The University is home to 29,000 students and has set out a strategy to improve the condition of its estate, improving the utilisation of space and reducing carbon emissions.

BIM Academy was commissioned to examine how to improve the implementation of BIM within the University’s asset management programme, and to recommend a BIM -nabled vision and BIM implementation roadmap.

The project also examined the procurement of a new Computer-aided facility management (CAFM) system and advised on how this could be integrated with BIM processes and technologies.

We developed a corporate BIM vision aligned to the University’s business values and business plan. This vision formed part of an operational BIM strategy including the structure of revised management processes to be developed during the implementation phase. We also established a roadmap and outline budget detailing how the University should implement our recommendations

A structured training plan was devised to support the realisation of the roadmap and upskill the existing team.

The overriding recommendations for delivering BIM has enabled the University to drive efficiencies in new and existing estate buildings and achieve its goal of maximising space and reducing carbon emissions – enhancing user experiences.
