BIM Knowledge Transfer Partnership
A BIM Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) is a service helping a AEC Company to improve its competitiveness and productivity through the better use of
knowledge, technology and skills that reside within the Building Simulation
Lab’s Knowledge Base.
A Knowledge Transfer Partnership serves to meet a core strategic need
and to identify innovative solutions to help that business grow. BIM KTP can deliver significant increased profitability for business partners as a direct
result of the partnership through improved quality and operations, increased
sales and access to new markets.
There are three
principle players within a BIM knowledge transfer partnership:
- AEC Buisness partner - This is usually
a AEC Company (including not-for-profit) but in some cases it can be an Education Organisation
or a Local Authority. Building Simulation Lab’s KTPs can support a broad
cross-section of organisations, regardless of size.
- Knowledge-base partner- This is Building
Simulation Lab Ltd, a company that offers services worldwide in the areas of Design
Thinking, BIM, CAD, CAM, Modelling, Simulation, R&D and Training.
- KTP Associate(s) – Each partnership assigns
one or more high calibre Associates, transferring the knowledge the company is
seeking into the business via a strategic project.
Rationale for Knowledge
Effective innovation (the successful commercial exploitation of new
ideas such as BIM) involves knowledge, technology, skills and adaptability to
implement it, which is not always embodied in equipment or codified in an
easily transferable form.
People embody the skills and often the real know-how to effect
innovative change in businesses. Knowledge developed or improved in academic
institutions and specialist consulting companies (knowledge base) may need
extensive or intensive adaptation to particular business applications. A
qualified person with a direct link to these sources is the ideal transfer
agent. Human capital and the needed Knowledge Base are the strongest advantages
Building Simulation Lab can offer.
The ability of a project-based business in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) to deliver projects to scope, on time and within budget is crucial to its success. BIM is the latest development that can assist you to
achieve that throughout all stages of a project’s lifecycle.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an approach
that combines 3D design,
simulation, and complex data management in a real-time, single collaborative
environment - providing a digital prototype of an actual building
before it is built. BIM allows all players from key building development
disciplines - including design, fabrication, manufacturing and installation to
optimise the art of façade design, improve profitability and productivity while
adhering to complex engineering principles.
