Over the past 5 years building design in a 3D environment and the use of intelligent models has been on a rapid increase. Digital technology has transformed the way that buildings are designed, with Building Information Modelling (BIM) becoming one of the most effective ways to plan and design construction projects.
The capabilities and benefits of this technology are such that the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) is now compulsory on all public sector construction projects.
BIM involves much more than simply using technology to design a building. It allows everyone involved in its construction and management to contribute information to its digital model. Each element introduced to the model carries specific information that can relate not only to physical dimensions, but also to other factors such as performance, energy use, and lifespan.
By creating an accurate BIM model, the building’s facilities and features – and the ways in which they interact – can be analysed in advance. Costly errors are reduced, as the entire process becomes more collaborative and efficient.
As experts in the design and manufacture of lighting solutions, we have developed our own BIM capabilities. This means that Whitecroft products can be easily integrated into your BIM models by our fully trained in-house BIM engineers.
Using BIM, we can be sure that every aspect of the lighting solution performs as it should prior to installation. It saves time, reduces costs and makes for more efficient building design.
