The Building Information Modelling (BIM) process allows architects and contractors to create and share 3D graphical representations of models.
Becoming increasingly popular, BIM is often used by architects to create designs; soon, it will become the norm to use BIM in all construction design processes.
From 2016, for instance, it will be compulsory for those working on public sector building projects to use BIM.
Companies must be prepared to embrace the digital building revolution to meet this upcoming legislation.
CMS decision to invest over £50,000 in becoming BIM ready shows that it is prepared to meet the new requirements.
The company is now prepared to support architects who are designing and managing their projects with BIM.
CMS is also working with local authorities and contractors to establish a BIM strategy, which will ensure that its new software is successfully deployed for building envelope solutions.
Some of these solutions include doors, windows and aluminium curtain walling facades for public sector buildings, such as schools for the education sector.
