Bam Nuttall first engaged with AIMIS when working with Transport for London on the project to upgrade 3 of London’s river crossings. AIMIS were brought on to respond to the detailed information requirements set out by TfL

We worked with BAM Nuttall’s designers to ensure compliance with BIM standards, delivering the project to the PAS 1192 suite of documents, as was the requirement at the time (but has now been superseded by BSI EN ISO 19650).

BAM Nuttall continue to work with AIMIS as a partner on a number of other exciting civil and infrastructure projects around London.

Although no BIM requirements were stipulated by the City of London Corporation, BAM Nuttall had the foresight to deliver using digital processes, with the help of AIMIS, on another major bridge refurbishment, this time the iconic Tower Bridge.

The work closed Tower Bridge for 3 months (unprecedented in its history), involving a full refurb and resurfacing of the bridge bascules. During the process, to support any future maintenance requirements, underground mapping of all utility services and the mechanical drives which raise the bridge were captured using laser scanning technology and integrated with the BIM model.

A further landmark project came in the shape of an expansion to London City Airport which saw 1,100 concrete piles introduced to the bed of King George V dock, which now support a new 75,000m2 concrete deck. This project was fully compliant with BIM Level 2 standards (again, the requirement at the time) and is now in operation as new aircraft stands and a parallel taxiway. These new facilities see huge benefit from the ease of pro-active facilities management, and maintenance provided by the data recorded in the process.

An ongoing relationship has seen AIMIS support BAM with numerous high-profile tenders which have witnessed the transition between PAS 1192 and BS EN ISO 19650 as well as supporting their strategy for full digital transformation including upskilling their internal resource to manage compliant IFC and COBie data.
