For projects of any size or complexity, we use Building Information Modelling (BIM) software to bring together all aspects of the architectural information in one location, from concept to construction. This includes iterative early stage designs, developed building components, documentation and schedules.

We enjoy the potential of using the digital BIM models for client engagements, to communicate our designs more effectively and to create compelling visualisations.

As the design progresses, digital models from engineers and other design disciplines are integrated into our own model and we’re experienced at using clash detection software to collaborate with the design team more effectively and identify coordination issues earlier.

A tailored approach

Some clients require a complete and accurate digital model to enable them to manage and alter the built facility throughout its life, whilst others have only very limited needs for the information beyond the construction of the building. We recognise the importance of providing modelling information that’s appropriate for the project in hand and tailoring our approach to match the client’s needs.


To ensure office policies are kept up to date and correct methods and procedures are in place, the practice runs a BIM Leads group made up from a cross section of staff who meet regularly to discuss latest developments in BIM, and to organise regular training workshops for our staff with external software consultants.
