BIM: Early contractor involvement means less issues on site

Each project is stronger because of the input of specialists on the team.  A contractor’s expertise in making a design tangible is more beneficial the earlier they can be involved. View the latest lesson in our series of 50 Lessons Learned from using BIM on a research...

BIM: Use BIM for best logistical sequencing

BIM can be used to plan logistics during the construction phase.  It is often easier to visualise tasks when they are in 3D compared to looking at 2D plans so the optimum arrangement of activities can be identified more easily. View the latest lesson learned from our...

Procurement routes influence BIM’s effectiveness

Choosing the right procurement route amplifies BIM’s benefits so this is an important consideration which impacts on time and cost. View the latest lesson from our BIM research project funded by Innovate...

BIM: Evaluate BIM before proceeding with implementation

BIM  is a step-change in efficiency in general but all projects are not created equal.  Some projects may see a plethora of benefits from BIM.  For others, the return of investment may be difficult to identify. View our latest lesson learned from using BIM for a...

BIM: Clash avoidance is preferable to detection

Both major and minor clashes will be picked up in a BIM model.  Avoiding clashes by coordinating with the design team involves less work than resolving an existing clash so it is more efficient to avoid rather than detect.  Catch up with the latest lesson learned from...

BIM: Design team workshops create faster solutions

Using the model as a guide, working together as a team through design issues expedites the time to finding a solution rather than working through problems by yourself. View the latest in our BIM series of lessons from a research project funded by Innovate...

BIM: Leave ample time for design and quality checks

New processes require time to be embedded.  Leaving as much time as possible for tasks to be completed by the team will assist BIM’s successful execution. Catch up with our latest lesson learned from using BIM on a research project funded by Innovate...

BIM: Embed BIM by upskilling everyone

BIM has the best chance of becoming embedded in your organisations culture when you don’t favour a few individuals as “champions.” Catch up with our latest lesson learned about BIM from our Innovate UK research project. We’ll publish 8 more in the...

BIM: Detail how BIM changes project processes

Clients who haven’t used BIM will naturally be wary of using a new process.  Provide certainty by detailing what will be different to help alleviate concerns. View our latest BIM lesson gained from our Innovate UK funded research project into...

BIM: Client support makes a big difference

It is great to have a team engaged in delivering a project using BIM.  One of the biggest factors to BIM’s success is if the client also supports its use. Catch up with our latest lesson learned using BIM on a research project funded by Innovate...

BIM: 3D can be used to create 2D designs

Although 2D designs are still required in traditional tendering, it is worth noting that 2D designs can be created using 3D. Catch up with the latest lessons learned from our BIM research project funded by Innovate...

BIM: More pre-authored BIM objects are needed for housing

One of the benefits of BIM is the speed in which design can occur using pre-authored BIM objects.  For housing, manufacturers still have some way to go before designers can use BIM to its full advantage. View our latest BIM lesson learned from our Innovate UK funded...

BIM: Object libraries enable faster design

Object libraries in BIM software speed up design by enabling designers to select a ready-designed object from the program’s library for use when they design a project.  Utilising BIM libraries during design increases efficiency. Catch up with our latest lesson learned...
