Willmott Dixon BIM boost

Willmott Dixon claims it is the first contractor to achieve company-wide BRE Global BIM Level 2 Certification for use across its entire construction, residential and interiors activities.

The company has made a significant investment to equip it with experts based in every office that are certified to provide BIM Level 2.

Willmott Dixon is using BIM on an increasing number of projects, including delivering £100 million of projects for Birmingham City University, the National Space Technology Centre in Oxford and three secondary schools in Liverpool creating nearly 5,000 places. It is currently using BIM to build a new home for the Met Office’s supercomputer in Exeter as well as national colleges for High Speed Rail in Birmingham and Doncaster.

This will expand with a network of BIM experts in every Willmott Dixon office who can advise and guide clients who are keen to embrace the visualisation technology at an early stage in the project cycle.

Garry Fannon, Head of BIM for Willmott Dixon’s construction business, commented: “BIM provides huge benefits that enable all teams to work better throughout the construction process to achieve the high quality finish we expect. Being a recognised provider of BIM Level 2 means we are also well positioned to meet the Government mandate for BIM use on public funded projects.”

To embed the process further in the supply chain, the company is also about to roll out a national supply chain BIM initiative that will enable hundreds of SME to be conversant with the technology.
