BIM objects of manufactured components to help support Skanska’s collaborative BIM process


Skanska UK has formed a strategic partnership with BIMobject (, in what is described as a significant step forward in its building information modelling (BIM) strategy. The partnership will enable more collaborative working between Skanska and its supply chain.

Malcolm Stagg, Head of BIM at Skanska UK, said: “This agreement helps us to further strengthen our position as a leader in BIM in the industry. It also demonstrates the importance we place on working collaboratively with our supply chain and other partners. BIMobject is a key component of our overall strategy to achieve this.”

“This initiative is another important step in moving towards fully collaborative processes with BIM. We are delighted to be able to contribute to making these processes work smoothly for Skanska and its supply chain”, commented Alan Baikie, Managing Director of BIMobject UK.

BIMobject creates and publishes digital replicas – BIM objects - of manufactured products, which include all the associated data required for the construction process. These can then be placed into a virtual version of a project that is developed using BIM processes and software.
