BIM Projects
KD Group implementing BIM
KD Group has seen an increase in demand for BIM to be implemented on projects by our clients and we
have also realised the benefits of BIM. These benefits include reducing the cost, time and uncertainty of
design and construction. KD Group has implemented BIM and Revit MEP into the company for all future
projects. We employed the services of Amicus Technology to train our Contracts Managers and Project
Managers to use BIM and Revit MEP.
Our company in the last year has seen the great benefits from this software and our Senior Coordinator
Stephen Rogan has shown these benefits in the YouTube link above which is of the University of Cork, The
Assert Centre coordinated into a BIM Model Video.
Our Managers will be able to meet each week with other parties on the project in order to watch a three
dimensional visualisation of all of the site works planned for the following week and can discuss coordination, collaboration and safety management informed by this visualisation of the next week’s
Examples of Co-ordinated Projects in BIM/REVIT MEP
