BuilderStorm & BIM Level 2 Compliance
BuilderStorm is proud to offer all the tools you need to demonstrate BIM level 2 compliance – You can view and share common BIM models with your site team and external partners through our platform. BuilderStorm have taken the unprecedented step of offering this feature for a flat fee, meaning you don’t need to purchase extra licences or worry about expensive new hardware. Your team need any device with a browser to be able to view the models; this means they can even view it on a mobile phone in the field without having to download any software or install any apps.
Of course, sharing BIM models is just one facet of the BIM mentality, digital documents, cloud-based software, RFIs and Snags all form part of the correct approach to the BIM strategy. Thankfully, BuilderStorm offers the complete package to manage all your BIM (and non-BIM) projects, ensuring that your sub-contractors and clients know that you provide a robust system for ensuring that the project is delivered on time and on budget.

What is BIM?
Building Information Modelling – or BIM – is all about providing a common platform known as a Common Data Environment (CDE) that all parties involved with a project can use to work collaboratively from start to finish.
BIM data improves the build process by reducing errors, highlighting issues before they occur and making it easier for different companies to design and resolve different elements of the build.
In 2011, the UK government laid out plans for all of their construction projects over £5million to be BIM compliant by 2016. This proposal was initially led by the UK government’s BIM Task Group which worked with the UK Contractors Group (UKCG) to spearhead the campaign. With the UKCG keen to adopt the new guidelines, it is likely that BIM will soon impact non-government contracts as well and become the industry standard in an effort to improve the industry, increase margins and enable projects to be delivered on time.
