Building Information Modelling, better known as BIM, has dramatically changed the way medium and large-scale building projects are developed. BIM gives constructors the ability to collaborate and coherently assemble a complex model rather than independent drawings, massively improving accuracy in estimations, lowering costs, reducing errors and saving valuable time.
RICS are proud to be working in collaboration with BIM4SME to host the third RICS BIM4SME Awards, giving recognition to the best projects in the country which have been innovative in the way they leverage technology to improve building processes.
Graitec is proud sponsor for one of the award categories “Best Virtual Reality BIM”, confirming our position as promoters and enablers of BIM, as well as providers of solutions, expertise and support for construction companies, architects and engineers who wish to implement BIM. Our commitment to put innovation first is at the forefront of all we do, driving us to develop new technology and solutions to improve building practices.
To enter a project to RICS BIM4SME Awards is completely free, you’ll only need to download the entry pack here, write up your entry and send it to the Awards Manager (as specified in the Entry Pack). The deadline to submit your entry is the 7th of August.
