We assist clients with what they need to prepare for, support design teams with what they need to deliver, covering aspects of technology, training, business benefits and be a key partner for you to turn to for advice in this acronym led field when it simply gets too confusing.
With 33 years in the construction industry, Graham has always been interested in technology and software, from AutoCAD back in the early 90s to full 3d modelling in the 00s. Over his career, Graham has worked all over the world on some iconic projects ranging from loft conversions in Glasgow to multi-Billion dollar convention centres & 800ft high towers in the Middle East.
Graham has held various senior roles over his career including UK Head of BIM at Ramboll, responsible for Integrated Business Technology and part of the senior management team implementing BIM across the global business. Sharing knowledge and experience has always been something Graham has been passionate about which resulted in him attending the UK’s 1st Building Information Modelling Management MSc course at Middlesex University which he completed in 2016, with his final Thesis on how BIM can assist in the assessment of Project Complexity.

Delivering COBie, Ifc & Classification for Designers
This 1 or 2 day course will guide Designers on how best to approach COBie using Autodesk Revit. We will highlight all the necessary steps on how to set up your Autodesk Revit model with the aid of both the Autodesk Classification Manager and the Autodesk COBie Extension in order to export COBie via Ifc & the Autodesk COBie Extension.
We also provide a follow up (also stand alone) service which includes all mapping files for Ifc Classes to Autodesk Revit Categories, uniclass DWG export layers for Autodesk Revit, updated Autodesk Classification Manager uniclass 2015 tables (uniclass 1.4 & NRM 1 tables can also be provided) plus an indepth COBie & Ifc guidance document.
Prairie Sky Consulting is a consortium of industry change-agents lead by Dr. Bill East, the inventor of the COBie standard. Bill and his associates support the implementation of COBie through the COBieAcademy and hands-on software testing. For construction contractors and subcontractors, the creation of COBie data can be demystified through Bill’s Lean Handover™ practices. Since Better Information Management (BIM) cannot be implemented simply by buying technology with the most buzzwords, Dr. East developed the COBie ScoreCard™ to plan, predict, and measure effect of enterprise transformation.

OpenRFA is an initiative started by a group of Building Information Modeling (BIM) professionals who have identified a gap in how we currently share Revit data throughout the AECO industry. Without a single set of standardized share parameters, it makes it difficult to maintain a single set of data.
OpenRFA is the first platform in which all organizations can truly share shared parameters. This set of parameters is moderated, and organized by the BIM community itself.
