He did it! Pierre Loir, BIM Manager at Eiffage Construction in the South-East of France, has just won the title of French BIM Champion at the WorldSkills 2022 competition. Supported by Mickaël Garabedian, Regional BIM Group Leader also in our teams, he will represent France at the next stage: Shanghai.
At 25 years old, Pierre made his country, his region - South-East of France - and his company proud!
The project on which the 5 shortlisted regional candidates had to compete consisted of a partial modelling of a regional FFB headquarters, including the modules BIM Configuration, Modelling and Collaboration, Model Coordination, File Documentation and Export, Scheduling and Quantities. The tools to be used were Autodesk Revit, Autodesk Navisworks Manage, Autodesk Construction Cloud.
Organised by the Comité Français des Olympiades des Métiers (COFOM), the national finals took place from 11 to 16 January at Eurexpo Lyon. They attracted more than 50,000 visitors, including Jean Castex and Elisabeth Borne. The medal was presented by Jacques Chanut, President of SMA BTP.
Barely recovered from his emotions, Jonathan Pires of the FFB is now preparing for the next stage: in Shanghai, he will face twenty or so other candidates from all over the world, which does not seem to scare him...
"My objective now is to achieve the best possible result in Shanghai while carrying out my missions in the South East region. You can count on my strong investment to achieve these breathtaking objectives."
Congratulations again to Pierre for this great award, and see you in mid-October 2022 to find out the result!
