As we saw in the last post we can generate both 2D and 3D views of the models. The 3D model approach offers more than a ‘traditional’ approach as the model can be used to also generate visualisations (some prefer to call these Computer Generated Images (CGI for short) or Renders). Visualisations can be created from a model from any angle with geometry switched on or off as required. Continue reading

In the previous blog post we showed images of the 3D model we have created of the Villa Savoye from the Lego Architecture series. A 3D model is easy for all parties to understand what the proposed model will look like once ‘built’. However the industry still requires designers to produce ‘traditional’ information including plans, sections and elevations on drawing sheets. Continue reading

Trying to explain Building Information Modelling (BIM) to a layperson can often be quite difficult without descending into loads of technical detail and a whole host of acronyms. Many of our clients are only involved once in the design and construction process. Some clients of course have much more exposure to multiple projects and ultimately these clients will drive BIM forward as they see the issues that cause them issues over and over again. Repeating the process allows them to understand why a different approach will produce better outcomes for their assets but for the one time only clients they only get one shot. Of course with all projects we want the best outcomes whether a client builds once or multiple times. So for us it is important clients understand the benefits that a BIM approach can bring.

Over the past 12 months we have seen a number of our client’s set out that they wish the design team to deliver “BIM Level 2”. Whilst this is great to see an increased interest in the need for BIM, many clients are missing a crucial aspect of a “BIM Level 2” project. This is the need to appoint someone to carry out Information Management for the project. Continue reading
