About BIM

BIM information: research, design and information of buildings in one structure


BIM is the basis of quality

All information is linked in one medium: BIM. This allows us to work more efficiently, to learn from past mistakes, and to make it easier for passers-by between disciplines to understand each other. The resulting time savings are used to improve the quality of the design.

The output of BIM is integrally developed, coordinated and controlled. It is therefore more reliable. The executing parties in particular benefit from this, making the realisation run more smoothly. As a result, the end result will be more in line with the design.

Communicating with BIM: what you see is what you get

Until recently, our clients had to be able to read technical drawings and understand pencil sketches. Now that's no longer necessary, from the very beginning of the design we can include everyone in our 3D model by means of virtual reality, 360 panoramas and realistic impressions. This allows us to better communicate our design and to better meet our expectations.

BIM makes our buildings innovative

Our quality system is designed to monitor our own work and continuously improve our BIM models.

A part of our models is the link with our (circular) material state and the introduction of the model in Madaster. With this we try to monitor and adjust the degree of circular construction during the design phase.

We are investigating the possibilities of linking energy measures, specifications and budgets to our BIM models. The simple visualisation and calculation of different scenarios provides better insight into the innovation opportunities.

BIM generates future value

BIM collects information in a universal way that will remain usable in the future. As a result, future adjustments to the real estate are easy to carry out; after all, the necessary information is available centrally. This building information makes the property more widely applicable. This results in a higher return on the property.

During operation, the BIM model can be linked to a management program, so that regular maintenance can be carried out automatically. In addition, the information required for outsourcing work is available centrally and up-to-date.

Patrick McLeamy calls this 'bim, bam, tree'. Bim' stands for modelling in the design phase, 'bam' for assembly during construction and 'boom' for the booming possibilities in exploitation and use.

"The most important thing in communication is to hear what is not said."
