What is BIM?
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an architectural, engineering and construction workflow of utilizing information which has been loaded into a building design project. The information in a virtual model is commonly utilized in the areas of building design and engineering, material takeoff and cost estimating. Industry focus continues to be on the 3D value of a model which allows the building team to better plan, design, visualize, and construct the built environment.
Benefits of BIM
Overall, a building information model allows building owners to visualize their investment in a whole new way, in an accurately displayed virtual environment. Belz Architecture+Construction has embraced Building Information Modeling and strives to utilize technologies associated with this workflow. Having the ability to better communicate and coordinate with architects (in-house), engineers, building owners, and subcontractors improves our operating efficiency and greater defines our success as a Design/Build Contractor. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is transforming the design and construction industry and Belz Architecture+Construction is at the leading edge of this technoclogy.
BIM Services & Experiences
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is transforming the design and construction industry. Currently, many design firms are beginning to embrace three dimensional (3D) modeling tools. Belz Architecture+Construction has fully embraced the use of BIM for the design and construction process. We have full-time professionals devoted exclusively to BIM for construction projects.
