Building information modelling (BIM)
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is emerging as a major change in the way building projects are procured, designed, constructed and managed. In simple terms, BIM enhances and connects the analysis, design, documentation and visualisation elements of a project. While improving those elements offers significant internal synergies and efficiencies, powerful BIM systems also facilitate closer collaboration with external partners, stakeholders and clients. The result – when implemented effectively – is a building that better serves its intended function, ultimately delivering more value to the end client and the people who actually use the building. Holmes Consulting is now creating building models that are able to be used for both structural performance (i.e. analysis and design), as well as to describe the physical characteristics of a building.
The concept and application of BIM is already becoming more popular, and is already having a profound impact on the way the industry delivers work. From a structural perspective, outputs are rapidly becoming more intelligent, adaptable and synergistic with elements of projects and other stakeholders. Accordingly, the next generation of BIM has been called ‘Building Intelligence Modelling’, highlighting the transition towards more connected, collaborative systems, technologies and ways of working.
Our BIM work has already delivered exceptional value on a large number of projects of all shapes and sizes. We’re breaking new ground every day – and loving the results.
