BIM Adoption Case Studies

Some insightful UK BIM adoption case studies now on thenbs.com...
Studio Klaschka
Robert Klaschka, Principal Director, Studio Klaschka
"So what are we doing as a practice? Where is the business of BIM taking us?"

Laing O'Rourke
Dick Barker, Director, Laing O'Rourke, Head of Model Based Measurement and Costing.
"Due to the speed of response created by auto-measurement we are able to influence and inform the design as it develops with the knowledge of quantum and cost, not just measure and cost the design, which is often too late."

_Space Group
James Austin, BIM Leader, _space Group
"For the two year duration of Washington, two people ran the job, with two more joining during the early stages for just four weeks in a busy period. Compared with a constant four on the CAD project, rising to six or seven, this represented a significant increase in efficiency."

Ryder Architecture
Peter Barker, Architectural Director, Ryder Architecture
"We link our specification clauses to objects within the Revit model using a simple cross referencing method. This doesn't directly import data from the spec into the model, nevertheless it has created efficiency savings in change management during the design process."

David Light, BIM Manager, HOK London
"When discussing the topic of Building Information Modelling (BIM), people often ask me, 'So this BIM thing you describe, is it a shrink wrapped software solution?' Let me start by saying 'you can’t buy a box of BIM!'"
