BIM

Whilst there is no one absolute definition of BIM (building information modelling), it is widely referred to as an aggregation of technologies and processes which provides a collaborative data repository for all project members. Mandated by the UK government that all centrally-funded construction and engineering work undertaken must conform to BIM level 2 by Spring 2016, Lucion are further aligned to support the latest developments in achieving independent certification to the BIM Standard PAS 1192-2: 2013, in line with the Level 2 framework.

What are the benefits?

By enabling both simple and complex hazardous facilities to be mapped and presented in highly interactive and visual 2D or 3D environments, risks such as asbestos, fire and safety are geo-referenced as intelligent icons.  Through embedding ‘street view’ style 360 panoramic images, the software aims to reduce human error, eliminating the risk of mistakes made with traditional paper-based plans and subsequent problems associated with the inspection of buildings.

BIM will promote greater transparency and collaboration between suppliers, helping to quickly identify potential issues throughout a project’s lifecycle. This in turn will decrease wastage across procurement, processes and materials while moving the industry forward in terms of efficiencies and technological advancement.

How does it work?

Lucion have developed an innovative new app to directly connect building plans and drawings with data from asbestos surveys and laboratory analysis information.

The new software will present users with a 3D image of a building, including floor by floor and room by room representations allowing users and surveyors to flag-up the presence of asbestos or other safety hazards more accurately and efficiently.

Lucion’s current NexGen BIM database already allows users to access asbestos and building safety information including site survey reports and historical data. Linking this to the 3D visualisation of sites, buildings and individual rooms will bring new levels of detail for more accurate risk management considerations.

Marine

Hazardous material management on board marine vessels is now one of the most complex growing requirements for maritime operators across the globe.

With the international gaze firmly focused on the health and safety of maritime workers, and the protection of the environment, ship owners can not afford to have the topic of hazardous materials mismanaged, and the requirement for competent specialists is considered by most to be mandatory.

With our internationally recognised accredited laboratories, Lucion Marine have been servicing the global marine industry for the past ten years. We offer trusted hazardous material management to marine and offshore platforms and vessels, assisting in the compliance of SOLAS, the Hong Kong Convention and the EU Ship Recycling Regulations.
