Build, Design and Construct Faster

Design-Build is a method of project delivery in which one entity – the design-build team – works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services.

Research shows design-build projects are delivered 33.5% faster than projects using the plan-spec-bid-build process. In addition, design-build projects are constructed 12% faster and have a unit cost that is 6.1% lower than plan-spec-bid-build projects.

BIM Designs Delivers Faster Results With Design-Build Methodology

Our Professional Engineers, designers, CAD operators, and detailers can design virtually any piping system required for all industries. The design team works as the direct contact through all stages of the project workflow, from the initial concept through construction.

This direct relationship approach optimizes clear lines of communication and responsibility with clients, resulting in savings of time and cost, and a true turnkey product.

What is BIM?

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is revolutionising how buildings are designed, constructed and maintained. This quick guide explores what BIM is, how it works and why it matters for manufacturers and designers alike.

BIM: A digital revolution in the building industry

The transition to Building Information Modelling (BIM) began to spread via “early adopters” more than ten years ago. Fast-forward to today and there are millions of active BIM users across the globe. But what drove us to discard our beloved drawings and embrace BIM technology?

In the 1900s, construction design gradually began to evolve from hand-drawn plans to computer-aided design (CAD). The computer became standard practice, which streamlined drawing management and improved the visualisation process.

However, these drawings were still primarily visual representations, which made it difficult to collaborate and share construction project information. The inception and invention of BIM filled this void and propelled the construction industry into the Information Age.

Architects and construction engineers use BIM to create 3D models of a complete and furnished building – using software such as Revit (Autodesk), MicroStation (Bentley) as well as Graphisoft Archicad, Allplan and Vectorworks (Nemetschek Group).

But BIM isn’t a design or visualisation tool. It’s a process that enables the creation of a shared data model. This model is available for all concerned; from the designers of the building to the construction company, and finally the property owners and managers.

These models can also contain information related to the building’s life cycle and its expected maintenance requirements. Information such as time planning (4D), cost estimates (5D) and sustainability (6D) bring additional dimensions to BIM models.
