What is BIM?
BIM (Building Information Modelling) is the collaborative exchange of information across the entire supply chain of a building project, using three-dimensional models that are in machine-readable electronic formats, consistent with open, non-proprietary standards.
BIM models increase the efficient planning, designing, construction and management of buildings and infrastructure.
Advantages of Niftylift BIM Models
Niftylift BIM models can be manipulated into various operational configurations including fully-stowed, for site-access and clearance considerations; fully-extended and fully-elevated for operational reach performance. The full operational working envelope is also included with each Niftylift BIM model.
Benefits of BIM for Architects
Niftylift BIM models offer the ability to allow architects and building contractors to anticipate on-site challenges that they may face before they break ground. This allows them to reduce risk and eliminate guesswork at the very start of the project, which can increase efficiency and improve operation, once the project has started.
Benefits of BIM for Hire/Rental Companies
The main advantage to the Hire (Rental) company is that the equipment required for a contract can be identified much earlier in the planning process. This allows the Hire company to better manage its machine utilisation and transportation requirements, and ensure that equipment is delivered at the correct time to complete each task.
Niftylift BIM Compliance
All Niftylift BIM objects on Bimstore are BS 1192-4 compliant.
