REVIT MODELING, COORDINATION, SHOP DRAWINGS, AS-BUILT SERVICES AND SOLUTIONS
Architectural, Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Fire Protection and other construction trades requiring modeling, coordination, clash clearing and shop drawings needed by sub-trades for their approval and installation purposes.
For Construction projects needing BIM implementation from the concept and design phases to coordination modeling from CD’s that are clash cleared against other trades to the development of Shop Drawings that can be further advanced in development for Fabrication models to support trades in their off-site fabrication efforts can include Quantity Take-Offs (QTO), with as-built model and, while also offering data-rich parametric model recording of equipment and devices that are typically beneficial to the building facility maintenance and management departments.
For construction projects requiring BIM implementation we provide a full range of services from concept to design modeling while also offering advance BIM models to raise its development to match the Construction Documents (CD) from bid documents or further advance to depicting and coordination of disciplines to include the selected sub-trades actual selected and approved device submittal depiction level that would be coordinated and further clash cleared in a federated model against all other construction trades through to providing Shop Installation Drawings or further advanced fabrication based models used for coordination, fabrication, quantity take-offs, logistical staging, total station locating for all build connective hangers, strapping, all thread, seismic, etc. through to including post-construction as-built updates and lastly, if required typically by the owners to raise the entire model to a complete data model set that will hold critical information about the equipment and devices installed, which is very beneficial for the building’s facility management and maintenance departments use of the buildings finished construction information.
With Revit, we can model, document, visualize building and construction related projects of any size or complexity. With proven Revit technology, we can confidently take on any design, construction, or operations project. No matter what design information you are working with or what kind of deliverables are required, we can rely on Revit’s flexibility and power to get the job done on time and budget.
The Revit family of products provides traditional CAD and Modeling capabilities and the power and versatility to precisely model, document, and visualize information-rich 2D and 3D designs of all types and scales, working for professionals in every discipline on projects of every type.

We are dedicated to meeting project goals, committed to developing long-lasting business relationships by providing excellent customer service.
The spark for the switching from a 2D computer-aided design (CAD) process to BIM was the construction industry’s acknowledgment that there were substantial savings found by virtual modeling and coordinating construction. The old school 2D process could not thoroughly find, address, and identify all unforeseen or complex, dense overlapping trade congested areas routing situations. These were instead unfortunately often found much later, at the job site by the trade installers who then needed to apply unique and inefficient site-based solutions. This causes site tension between trade installation teams. These trades are already stressed to meet construction deadlines. Then finger-pointing between trades could happen that virtual coordination upfront could have eliminated. An immediate reactionary solution needs to be thought up that was often uniquely implemented and might require rerouting of already installed items. These on the spot hand-tailored adjustments vs. pre-construction virtual reviews could have been studied, routed, and re-coordinated virtually long before the construction process to create an entire clash cleared construction model. This is especially true when applying virtual 3D model rotations abilities and BIM software-based features that can automatically identify hard to see clashes that need to be resolved. Therefore, in summary, the overall trade installation experience becomes virtually simplified, and a less stressful work environment. This is true because of the 3D models with an associated shop drawing acts as a very accurate assembly instruction for trades to match. This requires less site time and investigation that was previously required in the 2D coordination only method. The field routing and coordination rework, tear-outs, and re-sequencing of trades found significant benefit from the addition of BIM applied upfront and for fabrication modeling and drawings used to fabricate and develop off-site sub-assemblies on the ground at trade shops further boosting the site installing construction efficiency. Also, additional quantities take-offs using BIM provides for significant cost savings benefits. These are just a few of the most apparent benefits of implementing BIM today.
BIM’S 2020 OUTLOOK
In 2020, there has been an impassioned plea to lawmakers who will soon be reviewing a $1 trillion infrastructure initiative. The benefits of incorporating BIM into the plan and being able to build a project first on a computer screen, eliminating conflicts and questions before it becomes expensive and time-consuming fixes out in the field.
These advantages are particularly obvious in the U.S. based infrastructure initiative, which is expected to require at least a $200 billion direct federal spend.
However, the unveiling of this infrastructure plan draws closer, there are a few key BIM-related questions that policymakers must address. Two key questions are how is the nation going to best use its dollars and resources, and how it will BIM fit into that equation?
Our mission is to create long-lasting relationships with our clients. We believe by leveraging the integration of the newest technology and keeping a vigilant eye on the evolving CAD/BIM principles; we will help support the building and manufacturing industry to improve business practices that enable excellence in communications and collaboration.
