We recognise the significant advantages that 3D computer modelling and the BIM process brings to the delivery of the design and construction process and asset management. Since 2007 we have actively integrated 3D modelling and BIM into our design delivery process.
The BIM process encourages forward thinking and smart use of building data. We integrate the design with delivery using an open BIM approach. The use of external third-party extensions and internal customisation improves the interoperability of software used by BG&E, allowing for flexibility and optimisation in the design process and the sharing of design data to external project teams. We have actively redefined internal workflows to take advantage of BIM, not only to design smarter and more efficiently, but to also improve project collaboration and communications involving all disciplines to minimise error and maximise quality.
