Here at NS Architects we believe BIM processes will improve collaboration, coordination and quality in the design, procurement and management of buildings and infrastructure. Through the use of BIM, we are targeting a more inclusive, integrated and complete design process and more intelligent use of digital information to add value, reduce risk and improve product and service quality for our clients.
Within the practise we have almost 20 years of valuable BIM expertise, we have established BIM protocols including standards based on the AEC (UK) BIM Standards for Revit and a portfolio of completed projects. Through our investment in BIM our designs come alive from early in the commission. We use technology as a tool to deliver accomplished architecture and help realise innovative design ideas from concept sketch to site. Our experience in the construction sector allows us to approach innovation in design with not just passion but with confidence and knowledge. Creating integrated designs that are sustainable and productive is what we do and what we strive for on all our projects.
Thanks to virtual modelling, we are also able to forecast how the building will function once occupied which can provide accurate costings for operation and lifecycle maintenance costs. We have been using BIM successfully as a practice since our inception in 2012 and we are very competent in our abilities to analyse and interpret the data for the benefit of our clients. A key benefit to using BIM is its ability to speed up the process, meaning a building will be safe and ready to use much quicker than would be expected.
