Richard Eves Architects continues to aim to be at the forefront of technology advancement and have recently made the transition to adopting BIM technologies. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is more than a new technology; it is an innovative approach to the entire design, construction, and maintenance process. This technology provides the practice with the ability to operate more productively and produce higher-quality work. BIM allows us to create and review multiple design scenarios and convey clearly understandable options to the client .
From our client’s perspective BIM provides better co-ordination and collaboration with other consultants, conflict detection and risk mitigation, high levels of customization and flexibility, schedules and costings from a much earlier stage and maintenance and building life cycle projections. BIM offers the promise of a high-quality project, as well as time and cost savings. The 3D models enable our clients to gain a better understanding, early in the design process, of how their final project will look.
A key change introduced in Construction, Design and Management (CDM) Regulations 2015 is the replacement of the role of CDM co-ordinator with Principal Designer. The Principal Designer has responsibility for co-ordination of health and safety during the pre-construction phase and has the ability to influence the design.
Richard Eves Architects work with Health & Safety consultants to provide the necessary skills to undertake the role of Principal Designer, as well as, provide necessary support and advice to enable clients to meet their responsibilities.
Richard Eves Architects can produce images that are rendered architectural visualizations designed to communicate your architectural project at a level approaching photographic.
By bringing designs to life during the planning stages, we not only develop invaluable tools that inform and sell visions but also play an important role in finalising design decisions. Whether attracting investors, engaging the public and stakeholders or submitting a planning application, our goal is to win support and excitement with compelling imagery.
