New technology is transforming the way AEC projects are designed, engineered, built and managed — and it’s delivering increased productivity and greater ROI for organisations of all sizes. BIM is an intelligent 3D model-based process that equips AEC professionals with the insight and tools to plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure more efficiently.

  • Designers:

    coordinate multiple work streams; explore and evaluate the fullest range of design options; use information-rich visualizations to engage with non-technical stakeholders and owners

  • Engineers:

    facilitate continuous analysis of evolving designs; prioritise key criteria to optimise designs; use simulations to gain intelligent feedback on ‘real-world’ building performance

  • Contractors:

    benefit from precision off-site manufacturing; rehearse complex construction processes; reduce waste, eliminate errors and increase safety

  • Owner/Operators:

    enable faster, better-informed project and asset decisions through continuous sharing of unified data; increase coordination and save time and money

6 things to get you started on your BIM journey

BIM Level 2 can be summarised by six key points. Project Teams need to start at Point 1 and finish at Point 6:

Autodesk BIM Process
You must address all 6 key points to be BIM Level 2 compliant. The challenge many Project Teams face is that they start at Point 4 with Generating the Information and hope that a Collaboration or Project Management Solution can help them meet the UK Level 2 requirements.
