Building Information Modeling
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the creation and coordination of 3-dimensional (3D) models used to simulate the construction and operation of a facility. The resulting model is a data rich, object-orientated, intelligent and parametric digital representation of a facility, from which views and data appropriate to various users’ needs can be extracted and analyzed to generate information that can be used to make decisions and improve the process of delivering the facility.
We have set a goal to become the leading BIM Contractor within small construction firms. Having the capability to incorporate BIM coordination on any given project is a great benefit to all trades involved. We have proven skills in this new technology and continue to invest in future technologies.
BIM has many advantages in today’s AEC Industry.
Among the many competitive advantages include:
- Increased speed of delivered project
- Better coordination (reduced errors in design, fabrication and construction)
- Increased efficiency and coordination among owners, architects, general contractors and trades
- Decreased cost
- Greater productivity
- Improved quality control
- Competitive edge acquiring business
We utilize the latest design software to remain current with the latest technologies.
We currently utilize:
- Autocad MEP 2014
- Revit MEP 2014
- Navisworks 2014
- Trimble Pipe Designer 14.0v1
- Trimble Duct Designer 14.0v1
- Trimble Total Station Field Link 14.0v1
Extending BIM to the Field
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is now integrated into the construction process by extending the design model data to field crews via the Trimble Robotic Total Station. This workflow integration provides a significant opportunity to improve our construction techniques by improving layout processes of our mechanical systems which in turn increases productivity and accuracy.
