I am a student of Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences at the Delft University of Technology. I have previously worked as a Product Owner & BIM Consultant (during my Internship), Architect/Technical Integration Consultant (Part-Time working Student) and as a BIM Quality Assurance & Quality Control Officer (Part-Time working Student) at Xinaps B.V.
I love to gain valuable insight into the AEC (Architecture Urbanism Construction) and VDC (Visual Design Construction) Industry and am fascinated about the following topics: Architecture, Spatial & Urban Planning, Building Regulations & Management, Building Materials/Construction, Architectural History, Mechanics and Building Physics. I like to learn about technical aspects of buildings, such as the structural design, and building climate optimization requirements and am fascinated and determined to learn how sustainability can be used in the planning, design, construction, and renovation of the built environment. Hence my goal is to become an Architect who is knowledgeable and skilled in the fields of planning and designing buildings and smart cities that use new building technologies and climate design principles while keeping in mind the current and future user.
My passion for Architecture and the Built Environment is inborn in me. As a result, making scale down models has been my hobby since childhood. In my high school, I chose to study Visual Arts as a subject. This is when I first learnt the relationship between Design and Architecture. During my schooling the projects that I chose always had a strong inclination for Architecture and related topics. For example, for an IB Extended Essay I carried out research on the Spatial Distribution, pricing and parking policy of paid car parks in Eindhoven, to see if it supported Socio-Economic Development and Sustainable Mobility within the city centre. This research work gave me the opportunity to understand and appreciate the Urban Planning and Development of Eindhoven as a City.
I have also travelled to many European and Asian countries and have always been fascinated by the Architecture, Urban Planning and Mobility of the places I have visited. The topics of Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences has always fascinated me, and always eager to continue learning more about these topics.
Xinaps is a start-up company and a key player in data analysis for project classification, validation, reporting and regulatory building compliance of BIM models. It provides Architects Engineers Constructors (AEC) and General Contractors with their in-house BIM solution (Verifi3D) to validate their BIM Model (based upon the Level of Information (LOI) of the model) compliance pertaining to building regulations and project requirements that cover’s the built asset lifecycle process. While enabling its users to build up their own individual or cooperate Common Data Environment (CED) which can be used for any BIM Project while ensuring ISO 19650 & PD 19650-O compliance.
My role at Xinaps is to work with General Contractors in the AEC & VDC Industry to help integrate or adapt their workflows and help ensure that they can validate their BIM Models in a Smart-Automated way against Building Regulations or Project Guidelines throughout the Built Asset Lifecycle Process that span from the Design to Pre-Construction, Pre-Construction to Construction and Construction to Maintenance Phase.
Hence, I help integrate the Architectural, Construction, Engineering and Management practices of the Building Industry with the various software solutions developed by Xinaps. Where my role (during my internship) as a Project Owner and BIM Consultant, helps me to ensure the successful delivery of the project and help increase its value proposition.
Working at Xinaps has hence allowed me to work with the following Companies:
It has also enabled me to present Innovative Solutions for the following Companies:
And has given me to oppertunity to give Workshops and Present at the following events:
Before my internship where I took on the role and responsibilities of a Product Owner and BIM Consultant, I worked as a part-time student as an Architect / Technical Integration Consultant and before that had the role and responsibilities of a BIM Quality Assurance and Quality Control Officer at Xinaps.
