A building Information Modelling (BIM) trainer from Forest Hall has been awarded a rare seal of approval from software company, Autodesk, whose products are widely used in sectors such as engineering, architecture and construction.

Peter Morton, who works at the Gosforth-headquartered BIM Technologies and Northern Construction Training partnered CAMPUS, was one of only 46 people worldwide to be nominated for membership of the Autodesk Expert Elite Programme this year, highlighting him as an individual who has made an extraordinary contribution to the Autodesk community.

Morton played a key part in setting up CAMPUS and creating the curriculum, which he delivers to 19 to 24-year-olds who are not in education, employment or training.

Morton, who was nominated by Autodesk Education Program Manager for Europe, Bjoern Wittenberg is also a former Autodesk Student Expert, Education Expert and current member of the Autodesk Developer Network (ADN).

“It’s such a privilege to be made an Autodesk Expert Elite member as there are only 138 individuals in total across 20 countries on the programme,” he said.

“I’m very grateful to Bjoern for nominating me and to BIM.Technologies, which has allowed me to develop my skills and pass on this knowledge to new learners.”

BIM Technologies was launched by _space group in 2011.
