Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Virtual Reality (VR)

Building Information Modelling (BIM):

Our experienced designers are fully proficient and committed to the implementation of the BIM process in accordance with our Client’s Employer Information Requirements (EIR), the project BIM Execution Plan (BEP) and associated BS EN ISO 19650 standards.

Our civil and structural departments work fluidly within the 3D modelling environment and a BIM workflow to provide a data rich digital full scale model, which can be thought of as a digital prototype prior to the construction stage. This can be virtually reviewed and coordinated with other design team professions, from early stage site planning through to completed technical design. This provides a fully integrated and highly efficient design, omitting potential element clashes, offering huge benefits to our clients, design team members, the contractor and their sub consultants.

Costing and COBie Data

Initial and final costing information can be acquired directly from the model to help to ensure cost and program deliverables are met during design and construction phases.

Once construction is complete, this data rich federated model, containing as built information, provides asset data as required and in a COBie environment for the Facilities Management of the building during its lifecycle, providing long term benefit to the end user.

Virtual Reality (VR)

To complement and enhance our services, we have adopted a fully coordinated Virtual Reality approach to our projects which benefits the design team and our clients greatly. This visual aid provides greater understanding of the building and external works, with greater coordination between all stakeholders and the client being achieved.
