Building Information Modelling (BIM)
Design Base Ltd are expert Building Information Modelling consultants working across the UK built environment industry. In 2009, our Building Information Modelling service launched with production of 3D Revit Models from 2D Measured Building Survey records. In 2012, following investment in Laser Scanning Survey technology, the service advanced to precision Point Cloud processing.
Today we generate Building Information Models from Point Clouds for Architects, Planners and Engineers and build Revit Families for a growing number of product Manufacturers. The service has grown in scale since 2016 when the UK Government implemented BIM design regulations for Public sector developments.
We offer a four-tier solution to Building Information Modelling based on RIBA’ s BIM Levels of Development (LOD)
Level 1: Massing, provides the simplistic volumetric shape of land and building geometry.
Level 2: Structural, adds further information by detailing walls, doors, and window openings, perfect for rights of light evaluation.
Level 3: Architectural, delivers full external and internal architectural details such as rainwater systems, door and window frames, masonry features, internal joinery, and sanitary furniture.
Level 4: MEP, completes the model with building services, heating, ducting, electrical and lighting layout.
