For many years the increasingly competitive market place and pressure on consultancy firms to make savings has lead to a reduction in the quality of design and drawings produced to convey that design. All too often inaccurate or uncoordinated information is being used for procuring work packages, leading to a client being exposed to hidden additional costs when a contractor is appointed.

Poorly coordinated services can also lead to excessive wastage, less efficient systems and further additional charges to the client and delays in putting it right. This ultimately results in a reduction in the quality of the finished product and higher operating costs for the building owner during the life of the services within them. All this can change principally by ensuring two key things: Employing a Chartered Engineer with proven relevant experience in designing energy efficient systems, and ensuring the design is properly coordinated.

BIM for Integrated Design and Sustainability

To minimise the risks of inaccurate and uncoordinated design it is important to have a holistic approach. A holistic design approach provides strategies to achieve a true high performance building which is cost-effective in its entire life cycle, safe and secure, flexible, aesthetically pleasing, productive and above all sustainable. Through systematic analysis and by bringing energy efficient engineering design and sustainability experience together it is possible to achieve a more efficient and cost-effective building.

To transform and improve sustainable design practice and promote a new level of project collaboration with the professional team and contractors, state-of-the-art technology Building Information Modelling (BIM) can be used. As the world of buildings continues to change and grow in complexity, BIM facilitates complex processes and analyses that were previously too expensive or laborious to perform. It also helps better coordinated design and information, resulting in a more effective use of space and more efficient design. BIM helps alleviate problems during the construction phase and supports integrated and sustainable design to take developments to the next level.

The number of incentives and legislations, related to energy and sustainability of the buildings, is increasing day by day. Thinking ahead of legislation and being committed to achieve the most practical environmental design is the key to successful design.

Expert is a member of is a modern forward-thinking firm of engineers, designers, consultants and specialists offering a wide range of services for different types of building projects. His firm has invested in cutting-edge BIM tools to improve the quality of the design and achieve a more holistic design. Expert has brought together engineering excellence with energy and sustainability expertise to deliver the most sustainable and effective buildings. Having demonstrated the success of this strategy by completing various designs in London including the new Grange Tower Hotel, with anticipated best energy performance rating of its type in London, he has proved that he can make a difference.
