BIM Services are offerings that are required to carry out BIM methodology provided for architects, engineers, and contractors to the building project’s design and construction side.

BIM stands for Building Information Modeling, which means an intelligent digital representation of a building facility’s physical and functional characteristics. BIM is an interoperability process for efficient team collaboration and data movement between different BIM platforms.

Our Architectural BIM Services provide an information-rich Revit BIM Architectural model from sketches, drawings, point cloud scan, PDF; as well as custom Revit content/family, and 3D rendering & visualization, etc. for our clients as per the Scope of Work (SOW) and with required Level of Detail (LOD).

Construction Document (CD)

In the Construction Document (CD) stage, where the emphasis is on collaboration among team members.

Develop construction-ready drawings & model that matches the design required by the contractor to construct the buildings and the changes coming from clash detection. Deliver Construction Document set – Architectural, Structural, MEP, Landscape, and Other drawings and documents.

We provide fully annotated floor plans, all dimensions of the plan, rooms, walls, doors, and windows layout, sections view, exterior elevations, shop drawings, and as-built drawings. We can develop a construction-ready model that includes design-intent changes as well as changes coming from clash resolution.

Revit Drafting Services

Our Revit Drafting Services in Each Architectural Design Phase.

We provide Revit Drafting Services for each of the design phases – Schematic Design (SD), Design Document (DD), and Construction Document (CD). We can develop 2D CAD drawings in Revit & AutoCAD as per required country-specific standards, company’s charters/templates, code compliance, and as per the design intent.  We start from Schematic Design, incorporate markups or red-lines or annotations that we receive throughout SD, DD, and CD design stages, and deliver drawings and models with the required Level of Detail (LOD).

Schematic Design (SD)

In the Schematic Design (SD) stage, where the emphasis is on design. We produce design drawings with general plan layout, elevation, sections, openings, and finishes and three-dimensional graphics (isometric, axonometric, and perspectives).

Schematic Design gives a graphical shape to the project idea. It basically includes the main building form, space planning, and 3D views – isometrics, axonometric, and perspectives.

We deliver 2D and 3D drawings for the initial design of the floor plans of all levels, generic opening and plumbing fixtures, exterior building elevations with representative openings and finishes, building cross-sections, typical wall sections, along with exterior and interior model views.

Design Development (DD)

In the Design Development (DD) stage, where the emphasis is on finalizing design decisions.
We deliver models with detailed information like dimensions, exterior elevations, structure, fenestration, interior systems, MEP systems along with the design of openings and finishes, wall sections, etc.

The Design Development phase involves finalizing the design and specifications of items such as material, windows and doors location, and structural details.

We deliver accurate and detailed drawings with floor plans (design opening and plumbing layout), overall dimensions, structural grid dimensions, interior wall dimensions, exterior elevations with the design of openings and finishes, wall sections, typical details, quantity take-offs (bill of materials), and cost estimation.

Fundamental Definitions Associated with LOD

In the current context, there are six different levels of development that are defined by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). According to AIA, LOD outlines the design requirements at each stage.

At LOD 100, which is the pre-design stage, the model consists of 2D symbols and the masses to signify an element’s existence.
At LOD 200, the elements are partially defined by outlining their approximate quantity, size, shape, and location.
By LOD 300, the elements are defined with exact dimensions and their relative positions bolstering precision.
LOD 350 describes the information about an element precisely and outlines an element’s relation and connection with other components.
The LOD 400 level outlines the basic information about the construction of various elements.
By LOD 500 the model begins representing the real-life functions of elements in a real building. Here are all the levels of development with their definitions in detail.

BIM Coordination Services

Our BIM Coordination services provide clash-free coordinated 3D BIM models by resolving clashes among disciplines/trades – MEP systems, architectural and structural – leading to minimal design changes/modifications.

Deliver Clash-free, Accurate and Coordinated Construction Model through our BIM Coordination Services and BIM Process
We strongly believe in “Prevention is better than cure”, and that’s the guiding principle we follow in our BIM Coordination services during key stages of building design – schematic design, design documents, and construction documents.

During the entire BIM coordination process, we run multiple clash detection tests to reduce hard and soft clashes thus leading to a clash-free coordinated construction model.

We believe in “Collaborating Together Coordinating Better” so we work closely with the entire team of subcontractors (mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire system), general contractors, architects, structural engineers, etc. Our consultative approach during the entire BIM coordination process helps team members to take collective decisions for the design changes or modifications

Clash Report Generation
Provide a clash report dashboard covering soft & hard clashes and showing progress made over the time for a gatekeeper meeting – MEP engineers, architects, general contractors, designers, and building owners.

Soft & Hard Clash Detection
Identify and resolve soft & hard clashes within each discipline/trade that were unidentified during the individual design of each discipline– architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing.

Coordination Ownership
Accompany you for the on-site gatekeeper meetings/visits or be a part of coordination meetings, facilitating the entire building design coordination phase from schematic design to construction documents.

Design Modification
Iteratively implement the required design changes, discussed during the coordination meetings, into the MEP system model, and eventually deliver a coordinated construction model.

Why Choose Our BIM Coordination Services?

We use BIM Execution Plan and BIM workflow for BIM coordination services (Autodesk’s Navisworks widely used). Our BIM coordination approach provides multidisciplinary clash detection among Architectural, Structural, and MEPFP systems. As a BIM coordinator, we coordinate and communicate with each stakeholder of the design and construction team to solve all the clashes, ensuring that there is harmony between the Architectural design, Structural design, and MEPFS design. We eliminate conflicts at an early stage of design which surely provide a positive outcome on the project.

We accompany you in the entire VDC Coordination process from the very first coordination meeting to the final sign-off meeting. We run the clash detection process in Navisworks and provide a dashboard showing the clash reports of possible collisions amongst Architectural, Structural, MEPFP, and other components. Our clash reports help the design team to make a collaborative decision over the required design changes/modification.
