Gruner Case Study

BIM collaboration for business success

Get better every day with BIM

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is fast becoming a necessary requirement for projects within the AECO sector. Tenders and contracts can list BIM as an essential, and it’s clear to see why.

With BIM, project teams are able to make early, reliable statements about a variety of crucial build aspects, such as cost and defects, whilst also collating valuable data that feeds into later projects. These insights are great for current projects, and even better for future projects as the analysis can further improve the safety, efficiency, cost and even sustainability of projects later down the line.

The benefits of BIM are often championed, our case study with Gruner will show you a real-world example of BIM in action.
