Building Information Modelling (BIM) has redefined project delivery in the design and engineering industry, changing everything from the tools we use, the skills required, and the way we work with clients.
At KJ Tait Engineers, we strive to deliver our services to the highest possible standard and recognise we must evolve and improve our organisation when the opportunity arises. BIM and the UK Government’s introduction of their 2016 BIM Level 2 Mandate has allowed us to unlock new and more efficient ways of working through all stages of a project.
BIM is a suite of co-ordinated technological and procedural processes which are underpinned by the use of intelligent, data rich 3D models. These processes streamline the entire design and a successful BIM led project will promote the core values of collaboration and information management. It will provide a predictable design route which will allow the building to be simulated and assessed before it is built, in turn presenting opportunities for improved co-ordination, visualisation and efficiency of the project.
Our already existing expertise in 3D building design and collaborative systems meant we were ideally placed to implement a smooth and successful transition to the new BIM design environment. We currently have BIM Level 2 capable teams and BRE Accredited BIM Level 2 designers throughout the organisation and, to date, have been a key player in the successful delivery of several BIM projects with a proven track record of delivering BIM compliant projects across multiple sectors.
Alongside the development of our existing skills, there has been significant investment in Hardware, Software and Training, ensuring our staff are armed with the appropriate tools and skills to facilitate excellence when designing within a BIM environment. To complement these investments we have established organisational policies, systems and procedures that ensure our BIM designs are compliant with all relevant standards.
