ULCCO Special projects are working in accordance with the relevant BIM level 2 suite of documents – PAS 1192 & ISO 19650 and are working towards BSi Kitemark accreditation for working in a BIM Level 2 environment. Using our in-house BIM suite of documentation, we can offer our client a bespoke Common Data Environment (CDE) that suits their exact needs at the University of Liverpool.
As a business, we utilise Revit and Navisworks to allow exchange of information between different 3-D models within the CDE; we have also invested in other digital hardware and software, which enables us to work more effectively with our in house client, design teams and supply chain members.
For a small business, we have made a significant investment in BIM and digital technology and training, recently adopting BIM on our latest contracts of the New School of Law & Social Justice and the New Centre for Arts and Humanities, both located on South Campus.
Our Design Manager, Coordinator and operational teams have participated in BIM training and can offer project specific BIM Execution Plans (BEPs) to suit the requirements of the clients Exchange Information Requirements (EIRs).
We have found that the benefits for working in BIM include:
- Effective collaboration between our client, design teams, supply chain and ourselves
- Options for our construction staff and our client to view latest models and design information on the CDE
- Clash detection, saving cost and programme time
- Use of Construction Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie) data format for consistent classification of assets during aftercare and Facilities Management
