Building Information Modelling and Visualisation

Building excellence through technology

BIM Support Services

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an essential part of the building process. It creates a streamlined system of collaboration, to ensure all project teams work to the same standards. The project cost savings are massive and immediate. In 2014 construction output in the UK was £103bn and has been growing ever since.

BIM brings together information of every component of a building into a single 3D environment, compliant with BIM level 2 and expand into 4D with integrated scheduling and cost analysis. Using a variety of CAD packages, large companies and governments have eagerly embraced the technology as a means of delivering projects more cost efficiently and productive than ever before and are now starting to insist on having BIM Models with their projects. The UK government are driving changes through for all their departments to procure assets using BIM Level 2 by early 2017 – it is now expected for any large project.

BIM, the global stats

In North America alone 76% of contractors report a positive ROI with using BIM. 52% of contractors have heavy (31-60% of projects) or very heavy (>60% of projects) BIM implementation levels. According to McGraw Hill, by 2017, 50% of all AEC RFPs will require BIM.

ARC’s BIM services can help

Our BIM team can help support you in many ways from initial proposition through to final rendering and ongoing alterations to design and concepts as the project evolves. This support will give you more opportunities to win business by meeting the ongoing project demands and requirements.

We have a fully dedicated team of modellers, with work groups broken out by trade (architectural, structural, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, etc.). Our PMs are PMI certified, most are architects or engineers by trade.

We can start working quickly with little or no lead time.

We do our best to provide a fixed fee whenever possible so you can budget accordingly.

There’s no reason to change your workflow. We adapt to your processes quickly and can work using your existing standards. Or, if you don’t have them, we can help you build your own standards for future use.
