Virtual Design Construction & Building Information Modeling Services
What is BIM?
BIM (Building Information Model) is a process for creating and managing all of the information on a project – before, during and after construction. The output of the process is known as the Building Information Model. Our Virtual Design and Construction services cover the entire BIM spectrum, helping clients successfully deliver integrated projects. From 2D drawing comparisons to 3D modeling and coordination, 3D quantity takeoff to full 5D estimating, 4D schedule optimization to owner presentation materials and every step in between.
Key Benefits to VDC & BIM:
- As-built accuracy
- Collaboration and communication
- 3D Coordination allows for 90-95% of problem identification prior to construction
- Reductions in rewwork – scan field conditions into a 3D model and never return to the field!
- Accurate estimates and bids
- Add capacity per project or BIM needs without adding staff!
- 3D scanning
- Conceptual modeling
- 2D and 3D model conversion
- Model quality review
- 3D modeling from point clouds
- 3D modeling from missing scope
- Project kick-start services
