The main problems arise in the relationships between the project’s phases and […]


Level of Definition This project is one of the first to deliver fully integrated modelling in a BIM environment across design, construction and facilities management (FM). The university wanted a single source of information on the building that everyone could access. It also wanted electronic management of files linked to 3D models to give it […]
