More effective work planning
Building on our work to digitise the condition survey process, BAM has now visualised the survey results by creating hospital floor layouts that show the condition of each room. These allow BAM and the NHS Trust to see at a glance what work needs to be undertaken over a five-year period and schedule these activities so that they cause minimal disruption to the hospital’s daily operations. Currently the layouts are paper based, but we are working to take this information and place it within the BIM model so that the client will be able to have all the information they need at their fingertips, while having the confidence that what they are seeing is the latest version.
BAM PPP is also using the layouts in their discussions with their funders, who need to see work plans before they will release funds. The diagrams give the team a visual tool, which is quick to explain and easy to understand, helping them to secure the money they need.
