Why

Investing in a BIM strategy is not something that appears overnight. It is likely your customers have been requesting files in certain formats or perhaps BIM is essential on a formal office tender. It is important to do your own research, understand your business requirements, and identify your customers’ expectations. This is an investment you should only need to do once, make sure it is sustainable for years to come.

Who

You should not be too precious about who can view and use your files. The more accessible your files are, the healthier outcome of investment you will receive. Before proceeding with the files, you need to have a good idea of who will be using them. Do you export products outside of the UK? Files can be translated and exported into a standardised IFC file to accommodate worldwide use and avoid any language barriers.

What

The Level Of Detail (LOD) of your files may differ between products; furniture manufacturers will most likely require a high LOD, so the 3D models are an acute representation of the product, where as a low LOD can be used on products that are indicating the space something will take up, such as laboratory equipment. There is no defined definition of BIM, it is up to your business to adapt it to your own individual needs.

How

The information provided in your specification brochures is enough to complete the model, however, it is helpful to have a collection of images and a previous CAD file as a visual reference. The data will be sourced for you and a document sent for your approval. The structure of the file is very important, Revit Families are parametric which means if you have 10 options in one range, we could combine them into one family. As experienced space planners, we understand what makes a great working model.
