What do you need to know about building information modelling?
‘BIM’ is a digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of a building. It is a newer digital tool for building design and is often more efficient than traditional methods. Tradesmen and professionals with a lack of experience in BIM are likely to try and charge you more for it as a service. Do not be pressured into paying these costs, as a firm with well established BIM software is unlikely to charge anything extra. Your choices may well have industry or college qualifications showing their expertise with BIM. Be sure to ask for evidence of their experience, such as examples of BIM work from previously completed projects. They should also be adequately covered with professional liability insurance (PLI) for if their modelling misses anything and results in errors in construction.
