Virtual Project Workshop
Staff at J Humphrey & Partners recently attended a three day BIM virtual project workshop.
The workshop developed and delivered by BIM Academy in conjunction with Ryder Architects and Northumbria University provided an immersive real-time exercise for the team. It allowed the team to develop their knowledge of BIM software and the management processes in a collaborative virtual project environment.
The workshop covering all major aspects of the BIM process from the Execution Plan through to 4D Construction Simulation and 5D Quantity Take Offs, was another significant step in further expanding J Humphrey & Partners BIM capability.
BIM is a 3D modelling system that involves data sharing between all the team members on a project to create a digital model that can be used from a project’s early design stages through to completion and monitoring of subsequent performance.
- The Building Information Modelling (BIM) Task Group are supporting and helping deliver the objectives of the Government Construction Strategy and the requirement to strengthen the public sector’s capability in BIM implementation with the aim that all central government departments will be adopting, as a minimum, collaborative Level 2 BIM by 2016.
- In a maturing market, we want to increase our core abilities to match that of the demands of our Clients.
- Project complexity in many instances warrants the application of a collaborative approach, integrating Structural and Architectural data into our MEP services design and co-ordination tasks.
We currently produce 3D models of buildings for the purposes of thermal simulation and building regulations compliance. We have the ability to use 3D geometry prepared by Architects and/or Structural Engineers, which is imported to our software product.
