Dr Arto Kiviniemi, Professor of Digital Architectural Design, is one of the internationally leading experts in the integrated Building Information Modelling (BIM) which he has developed both in Finland and internationally since 1996. In 1997-2002 Arto lead the Finnish national R&D programme which created the foundation for Finland position as one of the leading countries adopting BIM. In May 2010 he moved to UK, first to the University of Salford, where he initiated the first MSc BIM programme in the UK, and in September 2013 he started in his current position at the University of Liverpool. Internationally Arto’s main activities have been related to the International Alliance for Interoperability, now known as buildingSMART International. Arto was one of its founding members in 1996 and acted as the Chairman of the International Council and Executive Committee 1998-2000, Deputy Chairman 2000-2002 and Chairman of the International Technical Management Committee 2005-2007. Currently he is a member of the International Technical Advisory Group. Arto has presented over 100 keynote and invited lectures in international seminars and conferences around the world since 1996. For his international merits in developing integrated BIM Arto received the FIATECH CETI Outstanding Researcher Award in March 2009 and the Order of the Knight of White Rose of Finland in December 2012.

M.Sc. Architecture, Ph.D. in Environmental Design, LEED AP 
Ms Iordanova holds a masters’ degree in architecture and a Ph.D. in Environmental Design from Université de Montréal. She is currently BIM Manager at Pomerleau. After a few years of architectural practice, she taught architecture at the University of Montreal and was a researcher at the GRCAO (Groupe de recherche en conception assistée par ordinateur) and the GRIDD, where she completed postdoctoral studies. Ms Iordanova authored multiple scientific articles in various domains: from architectural design to quality-focused building construction, with digital technologies and integrated conception as common threads. At Pomerleau, she is currently implementing technologies, such as BIM, for building and infrastructure construction.

“My goal is to contribute to the success of organizations by helping them achieve teamwork, innovation, sustainability and people building. My multidisciplinary background has brought me to focus my research on organizational engineering, innovation and sustainability. These subjects are at the heart of my current research interests.”
