BIM

BIM

The UK Construction Industry is moving rapidly to the widespread adoption of collaborative working methods, exemplified by the implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) Systems. BIM is being facilitated by technology, namely 3D design software that allows data to be added covering physical, commercial, environmental and operational information. This data can be added right from the initial stages through to the post completion facilities management of the project. The key to this is that many disciplines can input and share this data, either on a locally or centrally held ‘model’ to which organisations contribute their information.

This evolution in the way we conceive, design, deliver and manage buildings is not simply driven by software manufacturers. The UK Government has announced that it expects all new major construction projects to utilise BIM software, and all the major contractors now expect their design teams to work on an integrated model approach.

 

Experience

We undertake all of our projects utilising BIM. Within the office Nick is the BIM coordinator and has also been so on several large-scale complex projects including Bristol Temple Meads train station regeneration which involved managing the station’s point cloud data.

As a result of undertaking a project using BIM, NBS specifications will be completely integrated into the model and various design and cost options can be quickly evaluated and assessed. Schedules are automatically produced and anomalies between plans, elevations, sections and details are eliminated.

 

For clients, there are clear advantages in having their project
as a BIM model:

  • They will be able to visualise the project at an early stage, whilst being able to assess alternative design solutions. Project costs should be reduced and more tightly controlled.
  • On handover, a BIM model will be invaluable to FM managers and building owners, incorporating services maintenance regimes, schedules of equipment and FF&E, area schedules and enabling future changes to the building to be incorporated into the BIM model. For contractors, there are other considerable advantages:
  • Waste should be reduced, quantities can be established from the model, and offsite fabrication should be facilitated.
  • Construction sequencing can be tested and developed using the BIM model.
  • Ideally, all key subcontractors would utilise the model to ensure coordination of components and that clashes can be designed out.
