Lewis Wenman has been appointed group BIM manager at contractor J Murphy & Sons, strengthening the development of BIM across the company and helping Murphy to remain at the forefront of the UK construction and civil engineering industry.
Responsible for the group’s BIM strategy, Wenman will use his extensive experience across the UK and international construction markets to deliver the implementation of Murphy’s BIM approach and engagement with customers, designers and the supply chain.
Murphy said the appointment will also help reinforce the company’s position with BIM in new markets.
