6th Year Construction Studies Site Visit to DIT Grange Gorman.

On Fdit site visitriday the 21st of November the 6th year construction studies group visited the new DIT campus that is under construction on the Grangegorman site. The students were greeted by Jimmy O Keeffe (project manager), and Aidan O Connell (contracts manager), of BAM, the construction company charged with constructing the Health Science building on the new campus. Both Jimmy and Aidan gave a very informative presentation of all the works happening on site. The lads were presented with the BIM (building information management) software, which gave a 3D representation of the entire building and its components. This was very interesting as this new technology is at the forefront of new and best practices in construction today.

After this presentation the lads were then guided around the concrete shell of the building as Jimmy explained how the building has been constructed to date and also how it will be completed in just a short few months. Overall all the lads enjoyed the experience as in the their words it was “deadly”. Many thanks to BAM for accommodating such a brilliant and well-organized visit and we will all be looking forward to seeing and using the DIT campus in the coming years.
