We examine the value and relevance of BIM processes to your organisation and provide honest and impartial advice on how to adopt digital tools and processes within your business, including the cultural challenges in terms of working practice which may need to be addressed. This will include assessing the competency of your organisation. How you and your supply chain currently operate will all affect the approach you need to adopt.
Through face to face engagement and careful analysis we will be able to prepare an organisational BIM strategy, with an implementation roadmap which will include training and mentoring plans for your workforce. Recognising the various standards and protocols and making this work for you are essential to allow the use of BIM to enhance the performance of your business.
Business case development We will help develop a plan which works for you and will show some early benefits that you can expect to realise.
Organisational and staff development programmes Some reconfiguring of your working practices will be needed to reflect the benefits realisation proposals within your business plan. Probably the biggest challenge we all face is defining the right training programme for individuals. We have developed a range of training modules which reflect different levels of need and competence. They enable staff to learn in a safe environment rather than take chances on a live project. We can also offer less formal coaching programmes.
BIM support and resource planning We can provide support to your organisation and team at all levels which will allow you to better plan and utilise your resources.
Change management Implementing BIM will inevitably involve changes for your workforce. Our experience to date will allow you to quickly and effectively build a change programme into your overall plans.
Company protocols For the maximum benefit to be realised from BIM it is essential to align company protocols and procedure to the BIM process Getting this right at the earliest stage will reap significant gains as the roll out of BIM runs through the organisation.
Risk analysis Running a full risk analysis through all stage of the process will provide useful data and information which is key to successful delivery. We use risk analysis as a key in project control.
Collaborative workshops By definition BIM is a collaborative process. We can facilitate workshops geared towards the level of collaboration needed to implement BIM.
Software training strategy A fundamental requirement in many cases, once the earlier assessments have been completed. We will advise on and can give the appropriate level of training to an organisation and client team.
Technology assessment and research As part of building the business case we will help assess your current technology capability and needs. Researching the market for the best solution balancing risk with opportunity will allow us to provide the best current solutions.
Best practice We work across the industry and so have access to the best practice currently available. We have no allegiance to a software provider and therefore can give independent advice. Our relationship with the leading industry forums, task groups and practitioners means we are always aware of current best practice.
Quality control We can develop a quality control module which will enable the balance of quality and cost to be transparent and maintained.
Performance measurement Keeping up to date with the overall performance of the workforce and the facility needs to be measured from the outset. We can provide advice on how best this can be achieved using a straightforward approach.
