Our BIM consulting services gives designers and engineers the ability to work faster and more efficiently during documenting and designing a building. Combining 3D modeling with 2D drafting, we are witnessing a new standard of practice for coordinated design and project management. Most design firms have begun implementing BIM software such as Autodesk Revit and ArchiCAD, but it is becoming a burden and expense to train employees while still maintaining a profitable business. In a time of change, we embrace BIM as the new how for design documentation.
In Revit, the 3D virtual environment allows designers to build buildings, not draw lines. Not to say that basic drafting standards aren’t needed, Revit forces CAD enthusiasts to think of “drafting” as building. It makes everything within the virtual world become a component of a building. Bricks are bricks, walls are walls, and these objects become quantifiable.
The power of BIM utilizing Revit keeps a project together in one file, so when a change occurs – it occurs everywhere. This saves time and reduces inconsistencies. The “Information” aspect of BIM is where we achieve a lot more ability than conventional software. Inserting cost parameters and recording take-offs are at the surface of potential, along with numerous other benefits.
Since we are “modelers” and not “drafts-people”, we can design and refine in three dimensions. This makes it very easy for our client to interact and give constructive criticism of the design. We can make changes to the architectural environment in a 3D iterative process.
The integration of project estimation, scheduling, in addition to 3D modeling to BIM takes the software beyond a drawing. BIM managers are able to detect clashes between trades, and in turn “build” the resolution. Clash detection and constructability reports are very common requests from our clients. We are able to help quantify materials within the building for bidding purposes before construction begins. The main export of BIM are powerful schedules for every component of the building. We can get very detailed in quanitifying the building or take a generic approach for window schedules, flooring, and exterior cladding materials.
