BIM is transforming the way we design buildings, communities and cities and helps to streamline processes throughout the project life cycle. By utilising BIM we help to avoid design alterations, reducing risk and re-work, and ultimately provide cost saving to our clients.

We see BIM as a part of our natural progression towards better engineering and increasing value for our clients. By approaching BIM as “business as usual” we ensure the highest quality design is delivered with a lifespan that endures the life of the asset. The introduction of BIM into infrastructure engineering is something we embrace and continue to develop.

We are actively using BIM methodologies to deliver collaborative and coordinated design on a number of projects ranging from the Sydney Metro North West mega project (include link to project), to individual local sewer pump stations.

SMEC has been consistently working in live collaborative sharing environments for many years creating efficient and highly customised CAD and design systems for multi discipline and multi-site operations. We utilise the same approach in BIM.

Our vision and methodologies in developing and managing BIM stem from a collaborative design process whereby our discipline teams are developing and coordinating models in a live environment utilising a process of design for construction and active clash avoidance.
