Because I was a BIM Coordinator I have had the opportunity to lead an  cutting-edge technology initiative in my company. I was responsilbe for implementation and use of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality in the whole company.  

Here I am testing AR and VR hardware in our VR company room. 

Becoming a BIM Coordinator also opened up many other opportunities for me.

Thanks to the skills I gained in this position, I was able to attend conferences as a speaker and present topics of interest to me. I taught others.

Thanks to this, I met many colleagues from the industry and developed my professional network.

As a BIM Coordinator, you may have the opportunity to work remotely, which can provide flexibility and work-life balance.
