  • Comment on: Young architects launch petition calling for all building sites to be shut down

    John Gilbert Architects's comment 27 March, 2020 11:26 am

    In Scotland, the Scottish Government have advised, on a number of occasions that all 'non essential' construction sites should close and I am pleased to say that most of our sites have complied with this guidance, despite the considerable difficulty this causes for Contractors and their staff.
    If construction work continues then the supply chain has to continue, the inspection has to continue, the financial institutions need to continue. Its not just about workers on site but those supporting across the industry.

  • Comment on: Architectural sector has ‘long way to go’ in digital transformation, says report

    John Gilbert Architects's comment 31 May, 2018 10:19 am

    This is quite simply untrue. As an architect who works with BIM I know the claims made here are rubbish. Architects who are involved in all stages of the design and construction process know that successful projects are delivered through improved communications between team members, not digital technology. The complexity of BIM just offers more opportunities for mistakes on site.
    BIM and Digital construction technologies have been foisted on the construction industry by the computer software and service industries, without any demand other than on very high end projects. What the construction sector is crying out for is an increase in the number of skilled tradesmen on site and a reinforcement and recovery of traditional construction skills, not more digital tech.
