LGHM recognised that offsite manufacturing techniques combined with the application of digital construction methods, could be used to streamline the design and build process and offer a solution to the lack of affordable housing stock across the nation by being able to build at a faster rate.
LGHM commissioned BIM Academy to undertake an objective review of its current processes and establish a strategy and implementation plan to achieve an integrated digital approach to apply to future construction projects.
Working closely with the LGHM team at their manufacturing facility in Yorkshire, BIM Academy studied the application of LGHM’s existing software platforms and workflows, to identify where improvements could be made to optimise the design, procurement, manufacture and assembly process.
BIM Academy produced a BIM strategy and implementation plan – supported by a BIM protocol – to support the digitisation of the design to manufacturing process as part of an integrated holistic approach across the whole of the business.
LGHM have now increased production with the aim of creating 3,500 new homes per year.
