Balfour Beatty is a leading international infrastructure group. We finance, develop, build and maintain innovative and efficient infrastructure that underpins daily life, supports communities and enables economic growth. We use Building Information Modelling (BIM) to generate and manage vital information about a building or piece of infrastructure.
At every stage of the project lifecycle, from design through to decommissioning, BIM provides information that helps our customers make informed choices. This process makes the design, construction, operation and decommissioning process more efficient. Balfour Beatty is BIM Level 2 certified by the British Standards Institute (BSI).

Solibri develops and markets software solutions that improve the quality of building information models (BIM) and included datasets for building owners, designers and constructors. Solibri Model Checker is a tool that analyses and validates the integrity and quality of the design, constructability and handover information using logical rulesets to check against building codes, industry, company or project specific standards.
Spatial awareness algorithms and user defined rules allow the software to perform advanced checks based on the space utilization revealing potential flaws and weaknesses before a brick is laid
Any potential issues are highlighted and prioritized for communicating back to the author for remediation utilizing Excel, pdf or BCF (BIM Collaboration Format) files for advanced BIM workflows.
After the Quality Control process is completed the model can be used for accurate data mining and reporting on quantities or other reports such as COBie with a visual bi-directional link to the graphical model.
