Building Information Modeling (BIM)
What is BIM?
BIM is a process that involves creating and using an intelligent 3D model to inform and communicate project decisions. Design, visualization, simulation, and collaboration enabled by Autodesk BIM solutions provide greater clarity for all stakeholders across the project lifecycle. BIM makes it easier to achieve project and business goals.
Our Experience in BIM:
Three examples of our BIM
Philosphy at Work
At UCSD Jacobs Medical Center we performed laser scanning of the existing central plant and façade at the Thornton Hospital to ensure that the designteam had the accurate information for all existing connection points. As part of the integrated work flow, we converted the point cloud to a Revit model that is now linked to the design team’s Revit models.
This same information is inputted into a Trimble Total Station via Get The Point for precise field installation.
he same Jacobs Medical Center team took on the difficult task of locating the existing utilities and created a BIM of not only the future logistics but also of the all potholed utilities. The exercise paid off immediately by informing the team during schematic design that an existing 24” storm drain conflicted with the proposed central plant utility tunnel.
Our Marian Regional Medical Center project was designed using AutoCAD because at the time the initial design was done, about ten years before construction, parametric modeling was still in its infancy.
We took on the arduous task of modeling the entire architectural and structural plans using Revit and this became the basis for our coordination efforts. The structural steel, MEP, fire protection, pneumatic tube and seismic bracing were incorporated to provide a comprehensive coordinated BIM.
The model is similar to other BIM models except this was unique in that it was used to develop a composite point load submittal which was the first of its kind for OSHPD. This was reviewed by OSHPD and accepted with no comments.
