Successfully adopting BIM within the supply chain

Since the government mandate for BIM was first released in 2011, Facilities and Estate Engagement organisations have been key to the successful implementation and adoption of BIM.

In April 2016, BIM Level 2 was adopted as a minimum requirement for all centrally procured public projects, which means that being able to set out and define exact requirements and ensure that the supply chain is fully engaged and committed to these requirements has been instrumental. Because of this, coordinating your Supply Chain can be a difficult task which is why we have created a dedicated service offering for Supply Chain Management.

BIM Benefits

Facilities and Estate Management organisations been able to fully understand their deliverables by identifying assets and what BIM is actually trying to achieve as a whole.

Advantages of BIM in the area of Facilities and Estate Management:

  • Building-related data are easily transferable from the builder to the operator and end users
  • Facilities can be located with less difficulty, especially in the case of large and disjointed building portfolios, whereas the technical sheets of the buildings are readily available in 3D format
  • Facilities can be visualised by stakeholders in real time
  • Significant reduction in downtime & mistakes by sourcing accurate information
  • Optimise use Planned Preventative Maintenance; predict & control maintenance budgets
  • Strategic investment decisions (e.g. sweat or replace assets); understanding full lifecycle costs
  • Avoid commissioning of unnecessary building surveys
  • Optimise utilisation of the estate: Space Management
  • Reduction in time diagnosing reactive maintenance issues: access 3D model
  • Ensure adherence of contractors to preferred data standards
  • Optimise design for sustainability goals, patron/staff well-being
  • Re-use 3D models and data as part of Smart technology initiatives


As a result of our Facilities management services, organisations such as the University of Cambridge are already paving their way through BIM readiness and compliance.
