BIM (Building Information Modelling) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure. ACB Group are working closely with their client to engage early in the design process allowing our clients leverage of our specialist technical design knowledge as early in the solution delivery cycle as is possible.
