LEAN & BIM

Core to the success of each division of the Tim Kelly Group is maintaining the highest quality standards across all business activities. The team at Tim Kelly Group adopt an integrated Quality, Health & Safety and Lean Management System (IMS) to ensure product and service quality continues to meet the highest quality industry standards to exceed our client expectations.

LEAN Construction

Tim Kelly Group use lean construction techniques such as Last-Planner, Seven Waster Elimination, and 5S Workplace Organisation to obtain the highest possible levels of safety 7 productivity.

We are proud to be one of the first companies to receive accreditation for company lean practitioners by the Royal Statistical Society.

All members of our Operational Team, for example, Project Managers, have completed training to become Lean Practitioners. As a result, the Lean Philosophy is integrated into our business culture and day to day operations. By adopting the Lean Construction approach it ensures quality standards continue to meet the highest industry standards.

This management system also ensures business processes are continually improved so that services are provided are:

  • Environmentally responsible and protective
  • Carried out to the highest safety standards

 

Building Information Modeling (BIM)

In addition to applying the LEAN Construction approach to maintain the highest possible standards on behalf of our clients, we also use Building Information Modeling (BIM). BIM enables us to enhance the management of construction through simulation within a 3D virtual environment.

 

Tim Kelly Group utilised BIM tools for the first time in 2015, it has now become part of our standard practice. BIM represents new technologies and a new collaborative approach to implement construction projects. It unearths a vast amount of benefits through the utilisation of BIM tools allowing Tim Kelly Group to provide better value to our clients through better use of our knowledge and expertise.

All our in-house practices and procedures are developed in line with PAS 1192- 2 standards to demonstrate that we can deliver projects utilising Building Information Modelling (BIM) to BIM level 2 standard.

Once a project is ready to begin, we would conduct a kick-off meeting that would involve the engagement of the project team which includes project managers, engineers and BIM team. The task team manager on the job would run through the model highlighting areas that may be of concern and giving all project stakeholders a general feel for the project. This ensures a better understanding of space, plantroom areas and risers.

As we work through a model from the design phase we generally look at booking a space and prooving the design at LOD 3 within the given spaces provided. Following this, we further develop the model engaging with other project stakeholders to coordinate the model MEP services to up to LOD 4. The team may continue to enhance the model with the installation of brackets and supports, this is project dependent.

Points from the model are provided on-site to ensure that the information is transferred from the model to the floor. This is dependent on the project delivery, as each area is completed the area will be scanned and the model compared as build condition to ensure compliance. 

Tim Kelly Group currently has a team of 4 BIM Modellers, a number of these are enrolled in DIT Bolton Street studying for an MSc in Applied Business Information Modelling and Management.
