New Joint Venture aims to change the face of UK Building Information Modelling
Evolve Consultancy, the highly-respected BIM consultancy, and information management specialists, Augmentum, have teamed up to create ÆIM, a new Information Management Joint Venture. ÆIM brings together both teams specialisms in a new service offering that is second to none: Evolve’s expertise in Building Information Modelling strategy, implementation and training, partnered with Augmentum’s delivery of model management, model validation and delivery of designer and installer asset data requirements sets them apart from the competition.
The ÆIM Joint Venture offers a complete project Information Management service from concept to completion, drawing on the extensive experience of both companies. From British Standards implementation advice, preparation of Asset and Employers Information Requirements, development of project BIM Execution Plans through to hands-on model quality assurance, full coordination reviews, cloud-based issue tracking & reporting, and preparation of handover & asset data; ÆIM provides a holistic solution to projects of all sizes and complexities, regardless of their needs.
Nigel Davies, Managing Director of Evolve Consultancy comments, “This partnership allows us to offer an enhanced service and level of quality to our clients that we don’t believe can be matched. No matter what stage the project is at, or how demanding the timeframe, ÆIM is closely integrated with the project team in all aspects of BIM, removing risk and ensuring excellence at all times.”
Chris Barker, Company Director and Co-Founder at Augmentum agrees. “There’s so much synergy between our two companies. ÆIM provides an expanded team that are true experts in every facet of digital creation and delivery. Together, we believe, our project Information Management services are truly unique.”
