Our Building Information Modelling (BIM) journey began in January 2014 with a significant investment in BIM neutral collaborative software. This software is fully integrated across 2D and 3D measurement and billing, 4D planning and programming and 5D costing.
- Bills of Quantities and cost plans
- 2D to 3D modelling
- Additional tender information such as window schedules
- Rendering, animations and construction sequencing
- Model audits for BIM level 2 compliance
- Clash detection
- BIM consultation and implementation
Through our software we are able to bring in 3D models from almost any native format and automatically group identical BIM components to generate a substantial amount of quantity data for use in preparing cost plans and bills of quantities.
This process reduces measurement time and increases accuracy, it also allows for manipulation and adjustment of component data without affecting the authoring model.
All secured projects are now quantified through BIM as our in-house team of 3D software engineers will create 3D models from 2D drawings.
These models are created for measurement purposes and therefore include a lot more information than most models available at tender stage.
By creating our own models we are able to increase our scope of services.
BIM level 2 compliance has been achieved through a series of coordinated processes and implementation of national standards such as BS1192:2007, PAS1192-2:2013 and COBie-UK-2012 into our project workflows.
We have our own internal BIM protocols and have adopted the AEC Cad standards best practise for open BIM.
We are able to offer a wide range of BIM services from simple 2D to 3D modelling through to fully rendered visualisations and 4D simulation.
We provide our clients with an exceptional level of BIM modelling service tailored to meet and support specific requirements as well as consultation and guidance to implement BIM to achieve BIM level 2 compliance.
