"Driving Customer Productivity."

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. A BIM is a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle; defined as existing from earliest conception to demolition.

Benefits of BIM for Engineers

  • Design, visualize, simulate and analyze key physical and functional characteristics before they build
  • Increased coordination
  • Specify correct products

Benefits of BIM for Builders/Contractors

  • Check reports on materials, orders, sorting material delivered on site
  • Identify workflows and generate schedules based on previously delivered and installed parts
  • Eliminate potential problems and misunderstandings
  • Supports communication between sub-suppliers
  • Facilitates efficient change and modification of projects

Benefits of BIM for Wholesalers

  • Collaboration with engineer and contractor prior to project start
  • Adopt integrated project delivery in supply chain partners
  • Meet your customer needs with on-time delivery
  • Eliminate incorrect product ordering or delivery
