ECD appointed as BIM Consultants for BeFirst

August 15, 2019


We are delighted to confirm our appointment as BIM Consultants to BeFirst on a two-year consultancy agreement.

This consultancy support will enable BeFirst to utilise BIM on all projects and improve their ability to extract, manage, store and utilise building information on their current development pipeline, and ultimately their existing assets.

Starting with a pilot project of 26 homes ECD will support BeFirst in developing all necessary standards in line with BIM protocols. This work will include training of BeFirst staff in BIM Management to upskill their in-house development and asset management teams as part of a wider digital transformation.

Patrick King (Head of BIM) Associate Director at ECD Architects said: “We are very pleased to support BeFirst in their digital journey to transform the quality and consistency of their building information. BeFirst’s mission is to accelerate regeneration in Barking & Dagenham, so that no-one is left behind. In the same way this project is designed to ensure that no-one is left behind in the digital transformation of buildings. This project will be an important step towards achieving that goal and we are excited about the possibilities this appointment can deliver”.
