BIM Consultancy, What is it?
04.8.2016

The Ridge BIM function has the vision of being the leading UK provider of BIM consultancy services.

We will achieve this aspiration by focusing on forming strategic relationships with our clients that work to understand their challenges and needs, moving away from the current industry approach of project led BIM implementation. We will give our clients further credibility by committing to ensuring we become fully accredited by the leading industry bodies in BIM certification by 2017.

The BIM offering demonstrates Ridge’s desire to continually improve our existing expert knowledge base and Ridge and Partners LLP truly believe that BIM, with its increased collaboration and project transparency, will further enhance our ability to serve our clients.

The Ridge BIM Consultancy service bridges the information gap between design, construction through to operation, delivering our clients reduced costs and improved efficiences via a whole life cycle BIM Strategy and Delivery model. There are 4 distinct stages to Ridge’s BIM service:

Stage 1 – Derive Understanding: Provides dedicated resource to support our clients in examining what BIM is and how it could be of benefit to their individual organisation.

Stage 2 – Strategic Definition: Forges a strategic partnership to firstly define our client’s business strategy and then develop the delivery processes and templates to empower our clients from being passive BIM users on projects to active users across their estate.

Stage 3 – Project Implementation: This enables Ridge to act as a trusted partner in an information Management role to ensure project compliance against BIM processes and deliverables.

Stage 4 – Operational Management: Provides our clients with continuous support and innovation in the use of an Information Model while identifying future savings potential and systematically completing the feedback loop, embedding lessons learns across future

The service will support our clients in understanding where the value is for them and how BIM will act as a catalyst in being able to achieve their targets. The below model highlights some of the key deliverables each stage will deliver.
