BUILDING INFORMATION MODELLING (B.I.M)
BIM is a giant leap forward for the construction industry – seeing a step away from traditional two-dimensional drawings to 3D modelling. BIM enables us to create a virtual information model that goes beyond the planning and design phase of the project and extends throughout the building lifecycle. This brings a host of cost, construction and project management benefits, including budget savings and greater customer engagement.
As part of our ongoing commitment to embracing and helping drive future developments in the industry Borras are committed to becoming BIM level 2 compliant. We’re delighted the National Federation of Builders recognised our efforts as an exemplar project during the summer of 2013.
Implementing key components of BIM into the business means we are ready to take on future projects safe in the knowledge we are at the very cutting edge of design, construction and building maintenance. It’s all part of ensuring we continually improve the quality of our delivered product, reliability, timeliness and consistency of our processes.
I am writing to say that the process was excellent, and they have made a superb job of our kitchen. Nothing was too much trouble, and the workmen were very courteous, worked extremely hard, and had an excellent attention to detail in every way.
