Saunders continue to move forward by employing BIM processes, standards and collaborative practices throughout its offices.
We produce BIM (Building Information Model) information rich digital models, which can be shared with clients and consultants alike and be maintained for the life of a building from inception to recycling. This can be achieved through transparent collaboration via third party cloud based software. The models offer significant benefits, such as co-ordination of plans, sections and elevations, with clash detection, 3D visualisation, better project management, cost management, and solar path and energy analysis. By sharing our working model with the rest of the design team and consultants, BIM has given us the ability to model and organise projects with fixed processes, providing accurate co-ordinated information to the client, consultant team and contractors.
Saunders have successfully implemented BIM on a number of projects utilising multiple software platforms including Revit to convey the information required, both at planning and construction stages.
