Building information modelling

Building information modelling (BIM) is a way of managing and sharing information and data relating to a project, by creating an accurate 3D version of every detail.

3D planning

By producing a 3D model, we can test every aspect of the design in advance, plan the best way to tackle a project and solve problems before they occur. We use BIM to model plant movements and sequence clashes, all helping to ease logistics and save programme time.

We have already developed an industry-leading pile schedule to improve the sharing and accuracy of crucial design information. We are adopting the latest BIM technology to ensure we can meet the requirements of our customers as the industry adopts BIM widely in the future.

Cost saving technology

The technology links up with mobile devices in the field. This enables on-site access to the 3D model and the latest drawings, programme and records. Full adoption of BIM across the whole project can translate into big cost savings by preventing defects and shortening our time on site.
