Full BIM Design
CGP MEP and our staff have been at the forefront of collaborative design through BIM and as a result has extensive knowledge and the shared experience of being part of many projects, utilising an array of different BIM software platforms as a design collaboration tool since our inception.
We focus on close collaboration with end users, operators, architects, main contractors and MEP contractors, ensuring the design process meets its ultimate objectives.
CGP has realised the benefits both during design, installation and handover phases of many projects and utilise BIM working practices, at the appropriate levels on all projects that we are involved in.
All our staff are trained in and have access to Navisworks, Revit MEP and FABCAD as standard as well as platforms to use models in different analysis software such as IES and Rhino.
We have embraced the advice given by innovators such as Sir John Egan in ‘Rethinking Construction’ and defined our BIM process as ‘BETTER INFORMATION MANAGEMENT’ with the objectives being to focus on an integrated design approach resulting in a reduction in reactive design time, construction time, reducing costs and energy consumption leading ultimately to a reduction in production of greenhouse gas emissions.
‘BIM’ is interpreted in many ways but within CGP MEP it is our way of working and in simple terms, BIM aids the communication within all the parties of a project in a seamless and collaborative manner.
Adopting BIM principles and fundamentals is key to continuous improvement in enabling our design efficiencies to improve and subsequently reduce wasted time, money and resources for ourselves and clients.
