Working together

Working together we can achieve amazing things. Through building information modelling we work closely with our clients and supply chain partners in a shared digital space, and play our part in Construction 2025.

The use of BIM in design, construction and facilities management is creating the perfect learning environment at Woodlands School, Essex.

Building information modelling

Building information modelling (BIM) improves our ability to plan, construct and maintain buildings or infrastructures. We capture more detailed information and make it readily available in commonly understood formats for our clients.

Common data environment

The key to collaboration in BIM is the common data environment (CDE); the system collects, manages and distributes all data and information generated across the project. Models, plans, costs and all other project information is stored in the cloud, making the CDE the single source of the truth. With project teams sometimes running to many hundreds of people, it allows information to be easily shared and updated together.

Being in a digital space, information is accessible 24/7, wherever and whenever it is needed. Handheld tablets such as iPads are used, allowing models and plans to be accessible on and off site.

People not packages

As an early adopter of digital engineering technologies, we understand how to get the best out of BIM.

It's knowledge that we're keen to share with our supply chain. It is only by helping the wider industry that we will be able to deliver the best solutions for clients.

We've developed a number of training and development courses, from general awareness and BIM theory through to detailed software proficiency guides.

Greater collaboration across industry helps us to deliver carbon and cost savings, while reducing risk and delivering projects more efficiently.
