Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a way of designing, constructing and maintaining a building using one single and coherent computer model, instead of a fragmented set of tools and processes.
BIM is not only transforming the way we design, plan and build, but also the way a building can be maintained once it is finished. The benefits of BIM in the operational phase of a building’s lifecycle are rapidly becoming apparent to the industry, where owners are constantly on the look for new ways to reduce costs and improve facility management.

We use Revit software to produce highly accurate models for both new and current buildings, which can help you find information about their outlines and fixtures quickly. The main benefit of BIM is simply that it saves you money in the long run. With a clear and accurate picture of your estate, you have the advantage of being able to plan ahead and avoid unforeseen expenditure.
When we visit your site with our 3D laser scanner, we’ll collect data from as many areas as you want. We can also collect data of the fixtures within them, like furniture and electrical sockets and add these to the Revit model. Contractors, no matter what their specialty is, will be able to refer to your model during project work, and easily find the information they need.
