Utilizing BIM during construction allows pbGROUP to closely track and manage our Client's projects with a high level of quality assurance and quality control.  Furthermore, it allows the Client to be assured that the model is an accurate virtual representation of the built environment, which is critical for facility management.

The use of BIM in construction has many benefits.  Through early coordination and conflict detection, BIM + fabrication drawings can solve up to 85% of the field RFI issues.  Fully-coordinated and dimensioned shop drawings (generated from the design model) and models (generated specifically for shop and fabrication drawings) can cut field installation time by 25%.  Using the fabrication drawings to generate a bill of materials for each discipline can reduce material overages and save on material waste.

Construction Phase BIM Integration includes:
  • Construction Sequencing & Phasing Studies
  • Shop Fabrication Detailing 
  • Validation of the Contractor's Record Model 
  • Record Drawing Modeling
  • Close-Out Documentation & Information Linkage to BIM Models & Documents
  • INTERACTIVE PDF Documentation - Design, Construction & Close-Out Documentation
  • Laser Scan Point Cloud Model Development
  • Seismic Hanger - Design, Detailing and Scheduling
