BIM Manager, Stewart Construction
Cathal has spent his entire adult life in construction, from starting off painting with his father to working his way through the design disciplines to eventually managing BIM teams from the prospective of the main contraction.
As a BIM Manager for one of the top-tier main contractors like Stewart Construction, Cathal has had the pleasure and fortitude to help shape the ongoing BIM base approaches to the construction industry in Ireland.
Previously he was employed with Dominic O’Connor’s Ltd (Mechanical Contractor / Lead Coordinator) as a BIM Implementation manager / Coordinator.
He has also lectured in BIM at TU Dublin (formerly DIT) and supported students in implementation of BIM projects as part of a module he developed.
BIM in Ireland is still undergoing a progressive change as it is adopted into the mainstream of day-to-day construction practices, from pre-design to life-cycle management. It is in Cathal’s scope to further invest his knowledge and experience to drive the digital based approaches that BIM is so adept at achieving.
Cathal wishes the best of luck to all this year’s finalists.
