Summers-Inman is pleased to announce the opening of its new Qatar office, based in Doha.

Summers Inman - Qatar

Summers Inman - Qatar

Following 3 visits to the Gulf state of Qatar, Summers-Inman is now registered to work as Quantity Surveyors and Cost Consultants.

Led by Summers-Inman Managing Director David Taylor, who made an exploratory visit in 2012, we now have 3 Chartered Quantity Surveyors that have completed all of the necessary qualifying criteria and who successfully attended a technical interview in June of this year.

We are pleased to report that following a series of meetings in Doha with our new “partners”, locally based Lusail Consultants, we are now bidding for work in the region. Qatar is regarded as the richest country in the world, with a massive development plan not only for the 2022 FIFA World Cup but also to deliver the aims of the Qatar 2030 Vision.

We are already looking at opportunities in the Health, Education and Leisure sectors and further visits are planned for August and September to develop relationships with our Qatari partners and to promote this new initiative.

Summers-Inman Building Information Modelling Team Win North-East BIM Competition with Vico Office


Summers-Inman recognised as one of the UK’s leading consultancy for Integrated Construction Management Solutions & Services, recently won the North-East BIM Competition, delivering multiple project models, estimates, schedules, and Owner materials in less than 8 hours.

The event was designed by the North East BIM Hub to engage with BIM Novices in the North East of England to show what can be achieved with BIM and to highlight the multitude of skills needed to properly execute BIM on a commercial construction project.

This is very different from “Hollywood BIM” or spinning a model on a screen to impress an Owner.  In order for a BIM project to share efficiencies with all constituents, it needs to be executed to an agreed and recognised standard. This means the model must contain solid geometry in order to contribute viable quantities which are used in construction estimates and schedules.  It also must be coordinated with all of the models from each of the other consultants.

Summers-Inman, who have recently invested in the purchase of Vico Office and the Customer Success Program all supplied by Rapid5D, are active members of the North East BIM Hub, part of the Government Task Force implementing the UK Governments BIM focused procurement strategy for all capital projects.

Summers-Inman assembled a team largely made up of novices and aimed from the outset to go beyond the mandatory brief to provide real deliverables related to their core disciplines of Project Management, Cost management and FM Consultancy.

The competing teams were all given the same information at the beginning of the day: a brief for a proposed community centre including goals and a 3D model of the existing site topography in *.dwg format.  At the end of the eight hours, the teams were asked to submit a summary proposal including methodology, a BIM Execution Plan, a federated multi-disciplinary model, the results of clash detection, and schedule simulation.
