Building Information Modelling (BIM)
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent model-–based process that provides insight for creating and managing building and infrastructure projects faster, more economically, and with less environmental impact. Autodesk BIM software includes a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for design, visualization, simulation, and collaboration that uses the rich information in the intelligent model to inform better decision-making and break down the barriers to better business.
BIM & VDC Modeling
As Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) become the industry standard, not all firms or subcontractors have the luxury of support from the top or a staff capable of completing projects with short deadlines. Our core competency is working with firms to develop those skills. We have the ability to work with you as we are training your teams or just simply do the work for you.
