Building Informational Modeling (BIM) Services
From Facility Management
Building informational modeling (BIM) software goes beyond 3D to provide a multi-dimensional digital vision of your construction project. It incorporates spatial relations, light analysis, geographic information, and more to allow engineers to see the project from every angle, before anything is built.
At Kinetics, we use BIM software to identify and resolve potential design and installation conflicts before they happen. Because BIM tells the whole story, it allows us to:
- Understand the building life cycle and construction process
- Extract material quantities and shared properties
- Isolate and define scopes of work
- Show systems, assemblies, and time sequences–with the entire facility or sub-group of facilities
BIM helps reduce costs due to re-work, maximize pre-fabrication opportunities, and improve labor productivity. Virtual designs are shared across all disciplines, from building architects and engineers to the construction teams and subcontractors, to the customer; each contributing data to a single model.
Using BIM adds value to all types of projects including general office space, scientific laboratories, manufacturing facilities and central plants. It supports full coordination of mechanical, electrical and plumbing trades.
Because we use BIM, Kinetics can make cost estimates available during the design stage, for fabrication and field installation, so construction, operational, and maintenance costs can be balanced.
