Late April saw the BIM Show Live descend on the Park Plaza, Westminster. Among the delegates was Associated Architects Director James Hall, who was there to present AAâ€™s use of the BIM.
Associated Architects were one of only a few speakers to give a live demonstrate their work to the audience the BIM Show Live event in London. James Hall demonstrated how BIM technology can help organisations manage their buildings and access useful maintenance data. The presentation generated a great deal of interest from client side attendees.
With others, Associated Architects are about to launch a BIM 360 Field database for Birmingham City Universityâ€™s new “Parkside building”:http://www.www.associated-architects.co.uk/projects/education/universities/biad/. In one of the UKâ€™s earliest implementations of the software, the project team are able to deliver the client mobile access to the 3D building model with all associated installation photographs, O&M documentation, product details and just about any piece of information associated with the building as well.
Associated Architects are working to make BIM a core part of all design projects, making sure that clients are receiving the most efficient, responsible and cost effective service.
James Hall, Director for Associated Architects said, _â€˜BIM is the biggest driver of change within construction industry, itâ€™s allowing disparate processes to be brought together, in turn saving time, cutting waste and reducing costs. AA are proud to be leading the pack in terms of developing client BIM tools, our presentation at the national BIM Show Live 2013 was a great opportunity to show the rest of the industry how much time weâ€™re putting into achieving client benefits from BIM use.â€™_
