Woodhead - from Hotels to Hospitals to Airport Terminals (and yep, they use Revit :-)

Many of you will know that I made a significant move about 3 months ago - I moved my young family over 2000 kms and took a new position working for Woodhead in Adelaide.

It has been an exciting and eye-opening experience for me so far.  The project range and depth of experience at Woodhead is truly impressive, and it is great to see important technologies like point clouds, laser scanning, BIM for FM and clash detection being used and implemented on a day-to-day basis.

Further, it is exciting to observe the consistent award wins and media exposure for key projects that were designed and delivered by Woodhead.  Some of these, like the new terminal at Jakarta–Soekarno Hatta International Airport, are currently undergoing design refinement - and believe me, the guys here at Woodhead are pushing the limits of Revit in terms of conceptual modelling and the sheer scale of this project.

Please check out the portfolio links at the end of the article if you wish to learn more about the design capability at Woodhead.
