30 October 2012 - In a move that further strengthens Aurecon’s expertise in the Buildings sector, one of Australia’s leading building information modelling (BIM) experts, John Hainsworth, has joined Aurecon to lead our BIM capabilities.
A structural engineer with more than 25 years of experience, John has spent the last 13 years specialising in 3D and BIM delivery. He is recognised as a BIM pioneer across all design disciplines and stages of delivery, and sits on BIM steering committees for the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA), Consult Australia (CA), the Air Conditioning and Mechanical Contractors' Association (AMCA) and Australian Steel Institute (ASI). He is also a past Secretary of the Revit User Group Sydney (RUGSyd) and recently contributed to the August 2012 National BIM Initiative for the Australian Federal Government.
John said he is excited to join Aurecon and sees enormous opportunity to standardise our offer, approach and delivery to establish Aurecon as a market leader in the area.
“My goal is to craft and respond to a strategic position for Aurecon within the BIM market, aiming for us to consistently create, deliver and store data that is organised and trustworthy,” John said.
“Our BIM offering should provide clients with pre-order and pre-fabrication opportunities, drive carbon and waste reduction, offer cost certainty for our clients and support intelligent, sustainable building management, operations and maintenance into the future.”
Peter Greaves, Building Services Leader, said John’s appointment helps strengthen a capability that has already delivered great value for Aurecon’s clients.
“Aurecon has been working at the forefront of Revit BIM for some time and has developed a reputation for innovative modelling that enhances key value add components such as material quantities, safety in design, construction sequencing, staging and asset management,” Peter said.
“We shape our offering around the needs of our clients and we know from their feedback that our BIM expertise adds enormous value to their building projects.
“Revit BIM is an evolving area and we are excited about the opportunities ahead for members of our team, such as John, to work with clients on leading-edge solutions.”
John joins Aurecon from Arup, where he held global responsibilities and successfully shaped and led their first dedicated BIM Consultancy Group.
