Building Information Modeling

Project BIM models developed by the firm include those for the Radiation Oncology Centres for Cork and Galway Hospitals, Office Blocks at the Citywest campus and refurbishment and upgrading works to an existing industrial use building in Shannon for a South African based company.

The firm has an appointed BIM Manager and a number of BIM support staff including BIM Coordinator and BIM Technicians.

Senior staff in the firm have completed post-graduate qualifications in BIM related courses including a Masters in Construction Informatics, Post-Graduate Certificate in BIM Technologies and Post-Graduate Diploma in Collaborative BIM at DIT.

A number of engineering and technical staff have been trained in the use of BIM related analysis and 3D modelling software including Tekla Structures, Microdrainage WinDes and the Autodesk suite of products including Revit, Navisworks, Infraworks and Autocad Civils 3D. These personnel have gained experience in developing BIM models for recent projects, including co-ordinating and performing clash reviews with other design team member models.

The firm is developing our internal processes in line with the UK Level 2 BIM suite of standards. This includes focussing on the processes and documentation defined in BS1192, including file naming conventions and working in a Common Data Environment, and PAS1192-2, including drafting and completing Employer’s Information Requirements (EIR), BIM Execution Plans (BEP) and BIM Protocols.

T. J. O’Connor & Associates also have experience in drafting procurement documentation, including specifications, for 3D Point Cloud Surveying and subsequent BIM Modelling works, which deliver an important contribution to the Level 2 BIM process.

Senior staff represent the Association of Consulting Engineers of Ireland (ACEI) on the Construction IT Alliance (CITA)/BIM discussion groups which allows the firm to remain up-to-date with any developments in BIM.

Our personnel are involved in the Construction Industry Research and Information Association (CIRIA) in relation to BIM Protocol and its implementation in the industry.
