BIM adds value to all projects by working through a defined process

There at two parts to that process – engaging with those responsible for executing BIM and having a clear understanding of the client’s goals and vision. Method Consulting has a great depth of experience in defining and executing BIM successfully.

Experience in executing BIM

Method are an BIM accredited provider with Lloyds of London, initially accredited to BIM Level 2 standard we have retained our accreditation through the transition to the new international BIM standards.

As a business we have been undertaking projects utilising the BIM process for many years. BIM is central to our business and we have invested and continue to invest in developing our capability in line with BIM’s own development. Our experience is not limited to new-build opportunities but also extends to existing listed buildings. We have an expert and dedicated BIM delivery team.

We use BIM as a standardised and collaboratively tailored process that benefits the project and client alike. Each project presents its own requirements and the benefits BIM can bring vary. We ensure that we add value through the BIM process and help our clients realise their project goals.

Across our business we have trained and developed all staff in relation to BIM and its processes. For example our Building Services Engineers are trained in the use of Revit, our model authorising software. This allows them to work alongside our technicians and collaborate to produce information rapidly and to a high quality.

Why Use BIM?

  • BIM enables the client to review and understand their facility digitally even before it is constructed
  • The process engages the design team in a genuinely collaborative approach. Designing out risk and producing a truly sustainable solution facility
  • Step by step process, defining the level of information against each aspect of the design and by when
  • Confidence through the design team and stakeholders in the design
  • Reduced on-site issues through the coordination of different disciplines leading in turn to reduced on-site costs
  • Cost-effective, removing costly onsite issues by digitally constructing the facility first. The process also reduces the risk contractors are exposed to through a clear representation of the facility
  • Facilities Management can be assisted through the use of COBie and Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM). Turning the non-graphical information into key information to run the facility cost effectively after completion
