Initially we struggled to understand the true value of a Building Information Model. We worked closely with Stride Treglown and Willmott Dixon to develop our understanding and act on the benefits.

Working directly with Stride Treglown allowed us to establish early engagement with our CAFM supplier, ensuring our vision for the future use of the information outputs from the model would be of long term value, with a more agile management of our assets.

Perhaps most importantly is that the use of BIM provides the opportunity for future contractors to federate their work and offer more efficient planned delivery of change activity as the site evolves.
