Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a digital design process, focussed on collaborative working, which typically increases efficiency on site and delivers greater cost certainty. BIMs powerful tools also help us to produce high quality visualisations that bring our ideas vividly to life, enabling better buy-in from clients and end-users.
rhp has a strong portfolio of projects delivered using BIM design and collaboration tools, and we invest considerable time and resources into developing our BIM skills to ensure an efficient and productive workflow. This investment includes staff training, the development of information sharing protocols, the implementation of consistent project standards and the use of digital technologies to aid collaboration and refine the design process.
Recent projects undertaken by rhp in a BIM environment have enabled collaborative workflows in-house, and informed our approach to sharing data, knowledge and progress with others. We are currently leading the development of BIM collaboration for a large, multi-disciplinary project team on a £26 million student residential scheme for the University of Cambridge, to include the delivery of both the Project BIM Execution Plan and of data-rich building models for Facilities Management (BimFM) on completion.
