We know that using Building Information Modelling (BIM) demands clear and unambiguous project management, a lean approach, and collaborative engagement throughout the delivery team. What makes BIM an incredibly powerful tool is that it considers a project in a broader environment and across the whole building lifecycle. At U+A, BIM projects start with the end in mind. Our approach ensures successful BIM implementation through sharing expertise and mentoring. We promote a collaborative work process across all projects.
U+A BIM Process
We have the expertise to deliver BIM appropriate to project-specific requirements; for example, by providing a greater appreciation of the building physics. BIM data allows a more accurate assessment in terms of code compliance and performance benchmarking. The BIM environment is linked to building service design analysis, through parametric tools and links between documentation and analysis.
We actively engage with leading Developers, Government, and Industry working parties to ensure that BIM models are constructed and aligned with industry best practices. An in-depth appreciation of cross-discipline platforms and the associated interface issues that provide Architectural, Interior Design, Landscape, and Structural models with effective collaboration. BIM data can then inform project and cost management processes, facilitating enhanced construction sequencing, 4D, and 5D analysis. We are proficient in developing models from LOD 100 at Conceptual stages up to LOD350 at the IFC stage.
We work with project teams in one integrated standard data environment (CDE) – BIM 360 Design for most of our projects. It ensures a single vision for the latest revision of the project. We collaborate on 3D or 2D based issues in real-time with instant notifications on changes. We can find, create, and track issues out of any platform. Coordination is seamless. We can keep track of what’s happening in any BIM project. Identifying, assigning, managing, and solving any problems throughout all the phases of the project. BIM360 design unifies BIM intelligence making it immediately accessible and actionable for the full project team. It reviews clash detection to follow progress or resolve challenges.
Our role as a BIM Experts involves developing a BIM Strategy suitable for your project and its unique circumstances. This strategy has been built upon the foundation of knowledge acquired through our BIM project delivery, where we have been the design team. We utilize the same BIM principles we have created through years of evaluating and refining BIM processes.
