Nigel Tan Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear
A passionate QS/BIM Graduate
Nigel is a hardworking, highly motivated, open minded and enthusiastic MSc graduate in Building Design Management and Building Information Modelling (BIM), with a BSc in Quantity Surveying, seeking a role which would allow him to develop and imbue theory and practice within a professional quantity surveying context. Throughout his academic and, albeit limited, professional experience, he has been able to develop skills within multi-cultural environments that required both intra and interdisciplinary communication and working. After witnessing the value and precision that can be elicited within a well-managed and integrated BIM-enabled environment and its potential deficiencies, at project, programme and portfolio level, he hope to use this to contribute and add value to the quantity surveying profession.
