BIM

We are qualified to offer advice on BIM for all organisations, including training, implementation, support, team selection or bid assistance, and can provide Project Information Management services.

What is BIM?

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a fully collaborative process, involving the use of 3D models, containing embedded data prepared by all members of the design team, which are shared during design development to ensure a co-ordinated digital version of the building. Its revolutionary approach reduces design co-ordination errors and clashes between building elements, and provides a single resource with all information for the building’s construction and subsequent operation in one location. There is a lot of information regarding BIM available online. If you would like to know more without becoming tangled in the jargon, we would be pleased to chat things over with you.

As BIM filters through the industry to a wide range of sectors and projects, we understand the need for independent and qualified advice and services.
