HERE OUR THE THREE MAIN SERVICES WE OFFER TO DESIGNERS AND PRE-CONSTRUCTION PROFESSIONALS
Implementing BIM will add value to your organisation if executed and managed in a sustainable way. Having a well thought out plan for integrating BIM with your design, analysis, and/or management processes helps maximise potential benefit, reduce BIM related risks, and maintain a focus on your priorities. Our BIM implementation services focus on three key steps:
Strategy – It is imperative that you target the discipline specific aspects of BIM that will add value to your company. At this stage of implementation we help identify BIM opportunities that facilitate your business objectives and risks that can prevent you from maximising BIM benefits. The result is a roadmap that aligns implementation with your company culture, resource capabilities, and performance targets.
Process Review & Development – Once we know how BIM aligns with your business strategy, we shift focus to your information production and management workflows. An ‘as is’ business process review tells us how you currently create and use project information, which feeds into the development of a ‘to be’ process that incorporates BIM. Your ‘to be’ process, associated KPIs, and support documentation become the reference points for sustainable BIM implementation.
Our approach to training focuses on targeting the specific aspects of BIM that are relevant to your firm and projects.
Integrating project planning and controls during pre-construction stages helps reduce risk, satisfy statutory requirements and increases the value of your services. In addition to practical benefits, our pre-construction project planning and controls services provides you with insights that can be used to improve performance. We make this data accessible through the following services to give you a true view of your projects as they progress:
Pre-Construction Project Planning – Construction health and safety starts during pre-construction stages. We bring constructability reviews and simulations into projects at an early stage to ensure design and cost management account for health and safety considerations. Addressing health and safety during pre-construction will help you fulfil Construction Design and Management (CDM) requirements and add to cost certainty.
Quantification & Revision Management – Traditional value engineering cycles result in significant wasted effort by pre-construction project teams. Our concurrent quantification and costing techniques enable project teams to manage cost in tandem with early stage design and analysis activities. Project decisions can be made with cost certainty and control in mind, resulting a more informed change management process.
Good data adds value to projects and poor project data adds risk. Managing construction information is similar to managing a sports team:
Our information management services follow this principle to ensure pre-construction teams perform to all-star levels:
BIM Requirements Review & Bid Support – A clear understanding of project requirements is needed to assess BIM resourcing and commercial impacts. Following a review of bid documentation, we provide advice for pre-submission queries, identify areas for post-contract negotiation, and supporting documentation for your bid submission. Communicating your understanding of BIM requirements, outlining your approach to drive value through BIM, and presenting a fee aligned with client targets strengthen your bid submissions.
Our BIM execution methodology and supporting tools help optimise the production and collaborative use of pre-construction team information.
Construction & Asset Information Model Production – Transitioning model information from pre-construction to construction and handover project stages requires an additional level of development to continue adding value. Our model production services to can help bridge this gap. The right scope of technical support can enhance project deliverables and information.
