    Serving Client Through Property by Giving Them What They Want

    Serving Client Through Property by Giving Them What They Want

    Welcome Sophie Foote about Health and Safety. With a world of experience as a Scuba Diving Instructor; a degree in Social Anthropology; a Master’s in Southeast Asian Economics, Anthropology and Politics; and Air Traffic Control qualifications under her belt, Sophie has taken the plunge into the HMO (House in Multiple Occupation) markets. Ian and Sophie discuss her experience as a Diving Instructor and building a diving resort, working in an unfamiliar culture, her beginnings in HMO management, her drive to improve standards within the HMO market, good relationships with tenants, staying in control of rising energy costs, and her podcast ‘Girls in Property’. 
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Sophie currently manages a portfolio of 14 HMOs and is starting to work with HMO conversions moving forward. Starting in Scuba Diving, Sophie felt that the way forward was to be an owner and operator of her own diving school which led her to purchase land in Indonesia to set up and build it which gave her initial experience in property development.Returning to England for their children’s education, Sophie became an HMO operator as a franchisee of the ROOMS platform, a rent-to-rent model which manages HMOs for owners and pays base rent and collects individual rents from tenants to fulfil the margin. Sophie has systemised the landlord-tenant relationship with quick cleaning and property maintenance turnarounds, an app-based system to allow communication between tenants and to report problems, and regular social meetings to improve rapport. The demand for HMO rentals is increasing due to the cost of living. An ‘all in’ model allows tenants to make one payment that includes all the extraneous energy bills (currently prohibitively expensive) so people are leaving flat rentals and seeking rooms. You can listen to Sophie and her co-hosts Athena and Julia’s podcast ‘Girls in Property’. BEST MOMENTS
    ‘For me, it’s making safe, comfortable, clean homes for our tenants because I view a lot of HMOs and the standard is really, really poor and there seems to be a typical HMO that’s a bit beige and falling apart.’ – Sophie
    ‘It’s very brave to start a business and develop all in a new country in what is probably a young relationship with your other half at the time. To try and put all that together it must have been very stressful.’ – Ian  
    ‘We had things like crabs in the walls sometimes. You’d get land crabs going up the bamboo or geckos, and monitor lizards. But bamboo is fairly easy to replace so…it wasn’t too bad.’ – Sophie
    ‘It’s really not difficult to be of a higher standard than most of the HMOs. It seems that most of them are typically student groups and they just left so anything that breaks is left broken, any mess is left uncleared. So we have a cleaner that goes in, and we maintain things very quickly. We have an app for our tenants so they can report stuff.’ – Sophie  
    ‘If you differentiate yourself within the market like you are, you’re never going to have an empty room.’ – Ian 
    ‘We’ve got smart thermostats in every property which we control and we turn the heating on in the morning and the evening for an hour or two and then the tenant can boost it for an hour as well, which means the heating can’t be left on all day.’ – Sophie

    Digital Twins

    Digital Twins

    In his final episode detailing the function of Building Information Modelling (BIM), Ian explains the Digital Twins. A Digital Twin is a digital representation of a physical object, process, service or environment that behaves and looks like its counterpart in the real world. In terms of buildings and real estate, the Digital Twin utilises the original 3D model from the BIM process and converts it into a representation of what is actually built.
    Ian covers types of Digital Twin, how a Digital Twin functions, challenges they can solve, why and how to design with Digital Twins, data, modelling, internet linking, Artificial Intelligence integration, and benefits of Digital Twins. 
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The data, as with all aspects of BIM, is the critical part of Digital Twin representation. This method can allow enhancement of strategic technology trends, prevent costly failure in the physical objects and, with advanced analytics, test the products and services. Types of Digital Twins are Component or Part Twins, Asset Twins, System Twins, and Process Twins. Digital Twins can improve procedures such as workflow and staffing, monitoring, and testing of new products and processes. Devices connected to the internet allow real-world data to be instantaneously transferred into the Digital Twin.Common benefits include increased reliability, availability through monitoring and simulation to improve performance, reduced risk, reduced mechanical failures, and efficient scheduling and supply chain. With new participants in the supply chain, all must be willing to share all their data from their production processes to ensure the information contained in the Digital Twin is complete. BEST MOMENTS
    ‘It is effectively the transition from the design phase into the real world.’
    ‘What you are trying to do through the digital twin is actually test what reality is going to be like and therefore avoid all the costly mistakes by doing it wrong in the first place.’
    ‘The developers who create the Digital twin ensure that the virtual computer model can receive feedback from sensors that gather data from the real world version.’
    ‘Digital Twin technology uses machine learning algorithms to process large quantities of sensor data to identify data patterns.’
    ‘However, for all of the benefits, Digital Twins is not suitable for all instances as it can increase complexity.’

