BIM

What is Building Information Modelling (BIM)? 

The RIBA, CPIC and BuildingSmart jointly proposed a definition of BIM for the UK construction industry:

BIM is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility creating a shared knowledge resource for information about it forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life cycle, from earliest conception to demolition.

In practical terms for BIM, this means that a virtual building model is developed and information is collated from manufacturers or through the traditional decision-making process of design. This model is analysed, tweaked, tested and revised, before the building begins on site. BIM is the way forward enabling your business to reduce errors, lead time and increase your ROI.

With Cadspec’s BIM Consultancy service we can help you in creating and defining your BIM execution plan with advice and guidance on Autodesk based software, plus training and consultancy across the UK. If you are unsure where to start or what to do, we’ll support you every step of the way and ensure you’re able to make the most of the significant opportunities that working within a BIM environment brings.

With demand for BIM compliant projects growing at an increasing rate, it is important to understand where to start and how to go about getting involved in an effective, structured way. In our experience, some companies are going into BIM blind and they simply agree that they can deliver level 2 BIM and sometimes even level 3 on bids when they have no idea what is involved. This is costing real money and business due to their inability to deliver. Commitment to BIM needs to be fully understood to ensure you are not promising too much and that your entire business is operating collaboratively with a BIM ethos without unnecessary risk. Having successfully worked with numerous companies to implement the move to BIM, we believe there are a number of key steps to follow in developing your implementation plan.
