BIM / Virtual Design Management

Using virtual skills to optimize and revolutionize your project

The rise of 3D to 6D Building Information Modelling and Virtual Construction has revolutionized the way we are able to work.

Thanks to our years of regional experience in contractor led design-build projects, we can help you optimize all your BIM procedures. By cutting out the need for mountains of paperwork and design guesswork, this high tech approach will ensure the project you and your clients visualize is exactly what you will get, saving you precious time and money in the process.

Why BIM / Virtual Design Management is so important

Bringing a project’s vision to life is no easy task. Before the days of BIM and Virtual Construction, decisions that looked perfect on paper often needed correction on the construction site itself, resulting in the waste of materials - not to mention, time and money. There are huge benefits to helping you, as a contractor, optimize BIM and Virtual Construction procedures on your project. Not only does it help you and your client visualize exactly how the development will look and perform, it allows for changes and decisions to be made before a brick is even laid down.

The use of 3D BIM in developments has become so important that the UK government has deemed all its projects must meet a minimum level of “collaborative 3D BIM.” Dubai has also followed suit, mandating BIM on most of its governmental projects. What this means for you as a contractor is a faster, more cost effective, high performing project that will surpass you and your client’s expectations.

Our Approach to BIM / Virtual Design Management

Our years of regional experience in working with contractors on design and construction projects means we can meet even the most complex of challenges. Our priority is firstly to fully understand the vision for the development, and to partner with you so that we can model and co-ordinate the entire project with accuracy, ease and efficiency.

This partnership approach has seen us build strong and long lasting relationships with experts just like you. From VDC professionals to architects, engineers and BIM modellers, we have worked together to seamlessly handle everything from high end commercial towers to major airport developments.

The BIM Process, uncovered and explained in detail by Alpin Limited Masdar City. For BIM Level 2, BS1192, PAS1192 and ISO19650. Find out how Alpin can help you adapt your development practices to a changing market and to adopt best practices in BIM. It is one of our core services and clients have engaged our experts to implement BIM both at a corporate level and also on projects ranging from airports to metros to hospitals.

Our BIM Services

Building Information Modelling

BIM is a highly intelligent process that helps us virtually plan, design, construct and manage your entire project. Converting 2D drawings to high end 3D models gives everyone involved much more insight and transparency into the costs, materials and time required - right from the very start.

BIM Model and Information Management

Our BIM team has years of experience in setting up and implementing high end BIM Execution and Management Plans that are guaranteed to deliver your project’s requirements.

Process Mapping

Behind every successful VDC project is a clearly defined plan. Our experts can help you create a blueprint for the right processes and practices to ensure the entire process runs smoothly and effectively.


4D Schedule Simulation gives us the power to ‘walk through’ the entire construction process and pin-point and overcome any potential risks - long before the first brick is even laid down on site.


We offer complete 5D model solutions, which can reveal a wealth of real time information about the cost effectiveness of your project. Our detailed 5D schedule simulations will show you exactly how changes to your project will affect your budgets and overall construction schedules. You’ll be able to approach the model with different scenarios and questions and instantly see these will impact your costs and timings, helping to maximize your project’s productivity.


Once your construction project is complete, we can deliver a 6D model – an “as-built” BIM model that is packed full of information directly relevant to the operation phase of your building. This model can be used to model and evaluate energy efficiency, monitor your project’s life cycle and maximize its overall cost efficiency.

Change Management

There is no doubt that VDC is revolutionizing the way our industry works. We also know that embracing change and new technology isn’t always easy and that the human aspect is sometimes forgotten. That’s why we offer our own change management consulting to help you personally get up to speed with a more high tech way of working.

Facilities Management

Trust Alpin to use the latest BIM technology to deliver structured data and information and an accurate as-built BIM model to assist you with managing your built environment.

“Alpin were not only able to provide the skilled personnel that the complexity of the project demanded but they were also able to advise us on the use and capabilities of the software. Through this they demonstrated a true understanding of the project requirements and challenges that we would face.”
