in construction; software and access to software; project lengths and cost.


Following the presentation lots of positive feedback from students was received, including: “It was good to expand my knowledge about BIM and Structure's, and they answered all my questions with good explanations.” and “I found it very informing and in my opinion it was awesome and I learnt a lot.”


Christine Jelly, Assistant Head of IT at Woking College thanked MCS and SWH saying “I would like to extend my gratitude to you all for coming into college and providing such an interesting talk on BIM.”


In response Managing Director, Justin Whiteman, said: “We are delighted to be given the opportunity to highlight the exciting and varied careers available to all in construction.


“We want to change the negative perception of construction and are passionate about nurturing the talent of tomorrow, so we welcome opportunities to talk to students at local schools and colleges.”


“I would like to thank: Peter Lecheta, Director; Giuseppe Burdo, BIM Manager and Ed Gault, Structural Engineer of Scott White & Hookins who kindly donated their time to work with us in providing this exciting presentation to the students of Woking College.”
