Building information modelling (BIM)

BIM is a combination of both technology and integrated ways of working. When implemented correctly it can underpin improvements in quality, definition and delivery of outputs, together with the implementation of a collaborative culture.

What is BIM?

The desire to reduce capital costs, operational costs and mitigate the impact of carbon from both the construction and operation of the built environment is a pivotal driver for change. At the heart of these objectives is building information modelling (BIM), which in simple terms can support the adoption of collaborative behaviours and practices, connecting intelligent design to information-based technologies to unlock efficient ways of working throughout the project life cycle.

There is no fully accepted definition of BIM, however it can be thought of as a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility, creating a shared knowledge resource and forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life cycle, from earliest conception to demolition.

Your challenges

What we do

Our project managers and cost managers are able to lead and operate in a BIM environment to ensure the predefined BIM strategy and regional recognised BIM standards are adhered to by the team and an asset information model (AIM) is delivered at the end of the construction phase.

Our professional BIM team service offer includes the following:

Facilities management strategic planning – we help our clients manage life cycle costs to obtain the maximum value from the asset by the use of the BIM information and the management of the asset information model (AIM).

Contract services - our specialist contract services team provide contract and strategic advice to ensure a robust BIM aligned contract framework is put in place and the requisite drafting is included in the team's contracts to clearly define each party's specific BIM role and responsibilities.
