BIMsense marks its second successful year in business through expansion to a larger space at C4Di, creating new jobs to support the exciting new Digital Estates products they are bringing to market.
Having effectively utilised the C4Di co-working space to collaborate with other property and digital businesses, Directors Ian Yeo and Scott Pilgrim have built BIMsense into a flourishing estates asset management consultancy. They have now outgrown their original co-working home, taking on their own space within C4Di’s ‘Internet of Things (IoT) Corridor’.
The team is also growing with University of Liverpool graduate, Alison, having joined BIMsense as a Digital Marketing Apprentice this September. Alison brings with her a wealth of creative and events management skills following her university placements and the completion of her Maths and Music degree.
“We are incredibly proud and excited to offer Alison the chance to showcase her talents. Alison showed great evidence of not only creating good marketing content, but also at analysing the effect it has on the audience, an obvious reflection of her mathematical and analytical strengths. She has a great future ahead of her!”.
In October, the team welcomed Edward as a Software Developer Apprentice. Edward has a clear passion for programming and joins us following the completion of his A levels in Computing, Psychology and ICT – Within his first month, Edward had already developed his own task management platform for the BIMsense team.
“It’s great to have Edward as part of the team. Edward has a clear passion for coding and has quickly demonstrated his ability to learn through developing and deploying a web app that the whole team are now using. Edward’s logical and systematic approach to problem-solving will provide a perfect platform for gaining new skills.”
Our latest addition to the team this year, Tim, has joined BIMsense as Chief Technology Officer in the Product Development department. Tim has worked for several years as a programmer and developer in addition to creating HappyGoon; a top 50 one-to-watch technology business that brings cards to life.
Tim’s experience in web development and implementing augmented reality technologies will shape the future of the company given our plans to enable ‘keyhole surgery’ for buildings using VR and AR technologies through our soon-to-be-released facility management platform.
The business has come a long way since their award win for Best Digital Start-Up at the HEY Digital Awards in 2017. Since then, they have released a debut book, BIM for Estates, written to help professionals in the estates management industry which has received Amazon Best-Seller status online. The team also took home the award for the Best Digital Business at the 2018 Yorkshire Federation of Small Business Awards and went on to become national finalists.
“It’s an exciting time at BIMsense”, Scott added. “Not only are we taking on our first employees and moving into our office, but we are about to release our first digital product too. 70 applicants across the globe have already signed up to it for BETA testing, it’s a great achievement by my co-founder Ian Yeo and our growing product development team. We look forward to releasing it to the market soon!”.
BIMsense looks set to continue as a growing tech business with the development of their new smart estates asset management platform, which the team hope will improve the efficiency of estates development and facilities management by digitalising the process for large estates such as universities and hospitals.
