Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a process for creating and managing all of the information on a project – before, during and after construction. As more and more countries begin to mandate BIM, it is essential for practices to adopt BIM in order to remain competitive. Parametric Monkey can aid you along your BIM journey whether you are just starting out or want to take your processes to the next level.

BIM management

BIM can be a complex process and it is important to ensure you have a robust management plan. Parametric Monkey can assist in developing your BIM Execution Plan (BEP) to ensure more effective coordination, communication and collaboration. We work with the entire project team to clarify roles and responsibilities, standards to be applied and procedures to be followed.

BIM modelling

Certain building typologies are inherently more geometrically complex than others. Parametric Monkey has extensive experience in parametrically modelling precise geometry whatever the geometric complexity. We work with your team to ensure your 3D model captures the design intent and is accurate based on the level of detail required.

BIM Coordination

BIM is a collective process that requires cohesion and alignment amongst all stakeholders. We work with your team to help achieve these goals by running coordination meetings, undertaking clash detection and producing coordination reports.

BIM analytics

Sometimes BIM models can appear opaque to management not familiar with the software. Parametric Monkey uses a number of different tools to mine data which can be visualised in order to gain a clear insight into the health, quality and performance of the BIM model. These visualisation enables you to turn raw data into insight and can flag certain undesirable workflows before they get out of control.

Facilities management

Working with the building operator at the early stages of design, we can include and maintain data necessary for use in Facilities Management (FM) or asset tracking during the building’s operation.

Improving operational effectiveness with Dynamo

Across the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry, there are vast differences in how well companies execute basic tasks. The performing of these tasks better than how rivals perform them, is known as ‘operational effectiveness’.1 Operational effectiveness is important because it improves productivity and profitability. While many might be quick to point out that operational effectiveness is fundamentally different and not a substitute for a carefully defined strategy, if a company can’t get the operational basics right, it doesn’t matter how brilliant their strategy is.2 This article explores how companies can improve… Read More

Putting BIM in perspective

Building Information Modelling, or BIM, is often portrayed as the saviour of the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry. On the whole, BIM can be seen as a positive direction for the industry, attempting to address the inefficiencies and waste in the industry. Yet at the same time, numerous fractions of the BIM movement are threatening to hinder its cause. Go into any architectural office in the world today and you’ll find someone ‘doing BIM’. Typically with a technical background, they are known as evangelists, preaching the word of BIM. Listen to… Read More

BIM ecosystem

Building Information Modelling (BIM) entails interdependencies between technological, process and organisational/cultural aspects. These mutual dependencies have created a BIM ecosystem in which BIM related products form a complex network of interactions.¹ For a long time interoperability between these products has been essentially non-existent, resulting in users unwilling to interchange between different software platforms. Rather than using the best product for the job, users have preferred to remain in the software that they are most familiar with, possibly to the detriment of the design. One such example of this is conceptual massing within… Read More
