A streamlined, more accurate process for quality control.

MODEL BASED ESTIMATING

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a 3D model is worth a thousand drawings.

Model based estimating enables real-time cost estimation. Information embedded in the BIM models allow our team to quantify the 3D design almost instantaneously at every stage throughout design development. Allowing our team to produce faster and more accurate estimates. This process gives clients the ability to visualize a 3D color-depicted model and compare estimates of different design options, giving greater decision-making opportunities for value engineering to help reduce project costs and save time.

How we use model-based estimating:

DESIGN UNDERSTANDING

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a 3D model is worth a thousand drawings. By using 3D models during preconstruction our team can quickly understand the design intent without the design team having to continuously create drawing packages.

QUALITY CONTROL

Instead of manually counting everything on the drawings for each budget update we will do a traditional takeoff for our first budget, compare it to the quantities from the model for quality control, and then use these BIM takeoffs moving forward if our quantities align. Oftentimes not everything is shown in the 3D model and our team takes extra care to include everything.

RAPID BUDGET ITERATIONS

By streamlining the takeoff process using BIM, our Preconstruction team can quickly provide budget updates.

PROGRESS COMPARISONS

By comparing two versions of the same model, our software quickly identifies what has changed between progress models.
