Building Information Modelling for offshore wind projects: improving working methods and reducing costs

Published 13 June 2016

Building information modelling (BIM) is used across the architecture, engineering and construction sectors. Used in a team environment, a project developed using BIM delivers improved data sharing, reduced costs and greater whole life value. This Analysis Paper, by Owen Murphy, describes how new collaborative systems of working in similar industries deliver savings in both capital expenditure and operational expenditure project phases, and explores what potential these have to drive down costs in the offshore wind sector.
