The UK construction industry is currently experiencing a strong recovery and in order to keep up the trend, businesses in this sector are being encouraged to make more use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) or run the risk of being left behind by other countries across Europe and North America.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) has become increasingly popular in the construction industry in recent times, and its adoption by UK businesses is seen as something that needs to be increased if the UK wishes to retain its status as architectural leaders.
It is thought that the use of BIM can help to ease projects which are currently halted and could play an integral part in achieving many objectives for the construction sector over the next decade.
BIM works by giving contractors and architects a digital 3D copy of what a building will look like through each phase of construction. This enables businesses to determine any potential obstacles which might occur during the building process and make amendments prior to any work being started. This can save significant amounts of money for contractors in the long term by keeping projects within budget and ensuring on time delivery and avoiding any unforeseen setbacks.
At Royds, our dedicated experts can assist with all commercial agreements as well as drafting bespoke and precise contracts, to help ensure delays and disputes are averted where possible.
