Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an innovative method to seamlessly bridge communication within the Architecture, Engineering and Construction communities. The term “BIM” means Information. That information can be graphical or non-graphical and contained directly in the model or accessible through linked data stored elsewhere. The ability to integrate the design and engineering process through information contained on the documents is what separates BIM from just another drawing tool. Specifically, RENEWABLE, has integrated the following into process:

  • 3D modeling of Mechanical, Electrical, Plumping & Proccess systems
  • Integration of the 3D MEP model with architecture and structural components
  • Use of component attributes to allow for product schedule development, cost estimating and linking with shop drawing review/O&M manuals
  • Importing documents to contractors for development of 3D coordination drawings
  • Develop 3D models for coordination and collaboration
