At Chaplin Farrant we see BIM as in integral way of how we work. It is not a ‘to do’ BIM or ‘not to do’ BIM but rather a sliding scale of excellence in providing the right information at the right time. BIM tools, such as Autodesk Revit, AutoCAD, NBS specification tools, are part of this and Chaplin Farrant have been using these for decades.

BIM is implementing better ways of working which requires a fundamental shift in the culture of the construction industry.

At Chaplin Farrant we strive to provide our clients the best advice when it comes to BIM and BIM services. We advise on how to best use BIM and the extent of its use as relevant to each specific project; a tailored approach dependent upon the business need for the particular project or programme and the associated procurement cycle.
