Amodal, a newly established business, is looking at challenging the existing routes to providing clients, including tier one contractors and major developers, with building information to provide a more efficient route to lifecycle, cost and asset management.
Information management service provider Amodal brings a fresh perspective to the way its clients can control and access their data. Utilising its characteristic Amodal vision, the company is aiming to deliver strategic foresight and building information lifecycle management to prepare its clients for today and the future.
Established in 2020, with a senior management team that has roots in tier one contracting and large assets owners with a focus on transformation and technology, Amodal offers a unique service model which enables the company to deliver clear, tangible outputs to its customers at every stage of the business information lifecycle.
Amodal adopts a slightly different approach to its competitors who typically offer traditional capital-funded solutions. With these methods, building information management can be eclipsed by the attention on forthcoming projects. But with service models, clear pathways to success can be made tangible and realised, with a continual service in place that ensures information management is never left behind.
Amodal is committed to forging long-term, collaborative relationships with its clients, preferring to execute smaller innovations at frequent, structured periods. Unlike traditional solutions which can be plagued with intangible deliveries, Amodal uses its agility to track and respond to change at specific intervals, as highlighted in a clear roadmap.
Speaking on what makes Amodal different to the status-quo, Michael Barber, Director and Co-founder says:
Managing information doesn’t have to be complicated or take a long time to make perfect. Creating a strong foundation (e.g. naming conventions), having good document control process and processing small changes can really make a difference. Other providers make the mistake of trying to boil the ocean. It’s too large a step change to quickly make, and we all know that people don’t like radical changes! Using our knowledge of best practices, we break it down to what will be of value to our clients, and deliver tangible outputs at specific milestones so this value can be seen.Michael Barber
Thomas Whiting, Managing Director at Amodal develops Michael’s point, adding:
When starting a new business, you want to avoid replicating what has been done. You should always look to improve the existing and offer something different. We aim to build a sustainable business by taking proven best practices from different sectors and applying them to the built environment to deliver new value. I believe change doesn’t have to always be a great leap onto uneven ground. Change can be small steps to make sure you are on the right path. It’s also important to be able to change direction if required without wasted effort.Thomas Whiting
Amodal’s unique service model means its clients are allowed access to its multi-skilled team, as opposed to a single consultant. This approach means clients can get in contact whenever there is a task at hand. It also makes budgeting and forecasting easier, with pre-agreed fixed costs for the service level required.
With its characteristic service model and collaborative, agile way of working, Amodal ensures its clients’ requirements are the focus every step of the way, ensuring there is no barrier to the retrieval of information regarding a built asset.
