Pioneering Design with Building Information Modelling (BIM)
BIM enables construction professionals to digitally model a building and use the BIM data to reduce the risk of mistakes or discrepancies at an early stage, making for more cost-effective, safe construction, improved carbon performance and predictable planning.
UK BIM processes range from Maturity Level 0 to Level 3. Typically, a Level 1 project will use a mixture of 3D CAD and 2D work and is the level at which most private sector companies moved to initially. Now required for centrally procured public sector projects, Level 2 denotes projects where all parties use their own 3D CAD models and design information is shared through a common file format, enabling any organisation within the project to combine the data with their own.
In this session we will explore the advantages of moving to BIM Level 2 for data centre design and the importance of all partners being involved in that process.
