BIM Revit

Integrated Project Delivery is an approach that integrates people, systems, business structures and practices into a collaborative process. This process utilizes the talents and insights of all participants to reduce waste and optimize efficiency through all phases of design and construction.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a virtual design tool that makes Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) possible through effective collaboration and communication in the design and construction process. It allows design and construction disciplines to contribute diverse expertise in order to achieve owner goals in a virtual model prior to physical construction. Using BIM helps to ensure the building is cost effective by providing quantification metrics, reducing errors and unknown design conditions, and resolving construction conflicts. BIM is by nature an excellent tool for the collaborative process of design, delivery, and communication of architecture.

Our design team is forced to coordinate the full layout of every piece of mechanical equipment, piping, electrical lighting, structural beams and floor penetration in the building BEFORE it goes out for pricing. 

Day lighting analysis allows us to reduce the amount of light fixtures in the building, saving on initial cost as well as life-cycle energy use.

Heat load analysis takes into account solar exposure, glass type and interior surface absorption.  Mechanical systems can then be sized appropriately.

Specifications can be extracted directly from the model based on actual intelligent components.

Cost Estimates are more accurately assessed as the team can pull quantities of materials directly from the model and cross check them with quantities suggested by material suppliers.

Coordination with the construction team results in never needing to guess what is intended.
