Ultimately BIM is about improving collaboration and information exchange between different members of the design team. From our perspective BIM has two key benefits in the short-term: providing a better service for our clients; and improving our efficiency and profitability on projects.

We use Autodesk Revit BIM software to produce 2D and 3D Drawings. ​By modeling design in three dimensions, Building Information Modeling (BIM) can increase productivity across the board for designers. It surpasses the 2D drawing process by streamlining coordination between collaborators and alerting all users to collisions between systems that previously would not have been detected until the field.

We believe that good communication makes for better design. Our approach is open and collaborative and we use technology as an enabler to help improve the way we work. By sharing data-rich, 3D models, we develop our designs together with our clients, other consultants, contractors and suppliers as well as planners and other stakeholders. This means that the whole team is able to input and be involved in the process from the earliest stages.

Lewis is at the top of his game. Very creative with his ideas and a great project manager too.

We have found Lewis very approachable and always there on the end of an email/phone when needed . Some of Lewis designs / ideas which we weren’t going to go with , we are so glad we followed his lead definitely has an eye for design. Would definitely use again on another project.
