The UK Government require publicly procured projects from April 4th 2016 to achieve "BIM Level 2" and from October 3rd 2016 for data to be verified. For many meeting these targets are a challenging prospect, for others a complete unknown quantity.

For us the term BIM (which stands for Building Information Modelling) has become synonymous with technology and also gives the impression it is only about buildings and models. For us though BIM offers much more than this and is all about the INFORMATION for all types of built assets. So we prefer to think of BIM as an acronym that stands for "Better Information Management". The definiton and management of the information is the key part and aims to provide a clearer more robust and standardised process that benefits all parties involved in design, construction and maintenance of a built asset.

The fundamental aim though of the UK Government's approach is about changing the AECO (Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operations) sector from an analogue approach to a fully digital approach. At Bond Bryan Digital we feel we can share the expertise and knowledge that we have built up over a number of years with others and assist them on their journeys to a digitally integrated future.

We can offer Information Management, a core requirement of a “BIM Level 2” approach, to our clients. This service can be to clients, before appointing a team, to help define Asset Information Requirements (AIR) and Employer’s Information Requirements (EIR) but also during a project to provide the management of documentation and processes to support design and construction teams. Additionally we can support projects by offering Coordination Management and a number of other specialist digital services.

Our approach is also fully built around open national and international standards that will ensure information is not just suitable for the design and construction phases but for the whole lifecycle of an asset.

BIM Blog

Sharing our real life experiences with the wider industry

As well as providing consultancy for digital workflows we share our real life experiences on our award winning blog *. To some 'giving away' knowledge is somewhat alien but for us it provides value both ways. The blog has allowed us to connect with others and increase our knowledge that can then benefit all the projects and clients we work with.

Our blog pieces cover a wide variety of topics including Information Management, Coordination Management, Standards, and OPEN BIM workflows. Many of the blog pieces are live maintained resources, such as our piece on Autodesk Revit model exchange with Graphisoft ARCHICAD using IFC.

We also share a number of free resources including our BIM Acronyms, BIM Dictionary and BIM File Formats. Additionally there is an extensive resource of current UK standards as well as information related to open workflows including material covering COBie, IFC and BCF.
