Curator #224: David Delgado


Hello everybody!

My name is David Delgado Vendrell (@daviddelven in social media profiles) and I’m very excited to be curator #224 of @catalanvoices for the week of July 3rd to 9th.

I was born in a wine region called Penedes, near Barcelona and I’m a 39 years old. I’m currently living in Subirats, vineyard’s capital of Catalonia. What an awesome place to live!

I am the son of an Andalusian father and a Catalan mother, an amazing couple of gastronomic and creative entrepreneurs ( Cal Matías ) , restless and highly empathic people, from whom I’ve learned all the essentials. I grew up as an only child in a countryside environment in Gelida (Penedès), providing me with a deep love for nature and local lifestyle.

I studied Architecture, which in my country has a double master’s degree: architectural design and engineering. This feature brings to our work a vast real scope, including structural and facilities knowledge, in addition to basic architectural discipline.

I create my own business in 2004, after the graduation. Since then I’ve been working successfully in DDV Arquitectura, which I dedicate passionately a high percentage of my lifetime. My company services are focused on the use of BIM (Building Information Modelling), especially with openBIM processes, implementing the value this methodology brings to new construction and refurbishment projects, in addition to B2B consultancy technological services.

I love human communication, whether analogue or digital, which I continually enhance its development, especially the second one. I’m obsessed about technological progress and I am in love with proactive people. Thus, I share my local lifestyle with a cosmopolitan concern, which I find both offline and online, in my country or abroad.

My usual activity in my professional environment flows as a proactive member of Catalonia’s BIM Users Group (GuBIMCat) and buildingSMART Spanish Chapter (BSSCh) and its representative on buildingSMART International User Group (IUG) , where building open standards become its main discussion focus. As a result of these intensive tasks, I collaborate with initiatives such as “Comissió Construïm el Futur” (CCF) sponsored by ITeC and the Commission of the Spanish National BIM Strategy (es.BIM), in Catalonia and Spain scopes, respectively. I am also involved as board member of FEGP (Gran Penedès Business Federation) where I share knowledge with other local entrepreneurs, rewardingly far from my own discipline.

My insatiable curiosity, the passion for my job, my networking and communication skills become my best values to keep developing my career in AECOO industry, and as a result returning this value to this society that has allowed me to develop myself as a person, and that I would like you to discover.
