Building Information Modeling (BIM) – The New Generation of Design
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the creation of parametric,
or intelligent, 3D models instead of 2D perspective
‘un-intelligent’ drawings. A BIM operates on a digital database
and any change made to this database is reflected throughout the
entire drawing. This allows everyone involved in the building
lifecycle – architects, engineers, contractors, developers, and
building owners - to sync together allowing them to view the model
in different ways and seamlessly share information. We use
ArchiCAD & ADT to create BIM.
BIM’s produce construction documents that resemble those created
by 2D CAD Drafting, but are done much faster and contain information about
quantities, materials and other data that can be used in both the
construction and management of a building.
offer Building Information Modeling services creating parametric,
sophisticated, intelligent models that expand communication to all
members of the project.
Following Causes of Cost Overruns are Decreased by Utilizing a
Well Designed BIM
Incomplete drawings, poor pre-planning process, lack of timely
decisions made by the owner, excessive change orders.
many benefits of BIM
BIM’s provide up-to-date and reliable information of the project
design, scope, cost information, schedules, energy analysis,
structural design, facility management, etc.
take the 2D CAD Drawing & Drafting solutions to the next level by adding the
management of relationships between building components, which
allows information about the intent of the design to be captured
in the beginning of the design process.
provide data that can be extracted for various uses, including:
benefits from using a BIM:
accurate than 2D drawings
Better coordination between all involved parties
Lowers costs – such as those incurred during construction, because
a BIM is a higher quality set of documents.
also help to decrease construction costs and costs for quantity
Building Information Modeling Management (BIM2) Services
AR Digitech offers Building Information Modeling Management (BIM2) services which include the collection,
development, management, coordination, and presentation of BIM
data to all users in the lifecycle. We offer this service at any
phase in the design cycle to any of the key players involved in
the building creation. Our models are delivered in the client’s
specified format, ensuring coordination and compatibility for all
partnering with us as your BIM2

Building Information Modeling
Because our BIMs use components (such as walls, doors, and
windows) to create a virtual 3D building model – we can extract
items such as scheduling information and electronic take-offs, and
perform design verifications.
Design Verification services consist of the review and input of
construction drawings from all of the involved disciplines into a
BIM. Based on this input, our system determines geometric
conflicts in the construction design. If any clarifications
required for construction need to be explored, Our team will do
this as well. Utilizing this service reduces errors and omissions
in construction drawings. In our experience, approximately 90% of
all drawings have some errors or omissions of varying degrees. Our
services help to eliminate these errors.
Survey services include the “counting” of most product based items
in construction drawings. If requested, we can also perform gross
square feet quantifications and volume take-off services. With our
quality processes in place, we are inherently more accurate than
companies that perform take-offs internally. We have even had
clients hire us to verify their own work.
