Teaching: directly responsible for developing and teaching BIM and Design Management modules including: Collaborative Design Management, BIM Auditing and Coordination and Collaborative BIM Design Project (for BSc programmes); as well as Concept Design with BIM (for MSc Building Services); Federated Building Information Modelling (for MSc Construction Management); Design Management by Product & Process Modelling (for MEng Civil Engineering). I also oversaw the implementation of 3D/4D/5D BIM in all modules within the taught programmes.
Research, Enterprise and Consultancy: I was a member of the School's Digital Design & Information Management (DD&IM) research group; supervising 5 PhD students; Co-I for and BIM Lead for CIBSE accredited CPD training via the Building and Industrial Services Pipework Academy (BISPA) co-sponsored by Tata Steel; Leading the BRE-sponsored virtual reality game development for construction hazard perception and response; Co-I and BIM Lead for BIM-Hub, a role-playing and real-time collaborative BIM learning module for virtual working involving final year students of three universities in UK and Canada.
Carrying out computational modelling and simulation for the design of ventilation and energy efficient hospital wards, using dynamic thermal simulation and computation fluid dynamics (CFD), including writing scripts in PHOENICS for automating CFD tasks. This role was sponsored by HaCIRIC Project led by Prof Andrew Price.
Lecturing duties: Architectural Design; Working Drawings; Architectural Graphics; Building Construction Systems, Computer-Aided Building Simulation and Design; Architectural Acoustics & Illumination; Commercial Interior Design; Contracts and Specifications.
Research: Involved in three major research projects/grants including: Investigating Patterns of Architectural Features in Saudi Contemporary Architecture using Data Mining: Case Study of Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam; Evaluation of the Quality of Faculty Housing at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals; Analysing the Impact of IT-Based Curriculum on Undergraduate Students’ Learning in Architecture at KFUPM.
Administrative duties: Supervising Senior Design Projects of Final Year and Summer Training and Coop Students; Preparation of Departmental Annual Reports (3 sessions); Organiser of Departmental Open Days (3 sessions); Coordinator of ARE Students Association (ARESA); Organiser of Short Courses for Environmental Design Club (EDC) and ARESA including programming and simulation for architectural engineering and construction management students; Departmental Webmaster (2007-2009).
