Innovation is the creation of better, more effective products, processes, technologies and ideas. Innovation should not be synonymous with risk taking. We know that innovation is as much about finding simpler and better ways to do things as it is about finding new things to do.
Our team are always looking to develop innovative and relative solutions to any design challenges or issues throughout the project. We actively seek opportunities to engage with industry regarding current and emerging challenges and opportunities including construction methods, technology, materials and systems.
We appreciate the benefits of BIM in Built Environments for both project delivery and operations, in creating more collaborative, efficient and standardised project delivery and automated and expedited consumption of geometry and data into facilities management and operations systems. We are committed to a ‘top down’ approach to BIM implementation and we have qualifications in Collaborative BIM. This ensures the alliance of years of experience in design and construction with new methods of delivery. It is a prerequisite that all new staff are proficient in Revit and BIM. CCG use a variety of tools for carrying out analysis, simulation and communication of project information, including:
- Autodesk Revit is our primary authoring tool.
- Navisworks Manage is used for design collaboration and clash renditions. NBS specification information is cross-referenced with objects in models.
- We use Asite as our standard Common Data Environment (CDE) but we have also experience with numerous other CDE number systems.
- Revit Server is used for collaboration between our offices and where suitable BIM 360 is used.
CCG believes that with BIM we can build a better product for end users. BIM is assisting on being in control of the Design and Construction process and simulates the construction process to create a safer working place. When using BIM we coordinate the work between disciplines to create synergy and avoid duplication. Using BIM enables more efficient and effective collaboration. To avoid construction conflicts the BIM model is used for clash detection and to manage interfaces. This allows the project team to work more efficiently and potential risks are identified at an early stage.
