Building-services company Ameon reports that it now has six key managers fully qualified in BIM (Building Information Modelling). Robin Lawson managing director of the Blackpool-based company, views the commitment to BIM as a valuable investment. He says, ‘BIM has become the established standard across the construction sector, so it is critical that companies such as ours have invested in the technology and training to enable us to provide the expertise that is expected by all main contractors in the industry.’

He continues, ‘It is one of the most useful development in systems and infrastructure design in recent years and is transforming the way contractors and trades operate on site.’

Ameon invested in BIM and adopted the technology when market conditions were at their most difficult. Robin Lawson views that as a wise move. ‘I see our investment in technology and training now paying dividends as we seek to maintain our position in the market with the economy improving, particularly in relation to construction.’

The company has also expanded its trade apprentices in areas such as plumbing, heating and ventilation, and electrical, and continues to develop its management apprenticeship scheme, which offers an engineering degree qualification and management position on graduation.
