What is BIM?
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction professionals more insight and tools to efficiently plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructure.
BIM is revolutionizing the way projects are delivered across industries, adding intelligence and efficiency to project execution–and connecting teams, data, and workflows at every stage of the project in the cloud for better project outcomes.
OHMG are recognised as construction innovators and as such have been able to adapt to the Government requirement to become BIM Level 2 compliant by April 2016.
Having already delivered BIM projects; OHMG has the relevant experience and capability to do so successfully. OHMG has proven processes and procedures in place which are integrated within the company’s ISO 9001 Quality Management System. These are in full compliance with the relevant government standards.
Benefits of BIM
BIM simulations allow users to compile every aspect of their project into one complete design, including detailed floor plans and 3D models.
You can now stay updated on even the slightest change. Everyone involved is updated on building design allowing coordination and management to be far easier than traditional methods.
BIM has automated clash detection features which detect issues before moving onto the building of the structure This can lead to reductions in tender risk premiums, lower insurance costs and fewer overall variations.
BIM allows incredible flexibility communicating designs in a technical or interactive format. Whether it’s your accrued costs or a virtual model, the data can be presented in a succinct way. It speeds up communication between business and client to give further reassurance of project’s legitimacy.
Each phase of design and construction is fully coordinated. You can easily see step by step processes for materials, crew and so on. With every step being well-documented and accessible, less time is needed for review.
BIM allows you to take projects with you as it is available via mobile app. Models can be accessed any time, on any device. Coordination is therefore much easier between teams and clients.
BIM allows users to produce early stage environmental analysis to explore building orientation, energy use and daylight. This allows us to look at energy efficiency, waste management, water management and much more.
