Phil Jackson BSc CEng FICE FRSA

Phil Jackson
Phil is a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers with many years of practical experience in design and construction. He is an acknowledged leader in the deployment of Information Technology in Infrastructure Design, Construction and Operational Management.  His background and experience has encompassed most aspects of the construction industry from buildings through infrastructure to asset management.
He is passionate about the use of data as an asset and seeing it used throughout the lifecycle of the built environment. And he feels strongly that BIM has too long been seen as a 3D modelling solution and not the information management tool it really is.  He is therefore actively involved in helping asset owners designers, builders and operators in developing strategies that capture manage and leverage this information.

He has been involved in some of the world’s most prestigious projects including the UK Channel Tunnel, Hong Kong’s Airport, Heathrow Terminal 5, Dubai Festival City, Masdar City in Abu Dhabi, & London Crossrail.

He is a member of the London Crossrail BIM Advisory Panel and has been working with the UK BIM Taskgroup as a team member developing strategy and supported the delivery of BIM to government departments majoring on BIM for Infrastructure for the Highways Agency and the Environment Agency. Most recently he has joined the Atkins team assisting the UK High Speed 2 Rail project in implementing information management solutions to the project.

He runs his own independent consulting company and is Royal Academy Visiting Teaching Fellow for BIM at the University of Surrey He also chaired the Institution of Civil Engineers Information Systems Panel for a number of years, is a board member of Building Smart UK, and serves on a number of standards steering groups related to BIM.
