Building Information Modelling

We support the use of the latest technology to produce better buildings in terms of design and construction, operation, energy performance and sustainability, risk reduction and facilities management.

We see BIM as a core part of our service, and by employing Revit as our preferred 3D authoring tool, consistently deliver projects to Level 2 BIM, working collaboratively in integrated design team environments.

We advise our clients and stakeholders on the potential benefits of BIM in relation to their projects, and how careful selection of the design team can maximise those benefits.

We are therefore well placed to meet the Government’s Construction Strategy for fully collaborative 3D BIM on public sector project procurement.

We carry out continual assessment of our internal work processes, and maintain a studio and on-line based BIM education programme for our employees, helping them to keep abreast of current best practice.

We are committed to contributing to industry wide discussions on the evaluation and implementation of existing BIM solutions and the use of rapidly developing technology
in architecture today.


no.1 court wimbledon

The design team was appointed to deliver the new roof to Court No.1 to BIM maturity Level 2 in accordance with BS 1192:2007 and PAS 1192-2:2013.

The design team and construction  teams worked with the client and the project BIM coordinator to develop a comprehensive EIR and BEP and supporting MIDP document with the aspiration to provide a comprehensive digital asset for use by the AELTC on completion. Frequent and indepth model analysis was carried out through the design and construction programme using Navisworks Manage.

Subcontractors models were incorporated into the federated model to allow for detailed clash resolution to be undertaken with actual construction and fabrication information. The BIM L2 process and associated software tools proved invaluable in the coordination of the MEP services in particular in such a complex building form with very particular services requirement.

Kent PSBP Wave 1 Building Programme

The design team was commissioned to develop a full BIM model for the project to include architecture, structure and services with the intention to issue the model as a building management and teaching resource for use by the Education Funding Authority (EFA). The BIM modelling was to fully comply with the fundamental principles of level 2 information modelling as set out in PAS 1192-2:2013.

The CDE identified for the project facilitated Level 2 BIM maturity as defined by PAS-1192-2:2013 ‘Fundamental principles for Level 2 information modelling’ item G4.  Accordingly, the project information models were developed using a single source platform software, with a single external relational database, and associated design analysis software. The Project Information Model (PIM) was collaboratively developed and maintained within the CDE.  Agreed project BIM deliverables, including LOD’s, applicable to the identified phases were agreed through the MIDP.

Samsung KX in London, UK

The design team for Samsung KX was appointed by the contractor Portview to develop a fully coordinated BIM model for delivery of RIBA stage 4 to completion.

A point cloud survey generated an accurate and measurable 3D representation of the space to tailor fit bespoke designs to the architectural shell. The striking ceiling design is a testament to the level of precision required to achieve the complex geometry to reflect the unique shape of the roof. Our innovative use of 3D modelling enabled the client and contractor to visualise the project through Virtual Reality (VR) and walk-through 3D models.

We have the skills to model design options directly into the 3D environment, which allows the design team to communicate and exchange ideas at key decision-making moments, providing our clients with confidence during a fast track programme.
