BIM (Building Information Modelling)

Architects are continually wanting to push the envelope with their designs as engineering knowledge and capability increases. The challenge facing facade engineering is to continue to innovate and improve to come up with bespoke design solutions to meet these requirements, by utilising new technologies such as Building Information Modelling (BIM).

Using BIM we can construct a virtual building during the design phase of a project, which allows us to carry out clash detection and run simulations in advance of any manufacture or site construction commencing. Here at McMullen’s we are using this technology allowing us to test components and elements for fit and function before manufacture commences.

The use of BIM to standardise processes and 3D modelling is expected to be mandatory for all government projects over the next five years. McMullen have already completed five projects to BIM Level 2, putting us well on track to meet the government’s BIM strategy to complete all projects to BIM Level 2 by 2015.
