Pam Bhandal was named Digital Construction Champion of the Year, sponsored by Construction Management, at the Digital Construction Awards last night (2 July).

Bhandal is EMEA head of marketing at Revizto, and previously spent the best part of a decade as a marketing manager at Autodesk. But the award reflects her wider engagement with the BIM and digital construction community – a community that might not exist without her.

Six digital construction professionals nominated Bhandal for the award. In her role as a founding member of the UK BIM Alliance, one described her as the glue that kept the Alliance going in its formative stages and instrumental in its outreach, significantly growing its audiences and engagement on LinkedIn and Twitter.

Through her considerable networking skills, she helped bring the right people together across industry specialisms and organised many of the BIM regions and BIM4 events. Indeed, Alliance members told us there was little the organisation did that didn’t have her fingerprints on it.

She was also one of the original core team members of Women in BIM. Without Pam, this network, which supports women in digital construction-related roles, would not have achieved the success it has to date, said one BIM professional.

Bhandal is dedicated and passionate. She connects leaders, fostering their collaboration; she builds vibrant communities; and she has secured critical funding and resources to ensure essential industry initiatives have thrived.

Finally, it has been said by a number of respected industry leaders that she is one of handful people without whom BIM in the UK would simply not have happened!

Pam Bhandal said: "I still haven’t recovered from the surprise of winning this award. I would like to say ‘thank you’ to everyone who nominated me. It really means a lot. I’m not someone who uses BIM on a daily basis, I have always been behind the scenes, so for me to be recognised is incredible."
