We have moved to Stockport.

 

WP_20160203_13_20_17_Pro

2016 has started with a big change in that we have moved from the High Peak to Stockport. Our new offices are located right in the town centre just a short walk from the railway station.

We share our office with Green Project Management,  a firm of construction project managers, run by Jonathan Greenhalgh. Our paths had crossed at a number of local networking events where we would often discuss the growth of our businesses.

For us, this move provides the dual benefits of being in a location with much better connections, working alongside a company whose services complement ours.

So, if you do find yourself in and around the Stockport area, do give us a call and we will put the kettle on.

BIM in Small Practices

P1000220

We recently received our copy of BIM in Small Practices a new book that busts the Myth that BIM is only for large projects.

We contributed a case study to the book which demonstrates how we use Revit  to produce project information at every project stage.

In the foreword, David Philip who is head of the UK BIM Task Group states.

” We are witnessing some early adopters of BIM punching well above their weight and leveling the playing field against their bigger competitors, offering added value, less risk and better outcomes…….. From better spatial coordination, rapid optioneering to self generation of data sheets the list of opportunities for the small practice is a large one.”

The book can be purchased from RIBA publishing here.

Jeremy Poulter contributes to National BIM Report 2014

BIMReport2014Jeremy Poulter has contributed his experiences of using BIM in a small practice to the National BIM Report 2014 compiled by the NBS.  Jeremy’s thoughts are to be found on page 24.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) represents a new approach to the production and coordination of information in the design, construction and operation of buildings. At it’s core is a 3D model from which both drawing information and schedules can be generated. BIM also offers greater potential for coordination between design team members, the contractor and at the end of the construction process provides an information rich model that can be used as part of the facilities management of the building.

The report finds that whilst larger practices are seeing the benefits of implementing BIM, smaller practices have been reluctant to take the plunge. However the report highlights that there are great benefits to the small practice in implementing BIM, most notably in the ability to deliver more and better quality information within a shorter period of time.

This report comes ahead of the publication of BIM in the Small Practice  ( RIBA publishing) in which Jeremy Poulter has contributed a case study that charts how BIM was used in the design and construction of St Peter’s Avenue.
