studioEAST has taken steps to implement BIM (Building Information Modelling) within the practice. Through the use of industry standard software (Autodesk REVIT) designs are developed not only in conventional 2D drawings but also in 3D.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process

One of the key elements is the Building Information Model. This not only allows an in-depth insight into the early design stages of a building but also allows collaboration with other design team members using BIM software.

This sees an optimised process allowing us to efficiently plan, design, construct and manage buildings.

There are 4 BIM ‘Levels’:

Level 0 – No collaboration; 2D drafting only
Level 1 – 3D Design; 2D Production Information
Level 2 – Collaboration on separate 3D Models
Level 3 – Full collaboration on a single shared Model

studioEAST is currently operating at BIM Level 1 and is placed to work at BIM Level 2 where opportunities and other design team members allow. The future is collaborative, efficient and insightful for both professionals and clients.
