BIM

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is integral for each project designed and delivered by Wilde Architects.

The power of BIM allows projects to be developed, visualised and analysed in 3D prior to construction.
3D modelling informs the design process and assists the design team with coordination, pro-actively overcoming technical design issues before the project reaches site.
Wilde Architects uses Autodesk Revit in collaboration with clients and consultants.

‘The impact of BIM on projects is measurable, with project timescales reduced by as much as 15 percent.’ Saxon, Richard G., Growth Through BIM, Construction Industry Council, 2013

 

Autodesk Guide to BIM

What is BIM?

With BIM, design teams develop an intelligent 3D model of their project that lets them gain a deeper understanding of how a building will perform while they work. Architects and engineers who use BIM get more done in less time thanks to connected, interoperable workflows and more efficient analysis, collaboration, and visualisation. In contrast, CAD-based 2D designs lack the intelligence that enables the efficiency and quality gains seen in the BIM process.

When BIM touches the whole project — and everyone on the extended team — you save time, increase quality, and reduce risk even more than with limited approaches.

BIM adoption in the UK

BIM adoption is being driven by the government BIM Level 2 mandate which was introduced for all publically funded projects over £5 million procured in England and Wales since April 2016.
