Successful use of BIM at Belfast-based McLaughlin & Harvey is bearing fruit, and a staff member has won with Construction News.
McLaughlin & Harvey submissions manager Stanley Hair won the iPad mini in a prize draw after completing the Construction News BIM Level 2 survey.
The survey sought views from more than 150 industry firms on the widespread use of BIM and informed Construction News’ in-depth state-of-the-industry BIM report.
McLaughlin & Harvey has enjoyed success on various schemes with BIM, Mr Hair explained.
He said the firm has completed several projects operating to BIM Level 2 maturity after establishing BIM protocols and procedures, adding that it had done this with assistance from external specialists and an in-house BIM steering group.
“One of the biggest challenges we see is getting full team buy-in from clients, designers and supply chain partners,” Mr Hair said.
“The industry is now familiar with the term ’BIM’, but its implementation means different things to different people.
“We work with clients at both tender and construction stage to agree BIM requirements and work with project partners to deliver and meet BIM objectives to the benefit of both clients and projects.”
