BIM. Technologies, as the UK’s leading BIM consultancy, provides strategic advice, draft BIM protocols, BIM Execution Plans, and all associated guidance and advice on technology and software implementation. Working hands-on at project level as BIM Coordinators throughout the entire construction project, we ensure that the Building Information Model is utilised to its fullest potential.
Building Information Models can enhance the capabilities for reviews and the quality control of design information resulting in errors and omissions traditionally seen in 2D drawings resolved as the project is reviewed. The dimensionally accurate models can be clash and clearance checked ultimately resulting in a “build twice and construct once” approach which saves time and reduces cost.
Kong’s previous experience of working with Building Information Models will marry perfectly with the existing approach of BIM. Technologies and be an invaluable addition to the team as he takes on future projects including the Chilterns Academy project, the Birmingham Conservatoire, and the Leeds HMRC.

“Working at BIM. Technologies has exceeded my expectations and is unlike anywhere I have worked before. The company truly are at the forefront of digital innovation in the construction industry. I hope that my experience from having worked for some of the major design practices in the UK on some of the most high profile architectural projects in the world will go some way in contributing to the continuing success of BIM.
