Building Information Modelling

Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Our BIM services are more than just software. For A & Z, BIM is a methodology. The process starts with the initial client engagement and evolves to the delivery of the project through its different stages / project life cycle, taking it from design through to construction and finally to the operation stage.


BIM Capabilities

Design Review & Optimisation

The process where stakeholders view a 3D model and provide their feedback to validate multiple design aspects.

Engineering Design & Analysis

The process in which intelligent modelling software uses the BIM model to determine the most effective engineering method based on the design specifications.

Service Coordination

A process where Clash Detection software is used during the coordination process to determine field conflicts by comparing 3D models of all building services.

Issue Reporting & Tracking

A process where Field Management software is used during the construction, commissioning, and handover stages to manage, track, and report on quality of execution.

BOQ & Cost Estimation

A process where BIM may be used to assist in the generation of quantity take-offs and cost estimates throughout the lifecycle of a project.

Construction Sequencing

A process where a 4D model is utilised to effectively show the construction sequence and space requirements on a building site. 4D modelling is a powerful visualisation and communication tool allowing us to better understand the project milestones.

BIM Benefits

Design Authoring & Review
  • Transparency of design for all stakeholders.
  • Better quality control of design, cost and scheduling/programme.
  • True collaboration between project stakeholders and BIM users.
  • Improved quality control and assurance.
  • Elimination of costly and timely traditional construction mock-ups.
  • Ease of communication of the design to the owner, construction team and end users.
  • Greatly increasing/improving coordination and communication between different parties – more likely to generate better decisions for design.
Engineering Analysis

(Mechanical | Lighting | Energy)

  • Automating analysis and saving time and cost.
  • Improving specialised expertise and services offered.
  • Improving the quality and reducing the cycle time of the design analyses.
  • Achieving optimum energy-efficient design solutions by applying various rigorous analyses.
3D Coordination
  • Coordinating building projects through federated service models.
  • Reducing field conflicts causing significant reduction in RFI’s when compared to other methods.
  • Increasing productivity in design authoring and on site.
  • Generating accurate as built drawings for verification and deviance mitigation.
Record Modeling
  • Aiding in future modelling and 3D design coordination for renovation.
  • Aiding in the permitting process (e.g. continuous change vs specified code).
  • Ability to embed future data, based on renovation or equipment replacement.
  • Providing owner with accurate model of building, equipment, and spaces within building to create possible synergies with other BIM Uses.
