OFFERING EXPERIENCED U.S. BASED REVIT BIM MODELING AND AUTOCAD DRAFTING CONSULTING SERVICES
Modeling, Coordination, Clash Clearing, Shop Drawings, and Spooling Drawing Services
Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing
REVIT BIM MODELING, COORDINATION, CLASH CLEARING, SHOP AND SPOOL DRAWING SERVICES: LOD 300, 350, AND 400
Architectural, Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Protection trades that need their discipline BIM modeled, coordinated, and clash cleared against other trades to develop approved shop drawings required for installation. Shop Drawings can be further developed into spooling drawings and fabrication detailing to include Quantity Take-Offs (QTO), through to including as-builts often required at project close-out that are required by owners and facility management departments.
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 within budget.
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. Unfortunately, at the job site, these were often found much later 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 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, 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 act as a very accurate assembly instruction for trades to match. This requires less site time and investigation than 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 fabrication modeling and drawings used to fabricate and develop off-site sub-assemblies on the ground at trade shops drawings, 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.
