Building Information Modeling (BIM)

 
BIM is the ultimate 3D engineering and construction collaboration tool that maximizes facility functionality, decreases design time, reduces construction cost and schedule, and supports efficient O&M.
 

Pro2Serve uses Autodesk’s Revit® 2012 to design facilities in an integrated 3D Building Information Model.  With the use of the latest BIM technologies available, our team provides the highest level of physically-accurate detailed designs and coordinated documentation.

Collaboration among designers and all project stakeholders reduces design cost
  • Photo-realistic visual design early in the design process demonstrates project characteristics and facilitates open communication, mutual understanding, and proof of concept
  • Minimizes the number and complexity of design reviews and revisions
  • Fast-track early construction
Collaboration among design disciplines allows for optimal facility functionality and sustainability, reducing construction, energy, and long-term maintainability costs
  • Automatic clash detection reduces design cost and avoids costly construction change orders
  • Design Team’s focus shifts to maximizing efficient use of the facility volume within project cost objectives
  • Resulting design uses less square footage to meet functional requirements
Collaboration among designers and estimators improves accuracy and reduces time to prepare construction cost estimates
  • Automated quantity takeoffs facilitate efficient cost estimating earlier in the design process 
Collaboration among designers and constructors reduces construction costs by facilitating fast-track construction schedules and creative construction approaches
  • The design is transformed into a 3D strategic construction sequencing, planning, and execution tool
  • Maximizes coordination and scheduling of various trades
  • Feeds design requirements directly to operators in the field
Collaboration among user, owner, emergency responders, and master planners improves facility safety
and usability
  • Integrating with GIS, the completed BIM output provides an accurate model of the actual facility
  • Improves emergency response planning and execution
  • Allows master planners to strategize for functional consolidation, facility modernization, and change of function
