Building Information Modelling (BIM) is more than a design tool.

Andrew Bagnall, from GHD Woodhead, says the greatest benefits will come from sharing data throughout construction and maintenance.

“What’s missing is a more well-defined procurement process, where clients are educated up front and want to use BIM, not just for architecture and design, but the concept, master plan, design and documentation, through construction, and continue this process through to facilities management for [the duration of the asset’s] life span,” Andrew says.
