In achieving BIM Level 2 accreditation for its construction division, Mace Group has selected Causeway’s BIMMeasure automated measurement solution for measuring quantities from Building Information Models (BIMs). BIMMeasure was selected following extensive appraisal of other products on the market. It will form part of an integrated BIM-compatible solution that also includes Causeway Estimating and the CATO cost and programme management suite.
In achieving BIM Level 2 accreditation, Mace was subject to vigorous assessment across a wide range of criteria to ensure compliance with PAS 1192-2:2013, BS1192-4:2014 and BS 1192:2007. The company is now in a strong position to tender for centrally procured UK government projects.
Jon Harris, Head of BIM at Mace, commented:
“We’re delighted to receive BIM Level 2 verification PAS 1192-2. Extending our existing relationship with Causeway through the introduction of BIMMeasure has certainly been instrumental in this as it enables us to measure quantities from BIMs quickly, efficiently and accurately. Integration with other Causeway solutions is also of major importance in optimising our workflow processes and adding value for our clients.”
Paul Madeira, Executive Vice President with Causeway, added:
“We are delighted to be building on this already-strong relationship with Mace and supporting their BIM Level 2 capabilities through each stage of project delivery."
By introducing BIMMeasure, and replacing its previous estimating system with Causeway Estimating, Mace will create a highly efficient and streamlined workflow for both BIM and traditional projects. For example, BIMMeasure allows much more automation of the Take-Off process and any subsequent revision of existing Measurements taken from an existing model with just a few clicks.
These can then be easily transferred by drag and drop to the Estimating software as multiple, individual quantities or grouped quantities.
Further integration with CATO enables information from the estimate to also be used for cost planning and management.
