The Main Contractor community are early adopters of BIM and Digital Construction and have quickly realised the benefits that it brings to the construction process. BIM provides Main Contractors with visual communication which helps to assist all stakeholders in a project.
It is essential for Main Contractors to continue to evolve and develop as the industry grows. The continuous development of companies, teams and individuals will ensure these efficiencies continue to develop as the industry does.
Appointing an Information Manager is an essential requirement of a BIM Level 2 project. This role is not only highly-skilled, but also involves challenges such as federating the asset information model, supporting the consultants and supply chains with asset information capture and validation, and ensuring data outputs are compliant with the client’s requirements at each stage.
BIM is all about turning data into information, which in turn provides knowledge. If the data is missing, in the incorrect format, not delivered on time or just completely incorrect then the information becomes non-existent or misleading at best, the whole point of BIM is then missed, and the entire process can become a significant waste of time and money.

Majenta’s COBie training course was designed and developed by industry specialists to support contractors with a practical understanding of BIM compliant COBie information and asset data delivery.
The course provides attendees with an understanding of why COBie was created, how it’s structured and how it is applied over the course of a project. It shows how a designer will author the information and asset data of a COBie deliverable and focuses on how to review and check this information for accuracy. It will ensure attendees are equipped to meet your contract requirements.
Private Cloud for Content Hosting
Underpinning the whole concept of BIM and digital construction is the importance of standardisation and achieving a consistent approach to project delivery. This concept also applies to contractors with multiple teams and office locations who need to standardise around the use of approved and high-quality BIM content. Majenta understands that controlling robust 3D geometry and structured asset information is key to achieving this goal and a private cloud to host your approved BIM content helps to drive uniform delivery. Providing a single collaborative source of compliant design data, the Hercules platform developed by Majenta’s partner BIMobject will help your business to easily make pre-approved content available.
