BIM

The strategy you adopt is driven by your project's aspirations. 

You may want to use BIM for building maintenance, or you might need it as an as-built record for future works. Let us set your project up for success by:
 

  • Being your trusted advisor, informing and educating key stakeholders.
     

  • Developing a BIM Implementation Strategy; this sets the BIM protocols for project participants.
     

  • Assisting with the selection of your wider consultant team to align with your BIM requirements.
     

  • Assisting with the development of Requests for Proposals (RFPs) to ensure procurement contracts reflect the level of detail required.

 

Use BIM for...

FACILITIES

MANAGEMENT

Effective facilities management is all about maintaining accurate data. The Building Information Model can continue to offer value long after the project is complete. Facilities Management benefits can include:

  • Streamlined maintenance

  • Improved space management

  • Efficient use of energy

  • Economical retrofits and renovations

COSTING

BIM can be used to assist in the generation of accurate quantity take-offs and cost estimates throughout the lifecycle of a project.

This process allows the project team to see the cost effects of their changes, during all phases of the project, which can help curb excessive budget overruns due to project modifications.

 

Benefits include:

 

  • Precisely quantify modeled materials

  • Quickly generate quantities to assist in the decision making process

  • Saves estimator's time by reducing quantity take-off time

  • Allows estimator's to focus on more value-adding activities in estimating such as: identifying construction assemblies, generating pricing and factoring risks, which are essential for high quality estimates

  • Easier exploration of different design options and concepts within the owner's budget

CONSTRUCTION

Contractors in the world’s top construction markets report that BIM helps them to improve productivity, efficiency, quality and safety on their projects, as well as their own competitiveness.

Particular benefits of implementing BIM, such as reduced errors and omissions, minimizing rework, and the ability to introduce new services are seen as significant advantages to contractors.

COORDINATION

Clash detection is an important and integral part of the BIM process. Identifying clashes between discipline models in the design phase is critical to avoiding costly re-work on site.

Benefits of using BIM for coordination include;

 

  • Reduce and eliminate field conflicts; which reduces RFI's significantly compared to other methods

  • Visualize construction

  • Increase productivity

  • Reduced construction cost; potentially less cost growth (i.e. less change orders)

  • Decrease construction time

  • Increase productivity on site

  • More accurate as-built drawings
