BIM Level 2 Verification

BIM Level 2 Verification

At Wallace Whittle, we pride ourselves on Quality of Product and Quality of Service.

Our Building Information Modelling (BIM) verification, is just one of the many ways we re-assure our clients that we have the in-house expertise to deliver BIM Level 2 projects, in compliance with the RIBA stages and industry standards.

Our experienced digital engineers utilise BIM from the early concept stages of projects, to visualise design intentions and make informed decisions. We use an in-house suite of standards, in conjunction with powerful BIM authoring software, to build our design within a 3D environment which we are then able to share with our design partners to provide the process with an efficient means of communicating information.

Our ability to work in this manner allows our design to be passed on to the construction phase adding value & support to such things as offsite project management, reducing abortive time on site and avoiding re-design resulting in waste materials.

Our experience integrating data into our models at the design phase provides our clients with the option to develop progressive operational data which assists with future aspects of the project, providing a full audit trail which lays the foundations for digital building asset management.

Paul Hargreaves, Associate Director and Paul Underhill, Associate BIM Technician took the lead on BIM, demonstrating our processes and procedures for the audit;

“Our BIM Level 2 verification as an appointed party, in compliance with ISO19650, provides our clients with re-assurance that their projects are in safe hands at Wallace Whittle. Receiving this verification with no non-conformities for the 6th year running, demonstrates the maturity of our capability and expertise of our team. Well done to everyone involved.” – Paul Hargreaves, Associate Director

Company Away Day 2022

Company Away Day 2022

Our Company Away Days are a couple of days of fun, relaxation and re-connection for our staff across our eight offices. After two years of home working and being behind screens, it was an important win for us to get everyone back together safely. We asked our staff to pack away laptops and stay off their phones to take a break and feel fully involved.

Arriving at Uddingston Cricket & Sports Club on day one, we welcomed staff with a delicious lunch and set out the plans for the next two days of fun and activities before heading out to the field for Cricket 7’s. Putting together groups with mixed roles, levels and disciplines allowed more opportunities for staff to meet others from different areas and really bond together as a team. That evening we mixed everyone up again for dinner and staff enjoyed the thrills of their own casino, posing for the photo booth, as well as enjoying some live music in the evening sunshine.

The start of day two focused on staff and business development sessions where we heard from Allan McGill, our Managing Director, about the focus and direction of the business, future plans and our growth post management buy-out, as well as development workshops on Quality & Standardisation from Associate Directors, Raymond Kelly and Paul Hargreaves. We ended the day back out on the field in the sunshine for our very own Crystal Maze. Mystery, mental, physical and skill challenges tested our communication and team work skills and the competition was fierce!

Staff feedback from the day has been incredibly positive and we’ve seen the value in taking this time for our staff, both in terms of time to switch off, but also in creating strong relationships between offices and departments.

We aim to be market-leading, providing benefits and training opportunities and investing in our staff. From learning and CPD opportunities with our Academy to providing our staff with access to healthcare and wellbeing support services. We give everyone an annual allowance to spend on branded clothing and accessories, support agile working and this year we’ve provided an end of Q1 cost of living bonus. We understand that investing in our staff is key to ensuring quality of life for them, and quality of service here at Wallace Whittle.

A huge thank you to Uddingston Cricket and Sport Club for hosting us and we can’t wait to see where next year takes us.
