Plowman Craven’s BIM Consultancy is backed by an established knowledge of information management and BIM Level 2 requirements, meaning we are well placed to provide trusted strategic support for clients in the comprehensive delivery of BIM projects.
Do you feel like you’re behind the curve in BIM adoption?
Have you committed to deliver BIM but don’t know how to implement it?
Do you need support in information management or BIM Coordination?
If you can answer yes to any of the above questions, we can help.
The Government’s BIM Level 2 mandate deadline might have already passed, but there is clearly still an industry-wide difficulty in adopting BIM. This apprehension could be down to incomplete knowledge, bad experiences or simply a lack of understanding of what BIM entails.
Complete commitment and dedication is required to realise and harness the true benefits of BIM.
That’s where we come in. Plowman Craven supports the client, design and build teams - collaborating with them to help achieve Level 2 compliance. In real terms, that means supplying them with knowledge that empowers them to build their own BIM implementation strategies and successfully integrate them into current design and build processes.
Plowman Craven not only supported us in the writing of our Employers Requirements document but gave us a greater understanding and confidence in what BIM is and how we can see benefit from it on our projects and the management of our assets going forward.
We were pleased with their professionalism and solid understanding of BIM and would recommend their BIM consultancy services to others.Sarah Wallwork, Programme Manager - The Tavistock and Portman Foundation Trust
We provide support to clients in the on-boarding and familiarisation of BIM throughout the project lifecycle. We will collaborate with them to identify client BIM objectives and requirements, and will also write the Employers Information Requirements Document
Working alongside the client to increase their confidence in the implementation of BIM
Aligning to the recommended industry documents, we can build specific assessment templates for BIM Capability, IT and Resource. We can also then support the client by evaluating the completed supply chain assessment as well as outputting executive reports and a score matrix.
Plowman Craven can evaluate, establish and manage the common data environment. Once it’s set up and a versatile information structure is in place, we can validate information compliance and ensure that the task team information models meet the required integrity and security standards.
In collaboration with the client and design team, we can build the project information plan and asset information plan. This covers the proposed information structure and deliverables across the supply chain. Plowman Craven can also assist the project task teams in successfully exchanging and integrating information.
We can manage the federated models and undertake clash detection to enable task teams to resolve.
Beyond the normal project deliveries, Plowman Craven can also support the production of COBie data sheets and assist the client in the implementation of ‘BIM-enabled’ CAFM systems.
We have a high-calibre in-house team of model authors that are experts in computational BIM.
Our team can support clients in the building of dynamo and python scripts that enhance the efficiencies of designers and contractors building or using the models.
Let’s discuss your requirements and see how our expertise in BIM Consultancy can help on your next project.
