During preconstruction, we use BIM to eliminate field conflicts between mechanical and electrical trade systems and to pre-plan logistics for complex site conditions or structural elements. This can eliminate costly re-work or stoppage of work in the field and increases labor efficiency while reducing field congestion through the prefabrication of assemblies. Use of suitable technology through the design and construction process supports a predictable and reliable project outcome. We always assess the cost-benefit of investing in BIM for each project to ensure we are providing the best value to our clients.
