WHAT IS BIM?

Your house is modeled PRECISELY as constructed from concrete footing to shingle roof cap.  Every element of your house is constructed in three dimensions, lines are no longer representations, a wall systems consists of clapboards or shingles or bricks, air infiltration barriers, plywood sheathing, 2 x 6 wood stud, ½” gypsum board finish painted and so on for every element – roof, floors, foundations.  Windows and other critical elements are assigned performance values, manufacturer’s exact unit and rough opening sizes, grid alignment, operability etc.  Building the house with information allows the designer to identify every critical aspect of the design will be able to be field built exactly per his or her vision. (It therefore allows the house plan purchaser the same benefit)  It allows the contractor to verify constructability, rely on accurate material take-offs all generated by this sophisticated software.

HOW CAN YOU PROVIDE INTELLIGENT FILES FOR SUCH A LOW PRICE?

We "build" the house using Building Information Modeling Software from the original architect or designer's blueprints.  Once "constructed" we can save multiple views in multiple formats.  Our libraries of details and construction techniques are bult from thirty plus years of architectural practice - in a variety of settings from the snowy northeast to the hurricane prone North Carolina coast.

DO I NEED SPECIAL SOFTWARE TO VIEW THE INTELLIGENT FILES?

No, we save all our files as pdf's.  You can download a free Acrobat Reader if your computer doesn't already have this program.  You can print hard copies of these files at any Staples, Office Max or the like.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF INTELLIGENT FILES?

  • Model photo realistic materials (colors, textures)
  • Ability to View 3-D Model to provide feedback for modification to design.
  • ASSURANCE that the design through and through is of the highest standards
  • ABILITY to review spatial aesthetics, sight lines, your finish selections, energy performance, constructability (especially important complex roof designs and wall geometries).
  • ALLOWS purchaser to quickly explore, evaluate multiple finish choices..
  • Obtain ACCURATE material quantity take-offs
  • Quickly EXPLORE design modifications, putting custom design within reach of consumers once limited to stock house plan purchases.

 

  • Our client's UNDERSTAND the design and the construction to a greater degree than those that purchase stock blueprints only.
