About You

Today, as they look to increase the comparative wealth of their citizens, many major manufacturing countries are developing their industrial bases to include the production of more high-value goods. The best national strategies will include investment in research and development, in skills and in better production facilities.

Therefore developed countries, like the United Kingdom, must continue to create world-class working environments and outstanding manufacturing facilities in order to compete in an increasingly competitive global economy.

The United Kingdom has a reputation for innovation and creativity as well as a rich history in engineering and related research disciplines. In the UK exciting opportunities exist in such sectors as automotive/transport; aerospace; nuclear energy, renewable energy and medical technologies. As the global economy grows, alongside concerns around environmental protection and carbon issues, demand for innovative and efficient solutions within these major sectors is likely to be considerable.

Architects have an important role to play. The challenge is to demonstrate our value by creating efficient solutions, sufficiently bespoke to meet the particular needs of unique production processes but capable of change over time; spaces that also make great places for people to work, invariably placing research and development alongside production.

Whatever your requirements Bond Bryan’s people understand these issues and our Directors ensure that all our considerable experience is applied to every project. We aim to work with you to produce solutions that are thoughtful, innovative and deliverable.

Modelling the
21st Century Workplace

Building Information Modelling (BIM) allows us as designers to create whole projects in a virtual 3D environment; traditional outputs, floor plans, sections and elevations can then be automatically generated from the model. Therefore as the design develops from the conceptual to the detailed, all these outputs remain in sync at all times. Bond Bryan are leading the way with research and implementation of digital workflows.

We have produced 3D models since 1994, creating superb visualisations, improving communication and understanding amongst all project participants. These technologies can now be accessed simultaneously so that our colleagues can model together improving the pace of production. Increased compatibility between software is also allowing all project team members to incorporate their designs into a single combined model, promoting collaborative working, checking for compatibility and eliminating inconsistencies.

Now Consultants and Contractors are looking beyond traditional outputs and working directly with “data-rich” models. Contractors are importing our models into specialist software to create virtual building sites on which construction is rehearsed prior to attempting the real thing. Furthermore each element within the model can be assigned a variety of detailed information resulting in automated scheduling and increased cost certainty.

Clients can also benefit with access to the information during the design process allowing decisions to be made that will ultimately reduce running costs for the whole life of a building. The information can also be incorporated into Facilities Management software creating a smoother handover at the end of the design and construction phases.

We are also passionate advocates of open solutions and speak regularly on the subject of interoperability and BIM. In particular we are strong supporters of the OPEN BIM campaign and members of buildingSMART UK&I.

Our research has allowed us to update all our systems, templates and standards to align with the latest industry thinking. We are prepared and able to assist Clients and Contractors to both deliver BIM and help the whole team work together collaboratively. We have a central team, Bond Bryan Digital, who support all of our studios with the implementation of BIM and also offer services to the wider industry.
