Case Studies

Node is used by many companies to assist in their information management helping them deliver a consistent and quality building.

Galliford Try

Galliford Try have built an information portal for all divisions of the business over the past 3 years. They have a dedicated internal resource who maintain the library and train the project teams. The platform was deployed in its base form and then the Galliford Try and bimstore team worked together to configure the platform specifically for their needs. Over the past 3 years, the bimstore team have continued to support the Galliford Try team as they continue to develop the platform and collect more content.


Vistry Group

Vistry Homes, previously known as Bovis Homes, have developed over 100 standard house types which include manufacturer-specific content and 30 sheets per house type. All this information needs to be centrally managed so it can be kept up to date across all regions. The platform is managed by Space Architects on behalf of the Vistry team who have a strategy of outsourcing technical support. The Node library has ensured the new BIM houses are maintained and distributed consistently, reducing errors on site and improving quality.



bimstore have been working with Barratt for 7 years. A large percentage of the Barratt house types are hosted on Node to allow distribution to regions. As well as the house types, all manufacturer components are hosted on the platform. Within the Barratt supplier agreement, all manufacturer’s products must be hosted on bimstore.



Lidl have hosted their standard stores on Node for a number of years. They have a model store and specification which is distributed to the design team across the UK. The models are maintained on the site with a new upload every month. Each new release can then be downloaded by the regions and their design teams ensuring consistency of delivery.
