Building Information Modeling

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a planning process that utilizes dynamic 3D models to provide project members the opportunity to more efficiently plan/design the development and management of new structures. Utilizing the latest software and technology, RESPEC is proud to offer a full range of BIM services including BIM project planning, 3D modeling, point cloud conversions, virtual reality environments, and BIM consulting.

RESPEC employs BIM to integrate a 3D architectural model with structural, mechanical, and electrical elements to communicate and confirm design intent with stakeholders and contractors, allowing users to visualize the completed facility before breaking ground.

This data driven approach to information sharing and collaboration promotes efficiency, saving project time while allowing for the accommodation of complex designs and shorter construction schedules.
