Halliday Fraser Munro has adopted BIM since its inception, embracing the benefits of early design concept modelling, coordination and collaboration with clients and all members of the project team. This collaboration is central to our working methodology and is essential to comply with PAS 1192 and BIM Level 2 as defined by UK and Scottish Governments.
Using the latest industry-standard software such as Revit, 3DSMax and Navisworks – 3D design and modelling is used to assist with design reviews, coordination and facilitate clash detection. This includes identifying critical interface issues before construction and minimising the risks associated with redesign. Halliday Fraser Munro are experienced in working in a variety of online Common Data Environments where models are shared and this collaboration takes place.
BIM is a process, not just a model. From the first stages of a project, Halliday Fraser Munro develops a BIM database of building elements and spaces that become an essential tool for scoping out the project and establishing the brief. This database of information is continuously updated throughout the project to capture room requirements and technical data. This creates an information asset for Clients which can then be utilised for future maintenance and management needs as required by PAS 1192 and BIM Level 2.
Through rigorous coordination protocols, regular design team meetings and a problem-solving culture, Halliday Fraser Munro leads design teams to provide high-quality BIM information for highly complex projects.
