Framing Prefabrication BIM Modeling & Modular Construction BIM
Building Information Modeling can bring significant efficiencies in construction when leveraging the models to Fabrication Level of Detail. We create LOD 400 wall assemblies, ceilings, Pods, etc., carefully coordinated with all trades. These manufactured panels or rooms will get prefabricated in a shop within a controlled environment and then installed extremely efficiently on the job site.
ENGworks counts with a team of framing BIM and modular construction experts that build long term partnerships with our Contractor’s clients.
We act as a true extension of their CAD/BIM departments, delivering Models, participating in the 3D/BIM Coordination process, producing layout, installation and shop drawings as well as accurate quantity takeoffs.
We utilize a series of scripts, plugins and workflows that make the process very efficient, allowing us to deliver saved time within the typical tide construction schedules.
Detailed Metal framing BIM Modeling can be performed for different purposes, not only Prefabrication but also on a more simplified and efficient manner just for Coordination with other trades, and efficient installation. In summary:
- Coordination with other trades: Identify clashes and design the necessary changes prior to the contractor investing real dollars and labor on the jobsite
- Openings Creation/Installation/Layout
- Prefabrication: By building more components offsite, we can increase the efficiency and keep time and costs down during construction
How we deliver our services – Off or On-Site
All our services can be performed at our own office, communicating via web-based collaboration tools, video calls and traditional phone calls.
However, we also believe that for certain endeavors a personal presence is required in order to increase communication, thereby maximizing efficiency. ENGworks designed a unique On-Site support business model, where we can provide on-site support by sending our BIM professionals to work at your office or in the field for a period of time (from a few weeks, months or even years at larger projects); while the rest of the team at ENGworks supports you from our offices.
We also offer different types of contracts to suit your needs, such as Time and Material, Lump Sum and Full-time engagements. Please contact us to discuss your next BIM project.
