BIM (Building Information Modelling)
The revolutionary force of Building Information Modelling continues to reverberate around the construction industry. Tap into specialist insight and analysis on BIM from NBS.
The ninth NBS National BIM Report is now available. Read the latest on the state of BIM, representing the views of nearly 1,000 industry professionals.
The utilisation of 3D authoring tools enables us to be adaptive to project needs and typology. Such tools are able to hold classification data (such as Uniclass and IFC). They can communicate with database solutions (such as Codebook and NBS Chorus) to integrate with cloud-hosted common data environments (CDE) and other modelling tools, through the use of the IFC-neutral file format.
Bond Bryan deals with BIM in two aspects: Architecture and Digital. Our Architecture team is primarily focused on the creation, sharing and coordination of information models, whilst our Digital team is focused on providing specialist Information Management and Coordination Management services to our architectural teams, and also other clients, consultants and contractors.
Earlier this year, we were offered the opportunity to present at the Discover NBS events in Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne. The suggested theme of the presentation was our digital strategy. We used this as a chance to reflect on the technological advancements that the practice has undertaken in what we thought was our recent history, only to realise that digital technologies have been part of our processes for over 30 years.
Architects, designers and engineers’ fundamental skills rely on their creative and technical abilities, but technology is increasingly changing the way that they work.
The PAS 1192 series of standards and, subsequently, the ISO 19650 series of standards define the need to have a common data environment (CDE) for collecting, managing and disseminating information throughout BIM projects.
