Discover faster processes for collaboration and efficiencies driven by BIM

The tree frog uses ingenious ways to protect itself from drying heat and the midday sun

Architects are taking on roles such as the BIM co-ordinator or Information Manager and bringing together the many disciplines of the design process into a single virtual environment. Working more closely together across the project lifecycle is a requirement which now falls to all participants. Virtual environments are no longer just a ‘nice to have’; they are critical for architectural firms to stay relevant in how they do things, and deliver concepts into a digitised world.

From concept design through to construction and into the operation of a facility, there are significant financial benefits to all from using digital assets and virtual environments. Processes are faster, details are sharper, information is richer and, with the increasing influence of Building Information Modelling (BIM), each stage of the process is more efficient.

We work with many of the UK’s leading architects to identify opportunities for improvement, and implement essential new processes and systems.  We’re helping to change the way people collaborate with each other and how designers deliver valuable information in compliance with BIM requirements and processes.
