Excitech Increases Investment in Construction Sector

New appointments consolidate and build on Excitech’s market leadership

Excitech, the UK leader in technology and services for the construction sector, today announced the expansion of its construction capability with the appointment of two industry experts. Rob Torres and Nick Simpson, both formerly of Skanska, join the company’s Professional Services team as Consultants.

Rob is a mechanical engineer and BIM specialist who brings over 17 years’ experience within M&E contracting having started with Skanska in 2000. Most recently he has been involved in the development, set up, training and ongoing support of products like BIM 360 Field and Glue.

Nick brings over 42 years’ technical and managerial experience gained working for Skanska, Lorne Stewart and DSSR. His background is centred around MEP design, detailing, design management, on-site construction management and O&M handover. In recent years, Nick has led the introduction of new technology, improved processes and collaborative behaviour inside Skanska.

“We’re delighted to have Rob and Nick join the Excitech team” said David Hughes, Managing Director, Excitech. “They both bring a wealth of industry experience, and a deep involvement in the digital transformation of the construction sector. As holders of Autodesk’s Construction Specialisation, we have already demonstrated a significant investment in this sector and can offer a high level of technical support to our construction customers. Rob and Nick strengthen that capability still further.”

Excitech is one of the leading resellers of Autodesk’s BIM 360 in Europe, having been involved in a number of deployments of the technology. Its team of industry and technical experts supports over 3000 clients, including many large construction companies. It was recently nominated for 7 awards at the upcoming Construction Computing Awards, including “Best Use of IT on a Construction Project” with BIM 360 for Balfour Beatty.

“The phrase “digital transformation” is on the lips of everyone you talk to in the construction sector. The opportunities presented by technologies such as Autodesk’s BIM 360 platform, Clearedge3D’s Verity, and our own Excitech DOCS are significant. We’re committed to helping our customers understand which technologies best fit their businesses, and how they can gain long-term value from those investments.” said Hughes.
