BUILDING INFORMATION MODELLING (BIM)
The BIM process is not simply a compliance procedure, but has been at the core of our operations for almost 20 years. It allows us to work simultaneously alongside architects, engineers, clients, and contractors in a single model, and to identify any issues prior to commencing the project. With growing pressure for superior performance at a competitive cost, building envelopes continue to become increasingly complex. Therefore, early technical input into façade development during the schematic phase of a new building design is critically important. By running a clash detection, it identifies any areas that are in conflict and allows modifications to be made in order to avoid delays, reduce environmental impact, and costly issues in the field.
COMMON BIM WORKFLOW
