BIM, or Building Information Modelling, is a process that enables designers to create buildings in 3D. _space group have been advocates of this technology for almost a decade, and we have pioneered its use in the UK, creating an approach known as BIG BIM. There are numerous benefits to a BIM-led design, build and operation process, including:
>> Testing the building virtually, before a brick is laid on site.
>> Troubleshooting and correcting errors before a building leaves the virtual drawing board.
>> Greatly increased levels of communication among parties on the design team, saving time, clashes and money.
>> An easy and cost effective way to foresee and plan maintenance, thanks to making use of the virtual model as an ‘as built’ building place after construction.
