Communication and team skills are probably the most important aspect overlooked.

In energy management, it is not I that saves the energy, but often it is folks on the ground using the equipment.

It is the energy managers job to educate by communication, the importance of doing the right things, savings then come as a result.

Naturalist
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Summary... header image

Architectural and BIM Technology is an innovative approach to the integration of traditional architectural technologist skills-sets together with Building Information Modelling (BIM) processes and technologies which are currently transforming the way in which construction projects are procured, managed and built.

Course Details header image

This four year programme enables students to become architectural technologists with additional advanced skills in Building Information Technology (BIM). Students will become competent in the ‘science of building’ and the production of construction drawings and specifications for complex building types, allowing them to become technical members of construction design teams. Student will also acquire an advanced knowledge in the application of BIM methodology which is an integrated collaborative approach for building project delivery between the relevant professionals, i.e. engineers, quantity surveyors, architectural professions and the building contractor. The inclusion of an Industrial Placement (work experience) module and modules in Project Management, Property Pathology and Refurbishment, Value Engineering and Construction Collaboration Technologies, will also enable the graduate to become an interdisciplinary practitioner within the construction industry.
