EB/Architects’ BIM management philosophy and approach is founded on the principle that BIM is a means to an end, not an end in itself. It always has to be a project-based, results-driven procedure, starting with a thorough assessment of the Employer’s Requirements and of the anticipated outcomes.more
BIM management requires an extremely diverse set of management skills and toolsets. This roll is often called upon to provide tips, tricks, technologies, tools, and strategies to better manage the company's BIM environment. A BIM Manager needs to have the ability to tackle problem identification, problem solving, user motivation, senior management support, budgeting, training program justification, objection handling and more.
EB/Architects have successfully practiced management workflows and protocols and applied international BIM standards and specifications for all the projects they have designed for more than one decade now.
They have also undertaken the BIM Managers role for projects designed or constructed by others as a part of their wider scope, as was the case of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center construction where their BIM Management tasks were accompanying their architectural engineering, construction, and shop drawings documentation services.
In projects like the new Dubai Electricity and Water Authority they provided BIM Management services addressing the challenging task of coordinating more than 25 Models comprising the federated model of the largest zero energy facility in the world. In pursuing a successful resolution of more than 300,000 clashes they developed an innovative and pioneering methodology and they supported it with customized IT tools. Endorsing BIM in all aspects of the scope, EB/Architects also prepared the Employer’s Information Requirements document, regarding the implementation of BIM during construction phase.
They have also exercised their BIM management skills in fields that lay outside their core expertise, like in the case of the Rail Baltica project, an ongoing greenfield railway infrastructure project intended to be a catalyst for building the economic corridor in Northeastern Europe. EB/Architects acted as the BIM managing entity for the preliminary stage of the Obermeyer-Prointec consortium that is responsible for the design of the Parnu-Estonia/Latvia Border section, setting up BIM execution plan, protocols and applicable workflows in alignment to the Employer’s Information Requirements.
