The Managing Director of international multi-disciplinary engineering firm Kirby Group has hailed BIM as ensuring that Kirby have been able to carry out work which “would not have been possible” had it not been for the process.
Fergus Frawley spoke with Irish Building Magazine about the companies operations in the Republic of Ireland, praising the company’s adoption of BIM. Kirby began BIM implementation in 2012, and now utilise the process on most of their projects. The company believe it has “been an investment well worth making”:
“We use BIM on projects even where it is not specified by clients and we have found it to be to our mutual advantage,” explained Frawley.
The engineering experts have carried out a series of notable developments with BIM implemented, including a Telecity data centre, a project that saw Kirby “accurately install pipework throughout the building before all the walls were erected”, work that “would not have been possible” without BIM.
