Alistair Kell

Alistair is Principal of Information, Technology & Process for BDP, one of the largest interdisciplinary design practices globally. Since taking up this role in 2010, he has striven to bring greater efficiencies to BDP through IT.

He is a registered Architect and was previously an Architect Director in BDP’s Glasgow office responsible for the design and delivery of a number of significant retail developments throughout the UK including being Project Director for the BCSC Gold Award winning Silverburn project on the outskirts of Glasgow and Contract Administrator for Parkway, Newbury, also a BCSC Gold Award winner.

Since taking over the role of Director of Information and Technology Alistair has also acted as BDP BIM Champion leading the strategy for BDP to be recognised as leading BIM exponents in the UK.

Recent work has addressed the business requirements of the Government Level 2 BIM mandate, leading the ultimately successful application for BRE Level 2 Business Certification for BDP’s London office, the first business in the UK to achieve this.

Most recently he has been leading BDP’s involvement in the successful NBS proposal which ultimately secured the Technology Strategy Board contract to take forward development of the Digital Toolkit for BIM.
