Amwell Systems – Embracing the need for BIM

In a recent survey by Construction News (CN) “Culture change” was cited as the biggest issue companies faced when implementing BIM.

Embracing Change
At Amwell we are constantly focussed on embracing change within the industry, making it as easy as possible to specify our washroom products. With 72% of those surveyed by CN also commenting that it is “imperative to invest in BIM in the next 12 months” we recognise how important it is to comply with this and as a manufacturer offer our customers the most comprehensive BIM models possible.

In-house designers and architects
Our dedication is such that we employ an in-house team of architects and designers who for the last 12 months have been working tirelessly to produce detailed, user-friendly BIM models for all our washroom products using Revit 2012.

Offering the best models
Although the launch of our models couldn’t come quickly enough we wanted to make sure they were the best they could be….so we took them on a road test.

Pick Everard in Leicester were pleased to accommodate this trial and Project Architect Chong Wong met with us to drop them in to a current project he was working on to see how they fared.

At the meeting Chong expressed that parameters within some manufacturers models can be confusing and not easy to use. But whilst trialling our Splash family Chong commented “When I look at your models I know what I am getting” and that our models were “comprehensive and user friendly”.

We also met with Stephen George and Partners’ Principle Architect and BIM co-ordinator Richard Rhodes who explained that draw speed was important when creating a BIM project. With this in mind he tested our models within one of his current projects and was pleased to find that they were not only “flexible” but accommodated the need for fast draw speed too.

Fully invested for the future
With more than a ¼ of organisations now using BIM as a default solution, which is a statistic only set to rise rapidly in the coming months and years, Amwell are fully invested in a concentrated and continued BIM effort involving designing, creating, testing and modifying our families so we have the best washroom models the industry has to offer.
