Tony Gee produces all new projects in accordance with BS1192:2007 and to BIM levels 1 or 2 depending on client specifications. Our strategy, reinforced by a training programme for all relevant staff, is to have all new projects produced to BIM level 2 in advance of the government target and to work closely with our clients and contractors to progress into BIM level 3 in the near future.
Tony Gee has applied the principles of BIM prior to its official implementation by managing and effectively utilising CAD data for civil engineering and building projects for a number of years. The BIM processes are therefore naturally integrated into our design and quality management systems, controlling the flow of documents, drawings and models through the design process.
The use of 3D BIM on larger projects is particularly valuable as complex engineering can be more easily visualised and communicated to all project stakeholders. Our Clients have benefited from our 3D models as they can be used during the construction phase to intelligently link model items with construction activities in real time using sequencing tools.
3D modelling is currently used on all projects that we believe will benefit from the advanced features. For example, recent highway and rail schemes have been modelled in 3D using Bentley MX, Power Rail, Microstation and AECOsim as well as Autodesk AutoCAD, Revit Structural and Civil 3D.
We have used BIM processes and 3D modelling on many large project structures for LUL, Crossrail, Network Rail, Thameslink and the Highways Agency. These projects include the East London Line Extension, Blackfriars Bridge, Abbey Wood Station, Reading Station Area Reconstruction and A453 Widening.
