Metz believes that Architecture is about responding to the characteristics of the site and understanding the needs of the client, history, context, sustainability and economics. With Restoration an intervention might in one circumstance be a facsimile, in another contrasting, in both cases appropriate. Iconic should have its place, but not a norm. Metz have not adopted a ‘house style’, believing that the constraints and opportunities given on any particular site will engender the buildings own unique response in form, function and aesthetic.
Metz has been using BIM for a number of years and we like to think of ourselves as at the leading edge of understanding BIM amongst Construction Professionals. We therefore understand what architects and specifiers need from BIM’s (Building Information Models) and how the processes and protocols to deliver a project using BIM have evolved. Metz develop software solutions to enable BIM Content to interact with existing back of house data solutions or develop new solutions on a bespoke basis for clients who wish to develop broad structured data efficiencies across their business.
We are active members of BuildingSmart the International Alliance for Interoperability at the forefront of developing international standards for the common use of structured data.
