BIM

The world of Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a vast and confusing place, which can be difficult to access without lots of technical knowledge – we’re challenging that and have provided a simple video to demonstrate the visual drawing advantages of utilising REVIT software as part of the BIM process.

All projects from 2016 will need to be undertaken utilising BIM Level 2 as a minimum – we’re ahead of the curve and can boast many completed projects already – we want to make sure we can demonstrate a rich and comprehensive experience of delivered projects to help teams secure funding.

What is BIM?

BIM (Building Information Modelling) can be described as the construction industries method to standardise the sharing of all asset (building components) information through the use of three dimensional models that contain individual building elements, rich in data, which can be extracted and delivered electronically during both the construction and lifecycle of the project.

Why BIM?

The UK Government believe its successful implementation can reduce Capital cost and the carbon burden from the construction and operation of the built environment by 20%, these gains will be achieved through delivering a higher level of information enabling more informed decisions that ensure all performance expectations can be realised.

Our Services

Operating at a BIM maturity level 2 our established workflows and processes, developed over a number of successful projects, have sharing of information for both construction and operation at its core.  To implement this new way of working we have invested in Autodesk’s Building and Infrastructure Design Suites, widely regarded as the industry standard for delivering BIM.

Experience gained through our projects has given us the ability to collaborate, either as part of a project team or as the project lead, we can provide a structured information delivery method along with model interrogation processes such as clash detection, using Autodesks Navisworks, and construction sequencing (4D) linking to contractors programmes and even health & safety working requirements.

 The Governments Construction strategy deadline of 2016 is fast approaching, our response has been swift, as early adopters of this information rich process, we have already demonstrated successful outcomes for our projects using our established BIM strategies.
