RLB BIM Protocol Guide for clients and designers released today

Released today, the RLB BIM Protocol Part 1: A Guide for Clients and Designers is part of a suite of documents aimed at clients, designers and cost managers. View the introduction video.

Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) has embraced Building Information Modelling (BIM) and is working within a BIM environment across all of our service areas.

To support this change in our working environment, RLB has developed its own in-house software (ROSS 5D) which interfaces with BIM files created by the different software used by designers and consultants.

ROSS 5D also dynamically links to our extensive cost database.

BIM represents a massive opportunity for our industry to improve the effectiveness and efficiency in various aspects of design, construction, operation and maintenance.

RLB believes we are rapidly moving towards Integrated Project Delivery (IPD).

This move will see further procurement benefits as all stakeholders collaborate and share risk / return to achieve optimised outcomes.

As an industry leader, RLB has both the knowledge and expertise to contribute to projects throughout all phases, from concept design to facility management.

Our vast experience includes working with architects, engineers and facility managers across a variety of platforms and BIM software.

RLB is confident that effective collaboration across the project team can provide greater value to our clients and the project as a whole.
