Drawing on BIM expertise

29th March 2017

BUILDING information modelling is revolutionising construction projects around the world – and Soben Contract & Commercial aim to be the leading quantity surveyor business embracing it.

The realm of digitised construction – in which computer systems generate fundamentally far higher quality information than drawing-based designs ever could – is one that provides a natural fit for Soben, according to the company’s Managing Director Scott Smyth.

In an interview with Property and Development magazine (below), he says that by embracing BIM, Soben – who prepare bills of quantities for tendering contractors for projects valued at £2.5 billion per year – can continue to grow at an impressive rate and aspire to be a truly world-class business.

He acknowledges that some competitors see BIM as a threat but asserts that Soben have embraced the technology.

Scott adds: “Consequently, our BIM specialist quantity surveyors carry out a robust forensic review of the BIM model on behalf of our clients to ensure that all elements of the design are appropriately captured, tagged and specified.”
