Building Information Modeling
BIM design tools allow the extraction of different views and angles from a 3D building model, for drawing production and other uses
Improving the building process
Our BIM feature provides a common platform for all users and parties that are involved with one project, which they can use to properly communicate, share drawings and work collaboratively on said project, from start to finish.
Tools and Features
BuilderStorm offers all of the tools and features you need to demonstrate your BIM level 2 compliance. We can provide on-line drawing hosting with robust revision control and full audit trails.
Sharing BIM models
Manage all of your BIM (and non-BIM) projects, which ensures that your sub-contractors and clients know that you can provide a robust system for ensuring that the project is delivered on time and on budget.
What is BIM?
BIM, or Building Information Modelling, is all about providing a common platform for all parties that are involved with one project, which they can use to communicate, share drawings and work collaboratively on the project from start to finish.
This data is used to improve your building processes by reducing errors, spotting issues before they occur and make it easier for external companies to design and resolve different elements of the building.
The UK government laid out plans in 2011 for all of their construction projects over £5million to be BIM compliant by 2016. This proposal was initially lead by the UK government’s BIM Task Group, who worked with the UK Contractors Group to spearhead this campaign. With the UKCG keen to adopt the new guidelines, it is likely that BIM will spread to non-government contracts and become the industry standard.
BuilderStorm & BIM
We offer all the tools and features you need to demonstrate you are BIM level 2 compliant. We can provide on-line drawing hosting with robust revision control and full audit trails. Our RFI feature makes sure that everyone is on the same page when looking at your design queries, and our Project photos feature keeps track of the project as it changes over time. The whole project and all of its data can be exported at the end for the hand-over to the client.
Our software is already being used by clients under the BIM directive. Click here to read a blog post by our CEO, where I H B are using BuilderStorm to build a new £18m project in Warrington.
