DCT Group Sponsor DCT United

DCT United was set up by a group of like-minded friends with the idea stemming from the COVID-19 lockdown, founding member Joe Lumumba explained. “Many of us were finding the lockdown tough, we didn’t see each other, and with many of us working from home, everyone was dealing with their own set of challenges, and we needed to find a way to reconnect through our love of sport,” adds Joe. The group of friends has one main objective with the creation of the new team, and that is “to create a positive environment that harbours both positive mental, and physical benefits”, adds Joe Lumumba.

The ethos is similarly shared by DCT United sponsors Digital Construction Technologies Group Founder and CEO, Joseph Mady. “For men in their 30s and 40s meeting new friends and staying fit can be a challenge combined with balancing a career and family life can seem daunting. We hope that with DCT United we create a positive and open environment for men from all backgrounds to meet once a week. We are delighted to be backing this initiative and are looking forward to seeing the fruits of their labor, in the shape of a trophy at some stage” adds Joseph Mady, CEO of Digital Construction Technologies Group.

Joseph Mady from DCT Group on creating the BIM Cube.

Joseph Mady, a long-term enthusiast of BIM, tells Paul Milligan how he created a simple, cost effective easy-to-use immersive system that puts the technology right where it needs to be.

Mady’s latest project is the BIM Cube, which began when a client, Collen Construction, approached DCT with a concept to create an on-demand centre for staff out on a building site. “We did a needs analysis and looked at VR to see if it met the client’s needs but decided against it. When we looked at what the client wanted, the goal was to do video calls so the staff could walk into the cube and make calls in the middle of a construction site. They needed to talk to someone to get something resolved from somebody who might be in a different country. We looked at the model and the drawings, getting access to information quickly was the key driver and that’s what we built together with Collen, and that became the BIM Cube.”
