How we're using BIM at UWE

The video highlights some key aspects of Building Information Modelling that ISG are utilising on the new build development at The University of the West of England’s new five-storey Faculty of Business and Law building.

ISG are acting as information manager / co-ordinator on this project, The BIM is being utilised to undertake 4D analysis of key areas of the build and site logistic planning, 5D is also being trialled to validate tender returns against the model. ISG also undertakes thorough version control analysis issuing monthly reports on quantity of model changes and information changes. Data validation of information within the BIM is also being analysed to ensure compliance with Uniclass 2015. COBie is also a handover deliverable with soft landings being operated upon completion.
