Building Information Modelling is a collaborative way of working which covers geometry, spatial relationships, light analysis, geographic information and the properties of the building components. It can be used to illustrate the lifecycle of an entire building.
The large amount of data integrated into a BIM model allows for substantial cost savings from design through to construction, saves time and waste on site and negates the need for extra coordination checks. The information generated from the model will generally lead to fewer errors on site as it is a far more accurate and coordinated design solution.
BIM provides a format in which all members of a construction team can work together; meaning all involved can work on the same model to add their services from the early design stages, right through to completion. Any changes made are automatically coordinated across the project and any information generated from the model is of a higher quality than previous approaches.
TACE have been implementing BIM since 2010 and our clients have been reaping the benefits ever since. Regulations being implemented from 2016 onwards demand that all government procured buildings will have to be BIM compliant, something TACE fully supports.
