Digital Workflows and Computational Design Panel

The Digital Workflows and Computational Design Panel helps members keep pace with the rapid pace of technological development in design practice.

The panel reviews current digital practice across a range of organisations and also identifies gaps in current education and graduate training.


  • Chairman
  • Representative of the BIM Panel
  • Up to 14 other members
  • Corresponding members


Get involved:

As an experienced practitioner in Digital Workflows you will work with the panel to provide insight and guidance to members.

You will attend four meetings a year and have full access to all related documents. You will undertake some work between meetings.

Participating in the panel is a great way to contribute to your Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

We invite expressions of interest in committee membership each September, contacting all members except Student Members.

Contact the panel if you have questions about their work.
