Digital Information Specialist

"Information - the one true asset to rule them all!"


Bio:

Emma is a Digital Information Specialist at Bond Bryan Digital. After studying Architecture her focus and passion shifted to software and the technical side of design.

Her discipline is now very much that of information, fascinated by how the science and mechanics behind it can be applied to construction to get the real value from digitisation. She takes her in-depth knowledge of software and its interoperability and combines this with her understanding of industry standards and the theory behind them. Since working on the first Integrated Project Insurance project she also champions new forms of procurement as this is where she believes we need to start to create real industry change.
 
From a software perspective she is Revit certified professional, she co-authored the book “Delivering COBie Using Autodesk Revit” and is a former Revit gunslinger. She is now part of the BSI B/555 committee including UK expert for ISO 16739 (IFC), an author of the ISO 19650 guidance, an ambassador for the UK BIM Alliance and on the buildingSMART UK & Ireland committee.

Her push is to now use her experience and knowledge to make projects more efficient in terms of information management, by joining up the dots between people, process and technology to enable true collaboration with an emphasis on openBIM principles.
