In January, FK Group was awarded BSI re-certification to BIM Level Two following an extensive audit process.
FK Group’s extensive design team has been working to the standard for several years now across both façade and construction sides of the business.
Currently, the group is working on a range of BIM Level Two schemes, both in the UK and internationally via FK Group’s Dubai office.
In addition to the re-certification, FK has been able to use BIM to create and implement bespoke content to enhance efficiency in design, service and operations.
Currently BIM Level Two is being used extensively on the Tiger Way site in Hackney, London, a mixed use scheme providing primary school facilities for 420 children alongside 89 residential properties.
On the Tiger Way project we are using our own created content to automate multiple elements on the external façade. In addition, the team is also using BIM to ensure efficient scheduling and support structure.
Design director Richard Robinson said: “The BSI re-certification to BIM Level Two yet again demonstrates our knowledge within the sector and our ability to deliver fully collaborative projects.”
FK Group’s design vision is for BIM to become part of our everyday DNA. To achieve this we are repeatedly investing heavily in IT infrastructure and BIM training to continually improve our offering to clients.
Richard added: “Currently most supplier content is created for the architect and only gives a visual representation of the product rather than the specific information we need as a specialist contractor.
“The next step we’d like to see would be for the rest of the supply chain to create the type of adaptive content that allows for accurate installation drawings and order schedules to be produced directly from the model.”
FK Group’s BIM experience spans many years on a wide range of project types and industry sectors. Recently, FK’s construction teams delivered a significant distribution centre project for a major online retailer. The project, which was completed within a 14 week programme, was delivered to BIM Level Two and fully scheduled using FK’s bespoke design software.
