3rd Party BIM Model Auditing



During the course of any project, it is always sound thinking to verify the consistency of the information contained within a Building Information Model (BIM). Failure to audit the BIM will undoubtedly result in unreliable output data and, by extension, generate false reports.

To obtain trustworthy output from BIM, all documentation must be constructed while respecting certain practices, standards, and Levels of Development (LOD). Output includes Construction Documents, Constructability Analysis, 3D Coordination, Bills of Materials, 6D Facility Management models. It’s good practice to have an objective third party validate all BIMs developed at key points throughout a project.

Steps





1. Document Review


2. Model integrity & accuracy verification aganist the design intent


3. Design confirmation & Validation


4. Review of LOD aganist scope of objective & design function


5. Check model conformity with the generated 2D drawings


6. Model checking auditing (Space)


7. Clash Audit

BIM Modeling



The foundation BIM Engineering US services begin with our superior quality modeling expertise. We bring complete Autodesk® REVIT, Autodesk® Fabrication CADmep and Bentley BIM (AECOsim expertise) to the table for all disciplines: Architectural, Structural, Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Protection. Our key strength is our customer-centric approach, allowing us to develop long-term business relationships with our clients.

Building Information Modeling is our central focus in design and constructability analysis. Our team consists of architects, engineers, trade specialists and other highly skilled professionals who can design BIMs from scratch or convert 2D drawings into 3D models with real construction experience.

Construction Drawings



From the 3D model, BIM Engineering US’ skilled team of architects, engineers, and modelers are able to accurately and efficiently generate a high quality set of Permit, Construction, and/or Fabrication plans, taking advantage of the true BIM parametric efficiencies. BIM Engineering US fully engages with its clients throughout the entire design process, becoming an extension of the client’s production teams. In addition to specific modeling standards, we have established extensive Quality Control and Quality Assurance verifications for all of our BIM Engineering US projects.

We provide all pertinent information for the construction project by developing and maintaining the project’s geometry, spatial relationship quantities, geographic information, and component properties.

3d Virtual Visualization


3D Virtual Visualization is used create and manage 3D virtual models of a construction project even before it is built. It encapsulates multiple elements like architecture, mechanical, and structure. Our real-time model encapsulates building data through the complete lifecycle of the facility right from design, construction and facility operations & management. Our skilled visualization experts create virtual visualizations for Architecture, Structure, and MEP assets.

We render high-quality 3D Virtual Visualization Services for design, clash detection, fabrication & as-built models, starting from LOD 200 to LOD 500 for engineers, general contractors & builders. We, at BIMENGUS deliver top class services with the most skilled team in the AEC industry.

As-Built Modeling / Project Close-out



BIM Engineering US has an efficient process to capture all changes that take place during construction. By utilizing As-Built drawings and/or sub-contractor mark-ups, BIM Engineering US incorporates the information into the BIM to generate As-Built models.

Project Close-Out can be difficult for General Contractors when the required information is inaccessible or misplaced. We build the BIM and link all design data, cut-sheet data, and field changes for Close-Out. Additionally, when a 6D Facility Management solution is planned at a later stage, BIM Engineering US will integrate all necessary metadata of the model for future use

On-site BIM Support



Technology has recently made the exchange of information between different locations much simpler. Coordination Meetings represent an essential process that allows teams to resolve clashes before they are identified in the field. Effective meetings can save (depending on project size) hundreds of thousands of dollars, increasing profitability to all contracting teams.

These meetings can be effectively conducted using web-based collaboration tools, saving time and money for all involved. BIM Engineering US is able to instruct team leaders in the oversight of Coordination Meetings, or use our expertise to lead the meetings outright.

BIM Coordination



One of the most important goals of the utilization of BIM is the physical coordination of systems between disciplines, along with efficient and proper installation in the field. The BIM Engineering US BIM Coordination process involves Clash Detection reports, Constructability reviews, virtual and/or personal Coordination meetings with architects, engineers, consultants, construction manager(s) and sub-contractors. BIM Engineering US is fully capable of organizing and running the Coordination phase of a construction project. We already have led modeling and coordination efforts on dozens of multi-million sf. projects.

Individual project schedules, Gantt charts, email alerts, documentation hosting, RFI logs, and project specific group contact lists are all smoothly integrated into one easy to use, easy to access site.

In order to further assist, we can assign one or more of our BIM professionals to your design team for the duration of your project. Our BIM professionals will help in your office or in the field, while the rest of the team at BIM Engineering US guides you from our offices.

Clash Detection



Once the BIM Models for all disciplines are accurately created, BIM Engineering US performs Clash Detection and generates customized Building Conflict Reports (BCR). Our staff works together with architects, engineers, general contractors, and various trades to detect and resolve the design conflicts among construction elements before construction dollars are ever spent.

The coordination meetings are run, and BCRs are produced, using Autodesk® Navisworks Manage® Software. This software is the industry standard for precise collision detection and clash reports. Multiple CAD and/or BIM platforms can be imported into a single file, stripping down the base geometry to keep the file lightweight. We upload each BCR by trade for all parties to see, then document the issues and update the project schedules. We also supply hardware and software where a turnkey solution is necessary.

Procurement & QTD



Accurate quantification of building components is a constant necessity during the design and construction phases of any project. BIM Engineering US assists during the Procurement process by providing QTOs generated from the BIM. Accurate comparative data, combined with optional studies and/or phasing, can be a powerful tool in maintaining and optimizing efficiencies. BIM Engineering US collaborates with our clients to maximize the value of a model toward these tasks.

4d Scheduling


Complex site logistics and installation phasing are some of many potential applications for visualization. Graphic representations, created to understand time-based processes, helps foresee conflicts and study potential solutions. 4D adds the time factor of the construction schedule to the 3D model. We can directly link each activity of a Gantt chart (generated in project management software such as Primavera or Microsoft Project) to the BIM.

These animated models represent the planned construction sequence set against time. The main purpose of a construction phasing simulation is to provide a tool that will help the construction team visualize logistical issues or inefficiencies. The simulation exposes details such as out-of-sequence work, scheduling conflicts between

BIM for Prefabrication & Fabrication


Preparing a building component or assembly for fabrication is a time consuming process that depends on numerous complex factors. BIM facilitates a variety of related design/construction activities, including digital fabrication and Shop drawings of building components. BIM enables digital design-to-fabrication workflows for all building disciplines.

Our engineering team has many years of experience producing accurate Shop and Fabrication drawings across multiple trades, including Structural, MEP, and Civil.


Using coordinated models, critical and complex runs were prefabricated off site to increase efficiency and quality.
