BIM is a process for creating and managing all information on a project – before, during and after construction. The output of this process is the digital description of every aspect of the built asset.

To achieve all the benefits it offers, everyone in the architecture, engineering and construction industries will have to learn to work in fundamentally new ways. The design is tested virtually before they are built and operated for real. This model reduces errors, which improves the quality of decision-making.

The common data environment is created and it is used to collect, manage and disseminate documentation, the graphical model and non-graphical data for the whole project team. Creating this single source of information facilitates collaboration between project team members and helps avoid duplication and mistakes.


In the UK, the Government Construction Strategy published in May 2011, stated a minimum requirement for Level 2 BIM on centrally procured public projects from April 2016.

Sustain Quality offer support throughout the BIM implementation process and with ongoing integration to comply with the UK legislation.
