EXTENDING OUR BIM EXPERTISE
The application of various aspects of BIM delivers benefits on
many of our projects and we continue to build on this success.
In the nuclear sector BIM optimises clash detection and provides a highly effective means of analysing construction strategies. This can deliver wide-ranging benefits in terms of design and construction certainty.
Assimilating the complex requirements of our specialist subcontractor with those of our design team, BIM was key to delivery of the automated moving floor at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
Increasing overall project predictability and flexibility to accommodate client changes, BIM has brought many benefits to the delivery of Project Fresco, a high-tech paint manufacturing facility.
Our BIM approach has evolved through its application
over the years across a variety of projects.
BIM complements our established and highly effective working
methods for all phases of our projects, from design and
construction to handover and on-going operation.
Our approach promotes the involvement of all members of the project
team and has been used to deliver benefits at various stages
throughout the project lifecycle.
This includes using BIM to:
· Explore innovative design and construction methodologies
· Resolve buildability and sequencing issues
· Plan for safety
· Identify modularisation and prefabrication opportunities
· Review commissioning, maintenance and access requirements
· Improve facilities management going forward
