What is BIM?

Building information modelling is a process for creating and managing information on a construction project across the project life-cycle. One of the key outputs of this process is the building information model, every BIM model has metadata (metadata is the full specification of the object) which will determine which object would be best for the job. Creating a building information model enables those who interact with the building to optimise their actions, resulting in a greater whole life value for the asset.

Benefits of BIM?

• Encourages collaboration and integrates work flow
• Promotes faster, more intelligent design
• Creates inherent efficiencies
• Facilitates accurate simulation and visualisation
• Assists effective life-cycle management
• Improves cost control and forecasting
• Optimises facilities and asset management

What is BIM to Nationwide Platforms?

BIM MEWPs are used to determined which machines would be best for the job from building the site to maintaining the site in the 100 year life-cycle of a project. Using BIM will determine which machine will have the correct weight, width/height to enter the working environment and the working height and horizontal outreach required. Effectively, it is like a digital site survey, but can determine machines for now and the future for the site.

We will be working with our suppliers to increase the BIM models in our library. If you would like to know more about BIM please contact us at BIM@nationwideplatforms.co.uk
