Building Information Modeling (BIM)

What Is Building Information Modeling?

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a process that oversees all aspects of a building’s data from start to finish. It acts as a design tool that allows architects, engineers and builders to work together in planning, visualising, and documenting building projects digitally before actual construction begins. 

BIM goes beyond design by creating a representation of the building that includes detailed information on construction processes, logistics, operations and maintenance. This model plays a role in project management by enabling the integration of information related to budgets and schedules. After handover, the BIM model serves as a facilities management asset for building owners containing all data and documentation about the structure.

What We Offer

Here, at Clement and Reid we excel in providing high quality BIM services. Our industry leading experience in asset capture technology and digital documentation allows us to provide a wide range of BIM deliverables such as Revit®.

We are here to assist you in creating BIM-ready, survey accurate models. Our dedicated, onshore team works closely with our clients to ensure that each project is specified for each purpose. These BIM-ready models, containing a valuable database of information will provide a strong foundation, essential for any projects success.

What are the key benefits of using BIM?

BIM offers significant advantages including enhanced coordination among stakeholders, reduced errors, and increased efficiency in the construction process. It allows for better visualisation of projects, improved clash detection, and streamlined modifications during the design phase.

How does BIM contribute to cost savings?

By enabling detailed visualisation and acting as a common data environment, BIM helps in identifying potential issues early, which reduces the need for costly changes during construction. It also helps optimise resource allocation and scheduling, leading to more efficient project execution.

Can BIM be used for existing buildings?

Yes, BIM is not only for new projects but can also be applied to existing structures. It involves creating a digital model of the existing building, which can provide the foundation for renovation, maintenance, or expansion projects.

What is the role of a BIM manager?

BIM managers act as the collaborators between the client, engineers, architects and the supply chain. Overseeing the 3D spatial, 2D Drawings, and informational data across the project.

How does BIM integrate with virtual and augmented reality?

BIM models are compatible with virtual and augmented reality technologies, providing immersive experiences that enhance project visualisation. This integration allows stakeholders to explore complex details of a project in a virtual environment before actual construction begins.
