Meet the... BIM Manager
Wednesday 6th May 2020
Find more about Daniel Staniforth, our BIM (Building Information Modelling) Manager at Polypipe Building Products.
What is your position at Polypipe and how long have you been there?
I’ve been working at Polypipe Building Products for about 2 and a half years now but I previously worked for Polypipe Ventilation and was there for around 2 years.
What does a typical day at Polypipe look like for you?
Reams of product data, lots of spreadsheets and a lot of work in Autodesk Revit to develop models.
What are three words you associate with Polypipe?
Successful, Evolving, Inclusive
What is the best part of working for Polypipe?
As a Polypipe employee I’ve personally found that opportunities are given to you where you work hard and show your talents. Support and training are offered where you need it, so it’s a great place to grow.
Lots of changes have happened within our department and around the business recently so it’s an exciting time to be part of the Polypipe team. I’m sure that willingness to adapt will put is in a positive place to bounce after recent events.
What is your proudest moment at Polypipe?
We recently breezed through our stage 1 gap assessment for our BS8541 gap assessment. A lot of hours went in to getting us here compared to where we were so it was validation of the hard work everybody has put in across the group.
There’s some work to do yet before our Stage 2, which will get us our kitemark license, but I’m confident we’ll get there.
If a movie was made about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?

Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us?
I’ve walked from one coast of the country to the other, because, why not?
