Building Information Modelling is a hot topic in the Construction Industry and with a Government Plan extending past 2030 it is likely to continue that way. It is rapidly changing the way project teams produce and coordinate design and construction information for building projects.


Through BIM we bring together all of the information about every component of a building, in one place. It makes it possible for anyone to access that information for any purpose. There are a number of ways this information may be utilised, e.g. to integrate different aspects of the design more effectively which would result in a reduction in the risk of mistakes or discrepancies and abortive costs minimised.

BIM data can be used to illustrate the entire building life-cycle, from inception to completion and beyond. Relative spaces, systems, products and sequences can be integrated which may signify a conflict detection which prevents errors creeping in at the various stages of design development and construction. The use of this intelligent digital information adds value, reduced risk and improves product and service quality for our clients. We use Autodesk Revit Architectural Software as well as Navisworks to enable the import and export of design data for the use of ‘Open BIM’.


Frank Shaw Associates has an established BIM expertise and protocols including standards based on the AEC (UK) BIM Industry Standards for Autodesk Revit. We have established a portfolio of completed projects using BIM from concept design stage through to completion.
