Building Information Modelling
RYAN+LAMB Architects implement BIM across our practice, demonstrating our commitment to providing the highest levels of design excellence and coordination for our clients. Unlike conventional 2D methods of working, BIM allows us to produce fully co-coordinated three-dimensional information across all disciplines, resulting in more efficient work practices and high quality information at every stage of the design process.
BIM for Clients
The BIM process allows us to develop an intelligent 3D digital model which can be easily understood by our clients.
In the early stages of a project BIM can be used extensively as a design and presentation tool, enabling clients to have a fully interactive experience with the ability to walk through a digital model of the building on their tablet or phone. This helps clients to understand the design and therefore provide more complete feedback during the design process.
BIM places the client at the heart of the design process which is key to allowing us move through the project with the confidence of always meeting our client’s expectations.
BIM for Contractors
The BIM process allows us to visualise and spatially coordinate all consultant’s models during the Design Stage when the cost of change is at its minimum. Project coordination is carried out within the virtual environment where issues can be resolved ahead of actual construction, allowing for more efficient project delivery with greatly reduced waste. Having implemented a BIM workflow throughout the Design process, Contractors can assemble project bids with greater confidence. Project logistics and sequencing options can be virtually reviewed within 4D timelines allowing for greater accuracy of site planning.
BIM for Asset/ Facilities Managers
Taking time at the start of a project to understand our Clients requirements with regard to managed assets ensures that as the project moves through the design and construction stage, towards project handover, that all the relevant asset data can be integrated into the virtual model and handed over at completion in a format that supports seamless integration into the clients preferred facilities management system.
