Our multi award winning BIM team’s experience and utilisation continues to grow with the construction industry and alinea.


They, led by Richard Bates, are architecturally trained and have developed our ‘hands on’ approach. Our proven ability enables us to truly utilise the BIM; harvest accurate, validated quantities and areas for use throughout the project and advance the relationship between BIM and Procurement. The improved coordination, clarity and mitigation of risk, means more robust returns from the market.

We actively promote BIM methodology whenever possible; it’s a fully integrated part of the alinea approach. The benefits to projects and clients are immense; the level of coordination and accuracy of the design and data to accessibility and opportunity for value over the lifetime of the asset.

Our relationship, knowledge, guidance & advice with project teams constantly evolves; achieving successful BIM data production enabling alignment of design and cost for utilisation in estimating and procurement.
