Building information modelling (BIM) is an employer's requirement on the Fulford School Expansion project however it has been recently embraced by William Birch & Sons Ltd as we recognise the importance of the technology in our delivery of construction services.
On the Fulford School Expansion project BIM has been used for:
- Spatial management / planning to demonstrate to the client how areas will work
- Design co-ordination between consultants to ensure elements work together
- Scheduling of doors and windows
- Clash detection
Clash detection has proved invaluable on the Fulford School Expansion project classroom block where the fabricators model highlighted a steelwork/window clash some two months earlier then would have been the case under a traditional project.
As part of our ongoing commitment to environmental management, we are pleased to announce that William Birch has been accredited BS EN ISO 14001:2015 certification. Following a rigorous audit of our Environmental Management System we were delighted to have received zero non-conformances across all areas of the business. We are proud to be amongst some of the top UK businesses who have achieved accreditation to the latest 2015 standard
Lincoln Cathedral has appointed William Birch & Sons to begin the vital restoration and renovation works as part of the National Lottery funded Lincoln Cathedral Connected project.
The first phase of works will see our team restore and refurbish the Old Deanery and create the much-anticipated new visitor centre, which will display some of the Cathedral’s never seen before treasures.
The works will create jobs for local workers as well as offer work experience placements and apprenticeships for local students.
