Today I’m going to briefly talk about Building Information Modelling (BIM). According to the Autodesk website BIM (Building Information Modelling) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure. 

I first came across Building Information Modelling in 2009 at Laing O’Rourke’s head office in Dartford where they were prototyping the construction of buildings on a site close by their offices using BIM. I went there with a project director of Scott Wilson plc now AECOM. I was there because I  provided client development opportunities with and for Scott Wilson’s multimillion-pound buildings and infrastructure key clients, trying to embed a focus on the long-term value of client relationships. I’m now offering consultancy services to B2B companies around the world at https://lenabenjamin.com/product-category/consultancy-services/

Anyway back to the story, what was interesting to me on that visit to the Laing O’Rourke offices was how forward-thinking they were back then a decade ago. I’m not sure if that was because they were procuring for Crossrail and needed to showcase to the UK Government that they were the contractors for the job – potentially yes. 

Crossrail is due to open in December 2019 as the Elizabeth line and it is Building Information Modelling that is announced as the key reason for ensuring the multidisciplinary nature of the project was controlled and enabled dialogue between architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals. 

I mentioned Crossrail 1 Elizabeth line in the Property Business Club Podcast, now on Apple and Spotify, in Episode 1. The opportunities that BIM will provide to the local communities surrounding those stations is huge. Transportation is one of the reasons to ensure London can continue to be an economic opportunity for both nationals and international citizens and businesses. It allows more people to live and work in those areas and provides a need to establish residential, commercial and mixed-use developments in those surrounding areas using BIM.
