Growing demand for 3D Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the cleanroom design and build market has seen Clean Room Construction (CRC) build on its record success thanks to its well-established in-house BIM capability.
Almost half of CRC’s client base now specifically look to CRC’s experience and expertise in BIM, including Revit and Navisworks, when they need cleanrooms designing and building.
CRC’s Managing Director, Steve Lawton, said: “At CRC we embrace technology and innovation and we’re always looking at ways to improve our operation in order to add value to our clients and help them achieve their project goals. BIM is nothing new for CRC. Our decision to invest in BIM several years ago gave us a head start and we are now reaping the rewards of that investment. Our considerable in-house BIM resources and capability are proving to be a key differential in a competitive marketplace.
'BIM has been a core part of our design and build operation over a number of years and has numerous benefits. Firstly, it improves collaboration and co-ordination throughout the duration of projects as it facilitates clearer lines of communication. It also enables everyone to visualise and thoroughly analyse the intricacies of the project design which makes projects run more smoothly. The use of BIM also drives efficiency, helping to control costs, minimise risks and ensure projects are delivered on time and on budget.'
CRC has used BIM successfully on many projects including the National Graphene Institute for the University of Manchester, a tablet manufacturing facility for Aspar Pharmaceuticals and a cleanroom facility for GE Aviation.
