... With BIM standards and client requirements
The construction sector is going through a period of significant change. While economic conditions and a highly competitive market ensures that margins remain tight, technological change, BIM, and alternative ways of working, e.g. offsite construction, are creating opportunities for companies involved in construction to innovate and differentiate themselves from the competition. The client’s requirements for smarter and more environmentally friendly buildings also provides a number of challenges and opportunities for those operating in this sector.
Those trying to manage the construction process are faced with the challenge of delivering high quality projects in a cost-effective way, while maintaining the safety of all their employees. Luckily, there is now a huge quantity of data which can help inform every decision, the key is to manage it in a way that allows complete control and quick analysis.
Symetri provide leading technology solutions and services which increase the capability and capacity of all those involved in the construction process, including:
... With BIM standards and client requirements

Several reports have shown that while technology has had a massive impact in increasing productivity across almost all sectors, construction has yet to see the same positive impact, this is set to change. Those construction companies who can take advantage of mobile technology, integrated management solutions, big data analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, IOT, robotics/drones, BIM, augmented reality/virtual reality, 3D printing, and digital twins are likely to have a significant competitive advantage and see massive gains in terms of productivity. Symetri’s consultancy teamwork in partnership with construction companies to identify how technology adoption can be used to drive the desired changes to their business.
There is a huge amount of data generated which needs to be managed during the construction process. The change in working practices necessitated by BIM requires all information to be captured and managed in a standardised, consistent, and complete format to meet client specified requirements. Both construction companies and the client are now taking responsibility for the management of the Common Data Environment required to effectively manage this data collection. The increased engagement from owner/occupiers is due to a better understanding of the benefits accurate data can bring to them post-handover and for the entire lifecycle of the building. Symetri supports construction companies and clients in the management of data by providing technology, advice around best practice adoption, and in some cases the BIM or Information Manager to govern it.
In order to increase efficiency and safety, many construction companies are looking to carry out as much work as possible away from the construction site. There are huge benefits to doing this where possible in terms of increased quality, increased consistency, reduced downtime and reduced wastage.
Symetri are uniquely positioned to support those looking to undertake off-site construction projects with specialists capable of supporting your design, manufacturing, and construction teams. Symetri can take a holistic view of your current processes and provide the best solution and support to increase the efficiency of your operations.

DFC’s aim is to provide any fire safety engineering service that clients need during design, construction and operation in the built environment. Building Information Modelling (BIM) and digitised workflows characterises many projects in these industries nowadays.
However, Design Fire Consultants felt that the fire safety sector was still inclined towards 2D and manual mark-ups so realised they had a chance to change that and be in the vanguard of BIM adoption for their fire safety projects.Read more
The digital journey from construction through to facilities management.
This is a story of using multiple technologies on a refurbishment and extension project— gaining maximum insight and value from a Revit 3D model, streamlining workflows, formatting data for direct input from the design models into a Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) system, through to the use of point cloud technology to assist subcontractors, and monitor site progress every step of the way.Read more
Sustainability & efficiency are at the core of each of Morgan Sindall Construction's projects, so they needed to align their business objectives with the needs and expectations of their people, customers, supply chain partners and wider stakeholders.
One of the key items in the UK Government construction strategy is to reduce time during preconstruction which the Autodesk Construction Cloud is helping them achieve.Read more
