Vision 4 was engaged through the Ministry of Justice to continue to support their BIM Implementation Programme across the Department and into their Early Adopter Projects.
This work involved engagement across the Department as a whole, working with Designers, Contractors and Asset Managers on a range of different developments, covering both new build and refurbishment projects.
A significant development in BIM process that Vision 4 instigated and managed was a thorough review of information requirements and formats at all the key stages of the project lifecycle from initial briefing through to asset management. This was then developed further into a review of Procurement Processes and how BIM can lead to efficiencies in the engagement of both Consultants and Contractors.
As a final output to this project, Vision 4 worked with the Department to design and develop a BIM Value Model, looking at all the efficiencies and ultimate cost savings that BIM can bring across all projects. Based around a financial cost model, all aspects of the individual cost elements were reviewed to understand where, and to what extent, BIM efficiencies could save on cost. More importantly, this resulted in the creation of an Action Plan of steps to be taken to unlock and deliver these benefits across all future projects and in doing so realise considerable cost savings in the Departmental capital projects budget.
