Building information modeling (BIM)

Is a process involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places. BIM is an intelligent model based process that provides insight to help you plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure. BMI is changing how buildings, infrastructure, and utilities are planned, designed, built, and managed.

LASER SCANNING

A “scan” is a powerful laser recording of field data that captures a site’s shapes and possibly its appearance and converts those conditions into a cloud of data points, which can be uploaded into a 3D BIM.

These 3D scans can perform a wide variety of functions, including:

  • Creating as-built drawings of bridges, buildings, and other structures.
  • Helping with site modeling and layout.
  • Acting as the “eye” of a jobsite robot.
  • Road topography surveying.
  • Roadway paving volume calculations.
  • Creating accurate 3D models of both the interior and exterior of existing buildings to aid in addition and renovation projects.

This technology is especially useful to us for project management, creating updated as-built drawings at various stages of the project. This helps us stay on track and avoid costly rework at the end of the build.

LEAN CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY

Is a combination of operational research and practical development in design and construction with an adaption of lean manufacturing principles and practices to the end-to-end design and the entire construction process. Unlike manufacturing, construction is a project based-production process. Lean construction is concerned with the alignment and holistic pursuit of concurrent and continuous improvements in all dimensions of the built and natural environment:

  • Design
  • Construction
  • Activation
  • Maintenance
  • Salvaging, and
  • Recycling

This approach tries to manage and improve construction processes with minimum cost and maximum value by considering our clients needs.
