As a Digital Consultant at BIM Academy, Abbas is passionate about utilising and collecting data to transform idle rich data into information that can be visually read by all users, to create statistics and model metrics. Abbas studied architecture at the University of Liverpool before completing his Masters in 2020 at the Manchester School of Architecture.

How would you summarise your current role?

What is a Digital Consultant? It’s an interesting title. To me, I think it’s a melting pot of experiences and expertise that encapsulates the title. I have a wide range of experiences and I think these strengths give me an edge to help assist on matters that others would find difficult. However, I just enjoy learning, sharing and improving workflows and thankfully this role allows me to do all these things.

What inspires you?

My inspiration is from seeing individuals flourish and gain confidence through my guidance in the architectural industry. Especially when I see growth in individuals this drives me to continually refine my own skills, to ensure that I can offer the best support and insight within the realms of BIM and Architecture.

What is your proudest moment?

Making the bold leap into the world of BIM and starting my path as a BIM Coordinator. Stepping away from prescribed route of becoming an architect wasn’t easy. However, though daunting, it turned out to be the most rewarding decision and I don’t regret it for a second!
