“Start with WHY” – Simon Sinek
Why do we do what we do?
The IGS Team of BIM Content Specialists, Technicians and Strategy Advisers are passionate about BIM and exploring the ways it can be utilised to achieve greater outcomes in developing the built environment. The true benefits of BIM and Design Technology will only be realised when all segments of the AEC community are able to contribute their combined resources, knowledge and ingenuity. IGS is a specialist in facilitating the BIM contribution of Building Product Manufacturers (BPM’s). We enjoy helping BPM’s improve their business by leveraging our expertise in BIM and Design Technology.
Why the focus on BIM content for Manufacturers?
Our interest in manufacturer’s BIM content is derived from personally working with Building Product Manufacturers in the past and experiencing firsthand the substandard BIM content creation and advice being provided by (some) other BIM content ‘specialists’.
Whilst BPM’s have great intentions, they often invest in BIM content that turns out to be useless to designers. This means that the manufacturer has effectively wasted their money, designers are devoid of content they can utilise and the AEC industry’s ability to derive maximum benefit from BIM technologies and workflows is significantly stifled. This in turn impacts industry productivity and the broader economy.
Drawing on our passion for BIM and Design Technology, and combining our collective skills, experience and networks we are able to provide maximum value to our clients and to our industry as a whole… and have a lot of great fun in the process.
What Are People Saying About Us?
“To produce quality BIM content requires high levels of skill, ingenuity and vision in the areas of data management, software knowledge and construction knowledge…. IGS understand this and as a result, they are industry leaders. Their content is of high quality, well researched, and adds value to the design professional, the product manufacturer / supplier who have invested in it, and the industry as a whole.”
“In seeking a BIM solutions provider, Dulux sought advice from experts within the design community and IGS was recommended by a number of industry leaders… From the outset, IGS understood our intention to go beyond just creating ‘BIM paint files’ and break new ground in how colour and paint could be incorporated into projects using BIM authoring software… Importantly, IGS was able to produce a well thought out and costed scope of works with clear milestones and timelines… IGS have been an attentive, enthusiastic partner and on hand to provide advice and support where needed. We would highly recommend IGS as a creator of BIM solutions and BIM strategy to others, as we have already done on a number of occasions.”
BIM Development & Commercial Specification Manager
“Unfortunately it is difficult for manufacturers to distinguish good content from bad Revit/BIM content… I believe that any client that chooses to have IGS make their Revit/BIM content would receive content that would meet this essential benchmark. In my experience (IGS) have proven to be very passionate individuals who have committed themselves to going beyond current industry standards and are helping raise the bar in the service that manufacturers are entitled to expect within this industry.”
Michelle Van Kolck
“Our specification frequency is experiencing constant growth and our reputation as an industry leader has never been greater. We consider our partnership with IGS to be a key aspect of our sales and marketing strategy. I’d highly recommend IGS as a BIM content creation and strategy provider to any manufacturer seeking to increase its specification sales within the commercial projects market.”
National Sales Manager
“Hassell engaged IGS to reconfigure and QA a substantial library of Revit families so they could be incorporated into a project model for a large healthcare project we were working on… IGS not only completed the work according to the project brief within the challenging project timelines, but also raised and rectified a number of additional inconsistencies and errors with numerous families, outside the project scope which was greatly appreciated. We would gladly work with IGS again in the future.”
Craig Howell Jones
UK Group BIM Coordinator
“IGS was recommended by several Architecture firms as the best BIM content provider in the business. To date, working with the IGS team has been a pleasure. The quality of their service has been outstanding. The feedback we have received from clients about our BIM content so far has been extremely favourable. By having BIM content freely available for our products in Revit, ArchiCAD and SketchUp formats, designers are able to document our products faster and more accurately, meaning we are specified more often. We would definitely recommend IGS to other companies seeking a BIM content provider.”
“Unlike many BIM content creators, IGS has an intimate understanding of what elements are critical to ensuring the Revit families they create can be easily used by project designers and work well in a project model environment. I see IGS as the industry leader in their field and I would highly recommend them as a provider of Revit content to manufacturers that want to ensure they are investing in the best possible Revit library for their products.”
