Architecture : Overview

Vincent and Gorbing’s commercial sector expertise encompasses office and industrial developments, leisure & education buildings, public sector buildings and interior design. The practice places great emphasis on designing architecture of high quality, an approach which has resulted in a significant media profile and industry recognition. We also have extensive residential design experience in both the public and private sectors.

Many residential projects are mixed tenure in nature, with the provision of rented, intermediate rent and shared ownership homes, as well as open market units. Student and NHS staff accommodation blocks have also been completed in recent years. Private sector housing design work ranges from the preparation of detailed housing layouts for volume house builders to high specification apartment blocks for leading regional developers.

Bim and the future of AEC

BIM (Building Information Modelling) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure. BIM focuses on the flow and control of electronic information between disciplines to improve coordination of the design process, reduce on-site issues and subsequently mitigate the programme delays that might ensue.

As a practice, Vincent & Gorbing undertake all our design information using Building Information Modelling (BIM) software. Throughout the design process we employ various 3D modelling and visualising software packages to produce photo-realistic and panoramic images in conjunction with the formal primary building model being developed in the industry-leading AutoDesk Revit. This strategy allows us to produce collaborative information in an Industry Foundation Class (IFC) format which can be used by many forms of software and meets the requirements of the relevant legislation within PAS 1192.

We offer a range of services tailored to suit a client’s particular requirements, from a feasibility study to a full design service, or just a simple planning report.
