BIM (Building Information Modeling) allows you to build and manage your projects more effectively. Using three dimensional, real-time, dynamic building modeling software to increase productivity in building design and construction, the process produces the Building Information Model.
Why use BIM?
In our continuous effort to find new and innovative ways to simplify our processes as well as our customers, CBC is able to provide BIM’s 3D modeling to our Builders, general contractors, engineers and architects thus giving us all an edge over the competition in the market. BIM will enable you the ability to see and display an exact image of your building before breaking ground and this copy can be used throughout the building’s lifecycle.
BIM will help provide enhanced communication to avoid any gaps between Builders, Owners, Architects, Engineers, and Contractors. Incorporating an Integrated Project Delivery System (IPD) will assist in facilitating collaborative decision-making, avoiding any issues in the early stages of development, before construction, virtually before any money is lost on the job site.
Avoid and resolve any issues before breaking ground. Design issues are easily addressed and can be modified early in the process, saving you time and money. With the BIM model, you will be able to identify any potential conflicts between architectural, structural, and MEP systems. This can all be done before your building is built!
