Building Information Modelling: We are actively engaged with BIM and are involved in its deployment on a number of schemes.


alinea’s BIM proposition is an integral part of our Business Plan.

Our BIM Team is led by an associate – Richard Bates and supported by a BIM technician – Trevor Adams. They are both from architectural backgrounds and are active members of external industry BIM groups and Richard regularly lectures on the subject. Having their unique insight, experience and guidance enables us to all genuinely utilise all aspects and benefits of Building information Modelling.


Our commitment to BIM – further developing and complementing our BIM capability – is demonstrated by our scheme to train all of our surveyors.

Our Approach is ‘hands-on’; to work with the Design Team and BIM counter parts / specialists to establish our interests and part as a stakeholder before and during the BIMs creation. This enables us to have confidence in and gain in-depth knowledge of the creation of the BIM as well as influence its creation, organisation and content.
