Definition and Benefits
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.
These are just a few of the benefits of our Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) Services:
- As-built accuracy
- Collaborate & Communicate clearly
- With 3D Coordination, find 90-95% of problems before you build
- Reduce rework, 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 for Missing Scope
- Project Kick-Start Services
- Creation of BIM Deliverables for
- Architectural, Structural and MEP
- Business Development Support
- Staff Augmentation
- Consulting Services
- Commercial – Office
- Commercial – Retail
- Fire Protection
- Site Utilities
Getting started with VDC at BuildingPoint is simplified in three easy steps.
Step 1. Submit A Services Request.
Request a personalized estimate or consultation. Simply contact your local BuildingPoint team member.
Step 2. Receive A Quote.
BuildingPoint will then create a customized scope of work and estimate that precisely addresses your VDC requirements.
Step 3. Build.
With a scope of work and cost proposal in hand, you’ll have everything you need to get started with BuildingPoint VDC Services. Your dedicated Project Manager will work with you to create a project schedule, milestones, and deliverables that fit into your existing process and construction schedule.
BuildingPoint’s laser scanning services are available on both a project-based or time/materials basis, allowing you to customize our service to your specific budget and scope of work.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) offers significant visualization and communication insights in the Preconstruction phase of your project. By using BIM during the preconstruction phase, in conjunction with our estimating, scheduling & planning capabilities, we can optimize the project’s design, construction, operation and quality and save you time and money – adding value at every step of a project’s lifespan.
The principal use of VDC during construction is in the coordination of building systems. By creating accurate models of each of these systems, we are able to run clash detection routines that find every clash between objects and determine the best solution to minimize delayed schedule and added cost.
