Woodvale Construction Company has moved in line with the fast-paced advances in digital technology to deliver the highest possible standard of workmanship across all our schemes. Our overall aim is to exceed Client expectations and to add value at every given opportunity. The integration of BIM provides us with the medium to maximise the efficiency of our own performance as well as our supply chain.
Our commitment to digital construction is evidenced in our BS EN ISO 19650 accreditation. Working to this standard ensures that our procedures for managing and producing information are robust, consistent and complaint with the rigorous guidelines laid out by BSI.
Digital technologies and tools have transformed our lives. New ways of managing, operating and producing information have streamlined the processes of delivering and operating the built environment. For us, this makes design and construction safer, more efficient and more collaborative at every stage of a built assets’ lifecycle.
BIM is used to ensure clashes between M&E services, services and building fabric are designed out. Models are issued to each specialist contractor with design responsibility and the BIM Coordinator runs clash detection exercises throughout, ensuring issues such as integration of 3rd party equipment can be resolved.
BIM is also used to plan work sequencing ensuring that building fabric and M&E plant/systems are installed in a sequence that provides the highest quality, with no abortive work. The BIM model will also be distributed to the Client so that senior staff can visualise, explore and approve our proposals.
