Building Information Modeling Services (BIM)
Capitalize on the Significance of Technology
Participants in the building process are constantly challenged to deliver successful projects despite tight budgets, limited manpower, accelerated schedules, and limited or conflicting information. The Building Information Modeling (BIM) concept visualizes the virtual construction of a building prior to its actual physical construction in order to reduce uncertainty, improve safety, work out problems, and simulate and analyze potential impacts.
BIM can bridge the information loss associated with handling a project from the design team, to the construction team and to the building owner/operator, by allowing each group to add and reference back to all information they acquire during their period of contribution to the BIM model.
At AMS CAD + CAFM Solutions, we can assist you in integrating BIM into your project. Below are our areas of expertise for BIM Services.
AMS CAD + CAFM Solutions provides a meaningful personal assessment to your firm's hardware, level of expertise, and project timeline, in addition to identifying training, coaching and support required.
AMS CAD + CAFM Solutions can help your organization make its workflow more efficient by establishing a set of BIM standards. These BIM standards can help your team plan and model valuable information that can be reused across different projects in your organization. Revit Libraries, annotations, view styling, project build-ups and usual components can all be defined and saved in a common repository for later use, creating custom project templates tailored to your needs.
The AMS CAD + CAFM BIM Specialists will assist you, not only in the initial stages of your project, but through the entire BIM project envelope, from Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documentation, Construction Administration, and Completion.
At AMS CAD + CAFM Solutions, we want your BIM projects to be successful and profitable. If your organization requires immediate assistance during any phase of the Building envelope, our BIM Specialists are available to assist your staff, ensuring a smooth process, optimal performance, and profitable completion.
Contemporary approaches to using BIM tools such as Autodesk Revit, offer a parametric 3D model which can be used to generate information for quantity takeoffs, solar studies, day-lighting simulation, and fabrication possibilities early in the design process. With more parametric control over designed components, designers can explore variations, analyze design artifacts and be more efficient. AMS CAD + CAFM Solutions can assist you during this process.
To really start to utilize the enormous power of Autodesk Revit, you need to understand exactly what Revit Families are and how they are composed. Armed with this knowledge, you will be able to create any custom component you wish. AMS CAD + CAFM Solutions can teach your organization how to customize building elements and enhance your team's proficiency.
As the design team acclimates to a BIM workflow, the adoption of a corporate strategy for model management becomes important. Effective management is required to ensure that the model data remains coordinated, well-structured, and efficient. Secondary benefits include reduced errors, improved consistency between team members, and gains in production efficiency.
Implementing Autodesk Revit effectively requires profound changes in the way architects work at almost every level within design. With our help, your organization will benefit from a clear set of guidelines that outline an effective strategy and methodology of implementing Revit. Our Revit Specialists will share several techniques that can be used more efficiently, such as how to be disciplined about modeling; purging unused elements; and finding appropriate substitutions for complex or overly detailed geometry. All these reduce the file size and speed up operation.
AMS CAD + CAFM supports interaction with Autodesk Revit. Using this BIM integration, you can publish floor plans from Revit models to FM:Interact for enterprise-wide access to floor plans and data; manage actual space inventory, allocations and occupancy in the Space Management module within Revit Architecture; and synchronize families in Revit models with building systems data in the Facility Maintenance Module. The intent is to connect BIM data from design, construction and renovation to facility management and operations.
