ALLEN & YORK are delighted to have been engaged by this truly global business to identify candidates for a brand new role to join the team based in Surrey.

This is a CAD/BIM manager role that includes the management, development and resourcing for the existing UK CAD function, the allocation of CAD/modelling on projects, with a "hands on" lead capacity and also be accountable for transitioning the CAD function to be BIM focused. This involves establishing robust CAD drafting and BIM Modelling standards, procedures, and techniques across the company and developing a BIM Object Library to BS 8541 standards.

The objective is to move to a position whereby all 2D output is derived and cut from 3D BIM models. It is a hands-on pragmatic role and will involve the training of staff and the provision of practical support to project teams in the use and application of 3D Modelling software and associated tools.

This is an excellent high profile career development opportunity for the successful candidate to become expert in leading edge BIM processes and technologies.

Key responsibilities:

  • Provide ad-hoc support to project teams as required.
  • Participate in the future development of 3D modelling within BVL
  • Ensure BIM standards, methods and discipline are followed and aligned to our QA processes and procedures
  • Apply advanced, innovative technical solutions and processes

  • Coaching, training and development skills
  • Demonstrate a high level of interest in business process improvement of 3D modelling activities, implementation and methodologies
