BIM Technology

< back to services
Since 2010 we have been promoting the use of BIM on all projects which will deliver a collaborated design, provide a soft landing for the Client and an asset for the life cycle of the building. We have integrated our BIM methodology to deliver a single process across both design and modeling. All our BIM models are delivered to Level 2 in accordance with PAS1192-2. The adoption of BIM allows the creation of a virtual building, providing dynamic visibility giving the Design Team the ability to avoid clashes, constraints and obstacles early in the design process
We engage with all stakeholders, from the Client and Design Team to the Building Operator and Construction Team to ensure a clear and concise BIM strategy. The BIM strategy for any given project is defined in our BIM Execution Plan which reflects the requirements as set out in the Employers Information Requirements document. We have design standards and protocols in place to arrange the production, distribution and quality of construction information as recommended in BS 1192:2007 and PAS 1192-2. Clash detection and co-ordination can be carried out across a number of platforms ranging from Naviswork and Autodesk Glue to Revits own interface check tool. Clashes are either resolved or noted for discussion at a clash detection workshop. Models are then validated prior to issuing, using Solibri or Naviswork depending on the requirements of the EIR.
