BIM Expert and developer


Job description

The building industry is at the eve of a paradigm shift. Today, the so called 'industry 4.0' is entering the building industry. Industry 4.0 is the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. Do you want to be involved in the industry 4.0, what is changing the world of building engineering and construction?

Witteveen+Bos is a frontrunner in the development and implementation of industry 4.0 in the construction industry. In Singapore, an important part of this is 'Design for Manufacturing and Assembling', which will push advanced precast at the expense of traditional construction at the site. Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) offers new and exciting challenges to prototype both buildings and civil works in a digital environment before actual construction. Subsequently, actual construction will be digitized and robotized, already programmed in the design phase. Witteveen+Bos is a pioneer in designing, engineering and implementing of 3D-printing and 3D-printed structures.

As BIM Expert you will focus on the development of BIM for the industry 4.0. You will not only be working with parametric tools and BIM related software from 3D up to 7D, but even assist in the development of these tools. It is your task to define and be in control of the digital information streams in our projects. You will be the interlocking connection between the digital design and the construction process. Part of this task will be assisting in research and development projects to push BIM to a higher level. Most likely you will develop smart tools like parametric tools in software such as Rhino with the plugin Grasshopper and Autodesk Revit with the plugin Dynamo.

You have hands-on experience in using digital technologies within (civil-) engineering projects and you have experience with programming. You are creative and have an interest in development of new concepts for smart BIM tools or 3D-concrete printing.

You will be working in the Smart+Healthy Cities team at our office in Singapore and are willing to work temporarily at project locations in the region when required. You will also have a strong connection with our international offices, such as the Netherlands.

What we ask for


  • University degree (BSc) in engineering or architecture
  • Minimum of five years working experience and at least 2 years of experience in applying BIM in engineering or architectural contexts in Singapore
  • Above average interest in digital technologies within engineering projects
  • Ability to assist in Research and Development projects, related to BIM
  • Affinity with programming
  • Pro-active attitude
  • Good communication and inter-personal skills
