BIM: Adoption through Brandt’s Start-to-Finish BIM Coordination Services
Building information modeling (BIM) allows contractors, engineers and clients to see the completed building, inside out, before a shovel ever breaks ground. Brandt’s BIM Coordination Services use BIM throughout the design/build process to help us identify and solve problems, design for maximum usability of the completed installation, schedule building processes and understand potential maintenance issues to help you keep your new facility running optimally for years to come.
BIM Coordination Services: Putting the “Information” in BIM
For every option that an architect designs, a contractor knows there are multiple ways to achieve the desired effect with a range of equipment and materials. Our focus is on constructability – making sure the final product is well designed, well scheduled, cost effective and ready to complete on time. We use BIM technologies to facilitate organized, low-stress, budget-friendly project deliveries.
3D Constructible Models
Basic 3D models can only take the construction process so far. A fully 3D constructible model provides in-depth details about construction of each trade—helping contractors understand assembly and sub-assembly, and how every installation has an impact on other trades and components. Our BIM Coordination Services hinge on a well-designed, constructible model from the pre-design phase to final commissioning.
Why Use BIM Coordination Services?
Solid BIM provides these 3D constructible models to help owners realize savings and to increase job productivity and safety. This also provides clients a high level of insight and control over the construction process. Our design intent model segregates out exact details—electrical conduit, ductwork and fire sprinkler placement coordinated with the ceiling space, for example. This level of detail allows us to represent all the individual components that merge to form a completed project.
Construction methods, specifications and scheduling coordination are all facilitated with BIM—even coordination of subcontractors. Efficient constructability through BIM helps us manage our contractors, planning and managing construction activities under even highly stringent schedules. Our cost projections are some of the best in the business, and we have a reputation for finishing within budget. BIM keeps us “between the lines.”
