Excellence in Education & Training Award for GMIT / RPS Higher Diploma in Engineering in BIM

The GMIT / RPS Higher Diploma in Engineering in BIM was awarded the Excellence in Education and Training Award at the HR Leadership & Management Awards 2018 in Dublin on Thursday 8th March.

This award is in recognition of the collaborative academia industry approach taken by RPS and GMIT in developing the Level 8 Higher Education Programme in Building Information Modelling.

Shirley Comerford, Head of Strategic Human Resources, Department of Public Expenditure and Reform (DPER) presents Excellence in Education & Training Award to Mark Costello, Gerry Carty (both RPS) & Mary Rogers (GMIT)

In response to key changes within the construction industry, RPS recognised the need for a significant step change in our approach to Building Information Modelling (BIM). This applied across the board in all our business sectors.

BIM is now an integral part of the design process for the delivery of large building and infrastructural projects in RPS. Since 2013, over 80 RPS staff have been upskilled on this programme which has allowed us to remain at the forefront of our industry. This innovative approach to education and training is facilitating Irish design team participation and leadership in major infrastructure projects in the UK and Europe.

Launched in 2015, the HR Leadership & Management Awards are vital to promote HR, as they allow innovation and achievement to shine. Other winners on the night included Google, Lidl, Beaumont Hospital, Dalata Hotel Group and Bank of Ireland.
