Graham’s mission in BIM Academy is to apply computer science to optimise business and deliver enhanced productivity, client service and design excellence. He studied applied computing at Northumbria University, and became a research assistant at the University after graduation. It was this post that led Graham into the world of BIM where he utilised his computing skills in a multidisciplinary team to solve problems within the built environment sector. Prior to his studies, Graham spent four years volunteering as an English teacher in a remote village on the west coast of the Republic of Georgia where he met his wife and began studying computer science and electronics in his spare time.
