Darren Houston, Mona Nawaz and Connor Patterson have been selected for the UK Building Information Modelling (BIM) team following their strong performances at both the Regional and National legs of the competition series. They will now embark upon an 18-month training period, at the end of which one of them will be selected to represent the UK at the WorldSkills competition, which will take place in Shanghai on 22-27 September 2021.
The WorldSkills series pits the best students from across the globe against each other in a competitive scenario, with the aim of promoting skilled careers and fostering excellence in trades.
The BIM competition tests competitors on their ability to produce, coordinate and quality check multiple 3D Project Information Models whilst working in a Common Data Environment, including configuring and inputting classification and asset information. Competitors are also judged on their ability to demonstrate a full understanding of and ability to use the BS/PAS 1192 suite and ISO 19650-1 and 19560-2 BIM standards in a range of situations.
