What is

Building Information Modeling

The official definition:
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. A BIM is a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility, forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle; defined as existing from earliest conception to demolition.

At Comhar Design we specialise in supporting pharmaceutical building owners adapt to the new age of smart buildings & new technology, helping them to adapt to Building Information Modelling, to understand the vast amount of information associated with a virtual building and help their teams to adapt to working in a virtual world, all adhering with GMP compliance.

Market research - BIM

Global Building Information Modelling (BIM) Market is expected to garner $11.7 billion by 2022, registering a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 21.6% during the
forecast period of 2016 - 2022.

Facts and Figures

Problems building owners face

Major capital programs fail to meet cost and schedule targets 60%
Poor use of data costs the US capital facilities industry $15.8 billion annually 100%
Rework Construction Cost 30%
Maintenance remains reactive 55%
Why Our



We can merge all of your drawings, documents and models into one easy to manage solution. We can also link your drawings, documents and models to maintenance management systems for integrated maintenance.


Creating a BIM can be a challenge, we have created a very straightforward solution that can be tailored to suit your business needs and your budget. We can develop our Common Data Environment (CDE) and ensure proper integration and implementation of the CDE across all platforms & teams. This is incorporated into the standard operating procedure (SOP) we use or we can help incorporate it into an SOP that you already have in place.


A completely integrated system of information that we can manage and maintain for you, further reducing your costs and overheads. We work hand in hand with your
teams to create the best possible solution, ensuring all information that is linked is done so within a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) process.

Using BIM

owners can

Improve building quality

Significantly reduce building lifecycle costs

Better understand design projects from beginning to end

Optimize operational efficiencies

Increase occupancy and use rates

What Does
BIM Mean For Pharma?

Pharmaceutical buildings, cleanrooms, and laboratories pose a myriad of challenges compared to less specialised structures, both for construction and ongoing maintenance. With working parts built into the structure of a room, and the strong potential for clashes, BIM is the ideal approach.

BIM can help reduce costs in construction, retrofitting and maintenance. Comhar Design specialise in applying BIM in the pharmaceutical industry. Get in touch with us today to find out what we can offer.

What Does
BIM Mean For Facility Management?

Better information about existing conditions reduces the cost and complexity of building renovation and retrofit projects. BIM can help streamline change management. Facility managers can use the BIM model to scenario plan and configure space more efficiently.

BIM can also help identify conflicts when space requirements or purposes change. The Information about building equipment stored in BIM models can eliminate months of effort to accurately populate maintenance systems.

The UK government is actively introducing BIM policies that aim at saving up to 15% to 20% on all public construction projects.
