Binh Duy Duong

BIM Coordinator I

A true team player and even a faster learner. 

Binh started out as a Modeler I and quickly realized BIM was actually a lot tougher than he thought. A natural Revit user, Binh knew he was good at Revit and understood his technical capabilities. He originally thought that his Revit skills could allow him to reach his goal of becoming a BIM Manager some day.

 

It wasn’t until when Binh became a Modeler II where he was in charge of a few team members, Binh realized being a good BIM player was more difficult than it looked. Having to depend on the abilities of others and work with a tight schedule, Binh knew he had to work cohesively with his team and lead them down the right path in order for him to complete his tasks.

 

Towards the end of 2016, after being at TBF for 2 years, Binh was promoted to BIM Coordinator I where he excel at guiding his team to complete many difficult tasks. Although Binh knows he still has a lot to learn, but that is something he is very confident that he can achieve without really trying. Binh also knows that in order for him to succeed, he will need to continue to learn as long as he is in the industry.

 

In 2016, Binh was award Most Improved Employee. By winning this award, it shows how much Binh has grown in the last two years. Binh is also an Autodesk Certified Professional 2015 Revit and he earned his BIM Certified Professional certificate in 2015 and had the highest score on the final exam.

Q & A session with Binh Duong.

What attracted you to join TBF?

Opportunity. I think TBF is a place with different types of motivation and dedication. In the last two years at TBF, I've learned a lot, from how to fix the internet to how to make an action plan for the modeling process. People is also an important part of us. I came to realize how important people are in the process when I began working here. Like a bus, we need have correct people before we start to go. TBF's vision that also a point attracted me. By using BIM and VDC's technologies, TBF can improve the AEC industry in Vietnam.

What is proudest achievements at TBF?

My "Most Improved Employee" achievement at the end 2016. I was really surprised to receive it and was completed drunk that night because I celebrated too much. My team also is my proudest achievements at TBF. They are young, enthusiasm and we treat each other like a family.

How did you get into what you do - involving BIM?

Two years prior to me discovering TBF, I had no BIM experience when first time came here. At that time, I really wanted  to improve my Revit skill. So I became a Modeler I. We got to work on a lot of awesome projects. We succeeded with some and failed with others. During that time, I was learning from everyone I met. Until now, I have a group of professional BIM Production members that I continue to learn with everyday.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to get to where you are now?

Be prepared to do a lot of strange tasks. But by doing this, it will make you more flexible and have the ability to improvise. And make sure you set high goals at doing everything in order to achieve your target.

What do you think the types of skills you need in order to succeed at your job?

Visibility because we know that our industry is always changing. So reading the changes happening everyday can be the most valuable skill set you can have when working with BIM. Software skills and knowledge are also important and is the main part of my work.

What have you learned the most being at TBF?

Technical skills, the process, and take responsibilities for what we do. Honestly, I'm not confident at the beginning but I learned a lot from the failures. Plus, people here still have the passion for what they do and to me that is very important.

When did you first learn about BIM?

Maybe two years ago when I decided that I needed to work on the process more effectively than the traditional way. At that time, I found TBF and I wanted to join to seriously learn about BIM and what it does.

What do you see as the big trend in BIM in the next five years?

I believe that people in our industry are still looking at BIM as 3D. But as soon as we move to 4D BIM or may be jumping to 5D, then this will be the big trends in BIM in the next five years.

What is your biggest weakness involving your work?

In my current work, I still make many mistakes because my plans are not always good enough and this can result in many issues and problems. I need to improve more on the QA and QC process.

What is your biggest strengths involving your work?

Passion, I believe that I have the passion in my work and now I trust that TBF is a sustainable environment for my development.

What is your passion outside of work?

Playing football, collecting information about motorbike and also learning everything about BIM.

Where do you see yourself in 2 - 5 years?

I want to be a BIM Coordinator II then BIM Manager. But the most important thing that I want is to be successful in any position. I would also like in next 2 - 5 years to prepare myself for my own business.
