OHMG’s objective to ensure staff are competent in BIM delivery and digital skills has been achieved through the successful delivery of the European digital construction project: BIMcert.  This project is being led by Belfast Metropolitan College and their European partners which includes OHMG.

27 staff have successfully achieved an OCN Level 3 in digital skills & BIM accredited qualification.  The course was conducted by staff in a blended learning environment to ensure the training was balanced with their work and home life.

OHMG Managing Director Martin Lennon said: “The Belfast Met BIM course was a perfect fit for our team, and is another step on our digital transformation journey.”

The OCN Level 3 course is helping to transform the construction sector, assist workers on their digital transformation journey and revolutionize the entire construction supply chain.

Martin Lennon said the construction industry faced all sorts of challenges.

He added:  “It is vital that our staff is fully skilled in digital tools for construction while delivering the goods on-site”.

Paul McCormack, BIMcert Programme Manager congratulated the OHMG staff for completing the training module.

He said: “Belfast Met and the BIMcert partners have developed a pan European qualification and delivery platform which transforms the European construction industry.  These courses and byte-sized modules help mobilise the skills set of the workforce and open new opportunities, careers, and employability.

“This work has been instrumental in getting the construction industry to move from a position where it was focused on fixing specific problems to a position now where they are creating enterprise capacity, reducing the carbon footprint and delivering sustainable energy-efficient construction.”
