The UK BIM Alliance has named Tilbury Douglas and Egnyte as its newest patrons, with the former joining the Alliance as a Platinum patron.
As a leading UK building, infrastructure, engineering, and fitout company with more than 130 years of experience, Tilbury Douglas delivers projects across a range of sectors including health, education, highways, justice, defence, aviation, and water.
Aneesa Mulla, head of Digital at Tilbury Douglas, said: “As a leading digitally enabled contractor, we’re committed to supporting the Alliance in driving digital transformation across our industry in a meaningful way.
“As a Platinum Plus Patron, we hope to influence change by supporting the Alliance’s practical implementation of standards, processes and technology that will work towards future proofing our industry.”
Casey Rutland, chair of buildingSMART and UK&I, said: “We are happy to welcome Tilbury Douglas as patrons representing the contractor perspective.
“We look forward to strengthening our relationship and promoting best practice together.”
Egnyte joins the Alliance as a patron and member of the UK BIM Alliance Technology Group.
Andrew Martin, senior sales director EMEA and managing director UK at Egnyte, said: “In an era where digital transformation is reshaping the way sectors across the economy approach traditional processes, communication and collaboration, businesses that embrace the benefits of today’s cloud-enabled solutions will be well placed to succeed in the years ahead.
“Construction firms, in particular, are constantly challenged to find ways to improve productivity and reduce cost and risk.
“Egnyte addresses these challenges by streamlining construction projects from design through closeout. We are looking forward to working with the Alliance to help construction companies digitally transform.”
The Alliance says Egnyte shares its aim of improving productivity and helping the industry transform digitally.
Paul Wilkinson, chair UKBIMA Technology Group, said: “I recall talking to Egnyte people about the UK BIM Alliance at a construction trade show just before lockdown, and am pleased that they have followed through and committed to helping progress industry conversation about information management including the use of BIM”.
The UK BIM Alliance is a network made up of industry representatives that aim to ensure BIM becomes business as usual, as well as leading the way in transforming and future proofing the way the construction industry works.