    Composite Materials And Modular Applications and Their Impact on Construction With Nintin Govila

    Composite Materials And Modular Applications and Their Impact on Construction With Nintin Govila

    In this episode, Ian talks with Nitin Govila, Senior Vice President of Business Asia Pacific, Middle-East and Africa, and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for Serge Ferrari. Serge Ferrari is a world leader in materials for light architectural and exterior landscaping applications and has reached their 50th year in designing, developing and manufacturing material solutions for solar protection, tensile architecture, modular structures, and furniture and marine usage.
    Nitin has a great deal of experience in International Construction Projects, Building Materials, Marketing, Home Automation, Roofing, Modular Structures, Product Development and international culture. 
    Ian and Nitin discuss Composite Materials and Modular Applications and their impact on construction, the  longevity of materials, information management and culpability, workforce management, and understanding international culture.  
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Composite Materials can mean flexible materials, flexible membranes, tensile fabrics, or technical fabrics. These materials are produced for interior applications, awnings and shadings for airports, theatres etc, facades, furniture fabrics, marine protection and industrial applications. More and more this external material is called the 5th element of construction. If you watched the World Cup you would have seen Serge Ferrari’s membrane structures in use. After 50 years of operation, Serge Ferrari has amassed many examples of well-applied solutions to various practical problems to demonstrate to customers the longevity and efficiency of their Construction Projects. Information management is vitally important for future changes and accountability in building projects. Sustainability is often forefront, but the way employees are treated on international projects must also come from the top and corporate responsibility.  Efficient international projects and planning require the operatives to understand the culture of the clients and workers that are involved. This requires a certain amount of immersion in the country’s culture and environment. BEST MOMENTS
    ‘We operate across multiple market segments. Obviously each market operates differently. So I have overall responsibility for the business in my zone.’ – Nitin 
    ‘There’s a lot of people on sustainability and carbon footprint. So presumably these fabrics are a lot more sustainable and have got a lot less embedded carbon than say a concrete or a steel structure.’ – Ian 
    ‘Our presence is across the world. We have done stadiums, airports or big structures in New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Korea, China, South-East Asia and then coming to Africa, America, South-America and Europe also. Whether it’s extreme winters, whether it’s extreme heat, whether it’s a stormy climate, corrosive climate.’ – Nitin
    ‘Facades play a very key role. It’s part of the design of the building, it’s part of the construction, maybe it’s part of the cost.’ – Nitin
    ‘We should motivate organisations or leaders to look at the methods and practices that companies have been doing and they’re successful and they’re profitable and that can also bring a positive change for everyone.’ – Nitin
    ‘I see the UK in a totally different perspective now having travelled and lived elsewhere.’ – Ian

    BIM Common Data Environment (CDE)

    BIM Common Data Environment (CDE)

    In the final episode on Building Information Modelling, Ian will explain the Common Data Environment, a critical element of the BIM operation. The CDE is a central repository where all building project information is housed. 
    He will discuss why a CDE is established, who contributes, what form it takes, the considerations required when a CDE is created, the advantages of CDE, responsibilities within CDE, information ownership, and common misconceptions about the implementation of CDE. 
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The contents of the CDE are not limited to assets created in a BIM environment and will therefore contain documentation, graphical models, non-graphical assets, documentation, licences and approvals.Many BIM protocols, in particular, the Construction Industry Council propose the use of a CDE.   Everybody contributes to the CDE to capture all aspects of the project.The shared information should result in coordinated data that should in turn reduce both time and costs on your project. Organised data allows for efficient information analytics and significantly improved problem-solving speed and prediction. BEST MOMENTS
    ‘Using a single source of information collaboration between the project members should be enhanced, the stakes being reduced and duplication being avoided.’ 
    ‘This is really the heart of what it’s all about. This is where all data is stored and if done correctly and integrated correctly so people can retrieve it effectively. Like any filing system, it is only as good as how it was set up.’ 
    ‘A lot of training needs to be done, all collaborators and contributors need to be told exactly what is needed, how the information is to be stored, how it is to be used, how it is to be extracted and all that sort of thing.’   
    ‘Contractors have stated that better data gathering, analysis and reporting capabilities have a significant impact on their ability to win new work.’

    BIM Execution Plan (BEP)

    BIM Execution Plan (BEP)

    The BIM Execution Plan (BEP) is the plan prepared by suppliers to explain how the Information modelling aspects of a project will be carried out.  It should detail the project deliverables stipulated by the contract and the information exchange requirement as detailed in the BIM protocol. 
    In this episode, Ian will cover differences between pre and post-contract execution plans, the benefits of having a BEP and the seven elements of a strong execution plan.
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Through clear roles, responsibilities and real-time communication, the BEP keeps all in sync while ensuring construction stays on track. A pre-contract BEP should demonstrate the proposed capability, capacity and competence to meet the PID in general terms. Post-contract BEP is to confirm the supply chain’s capabilities. A strong BEP will include clearly defined roles and responsibilities, strategic planning, BIM scope definition, defined key deliverables, project goals and BIM objectives , quality control procedures, reference project information including key project contacts and working procedures. BEST MOMENTS
    ‘A BEP is a comprehensive document that helps project participants move forward with clear roles and expectations. It is an essential element to create before beginning any construction project, especially for those that are large or complex projects with many collaborators.’   
    ‘I’m talking about a BIM specialist in their own right. You may need to get the BIM specialist on board before you get the design team employed.’ 
    ‘It might take time to put the plan together, but once it is up and running it will set out the key deliverables, procedures and other information that will streamline the BIM process and keep everybody moving forward.’
