Profile

Barry Maguire BSC (Arch) (Hons) BArch (Dist) RIBA

I am currently at an advanced proficiency in Revit Architecture 2015/16 and Building Information Management (BIM). I first began using ArchiCAD software in 2001 to virtually construct and coordinate architectural projects and further develop my construction modelling and BIM experience with various 3D software programs working since January 2012 in Revit Architecture 2012/13.

I am now highly proficient with Revit in parallel with Navisworks and more recently training with Dynamo.  I have progressed significantly with Building Information Modelling & Management over the last 5 years and I am confident in my direction with this as a career path. I am the lead Autodesk Revit Architecture user & BIM coordination manager on the new Non Clinical Support Building at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast circa £10m which is currently on site. My BIM role has now progressed to the New Hospital for Sick Children circa £125m also within the Royal Victoria Hospital.

Previous to this I was initially a team revit architect from stage E to practical completion on the Bicester Town Centre redevelopment project and Egham Town Centre redevelopment from RIBA Stage D to Stage F with Lyons Sleeman Hoare architects in Hampshire from 2012-2013. My career progressed to ADP LLP in Birmingham where I was the BIM Lead coordinator on the Shirelands Collegiate Academy project which followed a Design & Build procurement path with Interserve Construction. I returned to Northern Ireland in 2014 as project architect on two Design & Build projects with White Ink Architects until my current position with AECOM. AECOM has enabled me to gain valuable experience within the Health Care sector in both non-clinical support infrastructure buildings & experience in the complexities of critical health care design working with multiple disciplines to achieve a BIM Level 2 final Asset Information Model.

I received advanced Revit model training in 2012 however my most valuable training is achieved through continuity in working directly on live BIM projects. This experience has enabled me to facilitate my colleagues in practical learning in Revit modelling while developing weekly project specific exercises and CPD seminars in order to establish a structured learning programme working closely with Autodesk solutions.
