Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Data and Visualization That Makes Great Design Possible

 

BIM is an essential tool for architectural projects of any scale. We rely on it to communicate design, resolve potential issues, and make crucial changes in real time.

A Living Model of Your Project

DesignGroup uses BIM (Building Information Modeling) at an advanced level on virtually every project. It’s a remarkably powerful design platform that allows us to create highly detailed construction documents and 3D models of buildings. Our design team members use BIM to review the project with clients, suppliers, construction partners, and others. Among many benefits, BIM reduces change orders and gives clients an even greater sense of confidence in the project.

Putting the "I" in BIM

DesignGroup reveals just how deep BIM goes, in terms of a project model’s information database and the many ways it can augment a design program. It all begins with a “discovery talk” at the start of any project.
