Building Information Modelling
3D Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the way of the future. It’s a fundamental extension of design documentation and is the next generation of design and project delivery.
While cost is always considered very carefully in any project, the value of effective BIM management is expressed by the overall efficiency of your project delivery.
Our BIM experts work alongside you throughout your project. An intelligent 3D design model helps you visualise your project and, by providing greater project insight earlier in the design and construction process, supports you to make more informed decisions. We can even help you understand how your building will best be managed once it is completed.
Excellence in BIM avoids on-site construction issues arising from poor coordination between consultants. Eliminating clashes of services and structure also circumvents the need for ongoing redesign, while mitigating programme slippage and cost variation.
Further, BIM improves planning, cost forecasting and overall project control. By linking to other construction-based software, our BIM experts ensure more accurate estimating, procurement and construction waste management.
The modelling makes it easier for teams to collaborate and communicate. Construction phasing is enhanced by contractors gaining clear insight into the building construction process.
The BIM process is managed by one of our experienced BIM managers via a documented BIM execution plan. Level of Development (LOD) is considered and documented to achieve the design output required for the project. This level of engagement can be confined to clash detection on the primary services routes, right through to as much detail as required to LOD 500 linking into a clients’ building management system.
