The Government Construction Strategy was published in 2011 in the UK. The strategy set a minimum requirement for the UK BIM framework on centrally procured public projects, incorporating the requirement for all documentation and project information to be electronic. The construction industry drafted a number of BIM protocols, such as: Construction Industry Council (CIC) BIM protocol, which sets out the requirement to appoint an Information Manager.
Appointing an information manager is therefore essential and a requirement of the UK BIM framework project.
There are 3 main places within the UK BIM framework documentation where the role of the Information Management is discussed. These are:
The role of an Information Manager is highly skilled and involves challenges such as federating the asset model, supporting the consultants and supply chains with asset information capture and validation and producing data outputs at defined project stages.
BIM is essentially about turning data into information which in turn provides knowledge. If the data is missing, of the incorrect format, not delivered in time or just plain wrong 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 waste of time and money.
BIM generates huge amounts of digital data that needs continuous management throughout design and construction. Consequently, exceptional care is required to capture and reuse accurate data at different project stages, among various stakeholders within the project.
We can help you manage the complexities in developing and delivering asset information models and digital data, acting as an information gatekeeper to streamline the efficient exchange of project information during design and construction.
Our Information Management and Coordination services have been developed and refined over the past 3 to 4 years following the successful delivery of various projects for clients, contractors and consultants. We have spent time to really define the areas of a project where we can add value and improve the project outcomes.
In doing so we have developed a very transparent way to define our scope of services for any given project. The scope then plays a key part in the successful delivery of services ensuring the asset information models provided at handover are in line with the client’s requirements.
Majenta can deploy bespoke programs
We have experience in dealing with high-profile clients, such as Willmott Dixon, Wates, Bowmer & Kirkland, and the University of Cambridge, but we have also worked with many small to medium size enterprises. Because of this, we understand that no two BIM projects are the same which is why we work with you create a bespoke offering specific to you and your project needs.
Because we have a good understanding of the troubles you face, we are able to offer a tailored range of services. Each of which have been specifically designed to help improve your Information Management, processes and workflows.
If you have a project that requires an asset information model, and need some guidance on how this is achieved, please get in touch with our team of consultants and information managers for some advice.
"The guys from Majenta have become part of our team. They know what they need to do and they do it. Majenta is now helping us look beyond the design of buildings to their management during their entire lifecycle using BIM. We believe that this is where the real ongoing value will lie for the university."

"Their professional, efficient and successful approach from start to finish makes Majenta a pleasure to work with."
"As opposed to other client's internal FTP, Majenta is quick. The notifications have helped me and my team mates to track the right information which in-turn has saved time on both ends on various occasions. This feature is not available in internal FTP servers."
"The technical guys at Majenta Solutions have become our user-friendly interface; they really understand both Jaguar, our major client, and Ford."
