WITH BIM, WE BUILD ON SCREEN
BEFORE DOING IT FOR REAL.
Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Large or complex projects can benefit from a bit of preplanning and coordination in the form of BIM – Building Information Modeling. It allows us to visualize where electrical, HVAC, mechanical and plumbing assets will go before they’re built, to ensure there aren’t any crashes. Eliminate the crashes and you get rid of the associated (and expensive) rework they cause.
BIM allows everyone to see the impact of design or capacity changes before committing the time and materials to build. It helps create more precise construction documents. And, most importantly, it saves money. In many cases, 20-30%.
At Fraser Engineering, we have multiple AUTOCAD MEP and ACAD licenses. We also have a very close relationship with AUTOCAD specialists, so there’s no job we can’t model.
