The rapid emergence of Building Information Modelling (BIM) continues to revolutionise the way architecture, engineering and construction firms work together to communicate, solve problems, and build better projects.Contact
Accurate, verified geospatial data is key to the successful implementation of the BIM process. Murphy Geospatial can ensure that the geospatial aspects of a BIM model are verified as accurate and govern the flow of data into and out of the model so that it can remain a trusted single source of truth for all project stakeholders.
BIM is the process of managing the information produced during design and throughout a construction project. It describes the practice of creating a digital representation of a project and hosting it on a platform so that it can be used collaboratively by multiple project stakeholders. When correctly implemented, BIM offers significant savings in time and cost, much greater accuracy in estimation, and the avoidance of error, alterations and rework.
Adopting BIM involves much more than simply changing the software you use. To achieve all the benefits it offers, everyone in the architecture, engineering and construction industries will have to learn to work in fundamentally new and different ways. BIM is a whole new paradigm. Murphy Geospatial have developed years of experience in delivering our data through BIM and will work with our clients to advise and assist them with its adoption.
Once a project is constructed, an as-built validation survey enables further use of the BIM model as an asset management tool throughout the in-use phase of the asset lifecycle. The asset information model (AIM) uses the 3D geometry and associated metadata to integrate with facilities management and asset management platforms. For clients with a large portfolio of assets such as property management companies, utilities companies or transport infrastructure owners this economy of scale transfers into efficiency gains across the organisation.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) promises to deliver significant efficiency gains and reduce costs in the design and construction of our buildings and infrastructure. As more and more stakeholders adopt BIM practices, Murphy Geospatial can assist in this process. It is our goal to build the framework for a successful design and construction collaboration process by capturing and delivering our data through BIM-supported software according to the latest standards. Our data then provides a trusted base upon which a successful project can be built.
