Let’s talk tech for a moment. Fear not, we’ve made it easy to understand.
Big-D uses a variety of programs for creating BIM’s. Each project is different so the tools we use vary depending upon the needs of the project. None of that risky one-size-fits-all stuff, not on your life.
The programs we use for creating models include fancy names like Google SketchUp, DProfiler, Revit and ArchiCad. We use Vico and NavisWorks to analyze, sequence and coordinate the models. Frankly, there’s no such thing as too much technology when you’re in the midst of a major project.
Here’s why. BIM proves useful on a project for:
Conceptual views of the project through various phases of construction can show any conflicts prior to construction. The obvious benefit is the ability to manage possible problems before conflict occurs, which is another way of saying, “saves you money.”
