Parveen Sharma, CEO at The BIM Engineers
Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
Parveen Sharma: The AEC industry (Architectural, Engineering, and Construction) is a manpower-intensive industry. The projects are getting bigger, and more complex and need quick turn-around time. Most companies don’t have the manpower available to mobilize on short notice. ‘The BIM Engineers’ provide that additional manpower
(BIM Architects/Engineers) to cater to that surge capacity requirements. We call ourselves a ‘Surge Capacity Partner’. This also shields the companies against the possible consequences of ‘Short term Hiring’ or ‘Hire and Fire’ policies. This also helps the Design/Construction companies to make a balance between on-roll employees and staffed employees (sources from ‘The BIM Engineers’). Those companies don’t have to invest in hiring/waiting/hardware/software/office/internet etc. and ‘The BIM Engineers’ is a one-stop solution for short or long-term staffing requirements for Design/CAD/BIM staff requirements. This arrangement also shields our clients against any possible ‘recession’.
Great Companies: What are the various services provided by The BIM Engineers?
Parveen Sharma: ‘The BIM Engineers’ provide BIM/Design/CAD staffing services to global clients. We provide BIM Modeling, Design Development, Clash Detection, Coordination, Value engineering, and Quantity Surveying services to the AEC industry.
Great Companies: What makes The BIM Engineers different from hundreds of other similar service providers?
Parveen Sharma: ‘The BIM Engineers’ with its global presence in 20+ Countries and experienced manpower of 500+ Engineers, have created a niche space for itself. The unique proposition of quickly available experienced manpower suits large multinational clients and they see ‘The BIM Engineers’ as a strong partner to cater to their short-term and long-term staffing requirements.
Great Companies: What were the struggles and challenges you faced and how did you overcome them?
Parveen Sharma: Creating a new business category, and introducing it to some of the largest Design and Construction companies around the world was a challenging task. However, with our innovative team, we were able to showcase the benefit of collaborating with ‘The BIM Enginers’, and clients were convinced about our business model. Now we are working with 22 out of the top 30 Design companies in the world.
Great Companies: How do you plan to grow in the future? What does 5 years down the line look like for The BIM Engineers?
Parveen Sharma: ‘The BIM Engineers’ have witnessed a 50%+ Growth rate in the last few years and we are targeting to become a global company with a presence in 40+ countries with the largest pool of experience and trained resources to cater to the ever-growing AEC industry. We want to achieve these goals by introducing new cutting-edge technologies and bringing more efficiency to the engineering sector.
Great Companies: If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?
Parveen Sharma: Persistence is the key. If you believe in your business model, try to showcase the strong side of your idea and people will believe in it.
