BIM

With a big shift towards Building Information Modelling (BIM) in recent years we have had to adapt quickly to meet the needs of our clients.

BIM begins with the production of an intelligent 3D model and enables document management, coordination and simulation during the entire lifecycle of a project (plan, design, build, operation and maintenance).

REVIT

We fully utilise Revit and it’s powerful tools for the production of our building services models.

As an outsourcing business, we can produce or progress Revit models at any stage of a project, often developing models up to stage 4 on behalf of consultants and stage 5 onwards on behalf of MEP contractors. We can also assist with design development and work closely with MEP contractors on design and build contracts.

MODEL BASED DESIGNS

CAD

Despite a big push towards BIM in recent years, the demand for 2D CAD drawing production remains high as many smaller projects do not necessitate the need for Revit/BIM models.

We can assist your business at any point during a project or take full control from the offset. Whether it’s some assistance during the conceptual design stage or the production of fully loaded setting-out drawings during the construction stage of a project.

TRIMBLE SKETCHUP

Trimble SketchUp is a 3D modelling program for a wide range of drawing applications such as architectural, interior design, civil and mechanical engineering.

Since introducing Trimble SketchUp into our business model we have found it to be an extremely useful tool for creating 3D visuals. We can quickly develop conceptual 3D models for a variety of purposes, whether it be for planning applications, layout proposals or more complex technical models.

VR & DIGITAL SURVEYS

Our VR & digital survey services enable us to navigate through sites and buildings in real time (combining Revit Live services with the latest Oculus hardware), identifying clashes or other potential problem areas that are often difficult to spot during the Revit modelling and coordination processes.

Using the latest 3D laser scanning methods we are able to obtain detailed precision surveys which can later be remodelled in Revit.

BIM

Building Information Modelling  

With a big shift towards Building Information Modelling (BIM) in recent years we have had to adapt quickly to meet the needs of our clients.

BIM begins with the production of an intelligent 3D model and enables document management, coordination and simulation during the entire lifecycle of a project (plan, design, build, operation and maintenance).

BIM is used to design and document building and infrastructure designs. With every detail of the building modelled in BIM it can be used by all for analysis to explore design, create visualisations to enhance our understanding of how a building will be constructed, identify potential challenges early on and see what the building will look like before it’s built.

The model can then be further developed and used to generate the design documentation for construction with the inclusion of specific COBie data inputs.

We adopt the principles outlined in the BEP to ensure that all models and processes are compliant and meet our clients needs adhering to all relevant standards.

Plan 

Inform project planning by combining reality capture and real-world data to generate context models of the existing built and natural environment.

Design 

During this phase, conceptual design, analysis, detailing and documentation are performed. The preconstruction process begins using BIM data to inform scheduling and logistics.

Build 

During this phase, fabrication begins using BIM specifications. Project construction logistics are shared with trades and contractors to ensure optimum timing and efficiency.

Operate 

BIM data carries over to operations and maintenance of finished assets. BIM data can be used down the road for cost-effective renovation or efficient deconstruction too.

Revit

Model Based Designs

We fully utilise Revit and it’s powerful tools for the production of our building services models.

As an outsourcing business, we can produce or progress Revit models at any stage of a project, often developing models up to stage 4 on behalf of consultants and stage 5 onwards on behalf of MEP contractors. We can also assist with design development and work closely with MEP contractors on design and build contracts.

Many of the projects we are involved with are fully designed by consultancies, however we understand the realities of a construction site and the difficulties project managers and engineers face when producing fully coordinated working drawings.

We can also assist with bespoke Revit family production, providing BIM libraries for manufacturers with the inclusion COBie parameters for a smooth transition within BIM L2 projects.

In addition to assisting your business through all stages of a project we can also manage your online data management to help free up valuable time.

Having worked on a number of construction sites we fully appreciate that relaying information on paper is not always straightforward so our office door is always open and we are always available for site visits.

Our CAD outsourcing services extend beyond our office environment. We are also available for site meetings, site visits or surveys and can work closely with the site engineers and project managers to ensure the entire process is as smooth as possible for your business.

3D Laser Scanning

This is now the most up to date method to obtain detailed precision surveys

Why use 3D Scanning

  • Remote measurements can be taken safety within critical areas along with time critical environments
  • Fast data capture speeds on site
  • Provides a complete representation of the whole site
  • No manual observations limiting sighting errors, improved accuracy reducing risks
  • Safer to measure in confined spaces
  • Overlay with imagery for 3D visualization
  • Data can be used by everyone within the company
  • Obtain more data so that projects further in time can look at the data and have no costly revisits to site
  • Surveys can be carried out anywhere and anytime day or night

Applications

  • Topographic Surveys
  • As-built Surveys
  • Site/Engineering Surveys
  • Forensics
  • Heritage Site/Conservation Surveys
  • Archaeology
  • Architectural Restoration
  • Deformation Analysis
  • Pipeline Surveys
  • Profiles and Volumes
  • Reservoirs
  • Rail track
  • Engineering Fabrication
  • Motorways – confined space
  • Bridges & Gantries
