Pam Bhandal at the Awards ceremony

Pam Bhandal wins Digital Construction Champion award

Pam Bhandal was announced as the Digital Construction Champion of the Year at the Digital Construction Awards 2024 on 2 July. The award – sponsored by Construction Management – was given for her unstinting support of the sector and growing the BIM community through the UK BIM Alliance – today nima – and the Women in BIM network (also a nima community).

One well-known BIM professional described our champion as the glue that kept the UK BIM Alliance going in its formative stages and was instrumental in its outreach, significantly growing its audiences and engagement on LinkedIn and Twitter. Indeed, our champion was a founding team member of the Alliance.

Through their considerable networking skills, our champion helped bring the right people together across industry specialisms, and organised many of the BIM Regions and BIM4 events. Alliance members told us there was little the Alliance did that didn’t have our champion’s fingerprints on.

Our champion was also one of the original core team members of Women in BIM; without her, this network, which supports women in digital construction-related roles, would not have achieved the success it has to date, one BIM professional told us.

Our champion is dedicated and passionate. They connect leaders, fostering collaboration; they build vibrant communities; and they have secured critical funding and resources to ensure essential industry initiatives thrived.

Noting that the definition of ‘champion’ is to “vigorously support or defend the cause of”, another digital construction guru said our champion “has been the ultimate supporter of digital construction”.

Finally, it has been said by a number of respected industry leaders that without our champion, for many BIM in the UK would not have happened!

Nima is delighted at Pam’s recognition, and we add our gratitude for her ongoing commitment to BIM. Now head of marketing at BIM technology business, Revizto, she remains a strong friend of nima.
