Working with an established design team, we created and implemented a BIM protocol and defined the BIM Execution Plan. Further to this, we were responsible for the creation of the architectural BIM that was subsequently coordinated with the structural and services design models to form a coordinated project BIM. Working with the appointed contractor, we have integrated the logistics and construction sequence to take the coordination BIM to the fourth dimension – a fully sequenced construction model.

BIM has helped to minimise coordination issues in relation to the structural, services and architectural elements of both a complex design and intricate steel roof. Rehearsing the construction stages in 4D also improved efficiency and reduced wastage on site. Using BIM has helped to save approximately £2 in the contract sum for every £1 invested in the process.

This model was used during the construction phase to run coordination workshops and BIM.Technologies assisted with the implementation of subcontractors and trade into the federated BIM while utilising the 4D to drive look ahead meetings.

BIM.Technologies are now assisting the FM provider and end-user use all data collected in the model during the design and construction for operational purposes, minimising manual input.
