Upon its foundation, Seymour Architecture invested in software to enable Building Information Modelling (BIM) and coordination, utilising Revit for in-house efficiencies. With its extensive experience and in-depth knowledge the company has established BIM Protocols ensuring compliance with the relevant parts BS and PAS standards necessary to achieve outputs consistent with BIM Level 2.
Working with the relevant documents and guidance, we have embedded the BIM processes into all aspects of our business. We have developed working protocols and templates that ensure the elements affecting the architectural design are inherent in our output. These protocols are the foundation for our targeted ISO9001 certification. BIM offers a platform to allow information sharing; improving consistency, communication and understanding between all parties involved, allowing informed decision making, and increased quality control throughout the process. The use of BIM does not cease at completion but instead can be utilised through the building’s life and ultimate demolition. Seymour Architecture assists their clients to ensure the BIM process offers them best value when assessing their overall project objectives. This may be simple benefits such as 3D visualisation and increased coordination, or by taking a holistic approach and reviewing opportunities for standardisation across projects, facilities management, and incorporation of 4D (time) or 5D (cost) data, model analysis.
