Building Information Modeling

Streamlining Construction through Virtual Prototyping

Services

Building Information Modeling - 3D BIM Consulting Services

Identify issues virtually before they become a reality.

The majority of building envelope performance issues relate to the lack of communication between the various trades. Computer-Aided Design & Drafting (CADD) offers an excellent venue for communicating clearly to all trades the proper installation, sequencing, and an understanding of one other’s role on the project. We can also supply models and testing information such that it can be incorporated into BIM documentation for our clients.

Zero/Six utilizes CADD technology and 3D modeling to:

1. Identify clash detection between trades

2. Elevate the level of communication between trades

3. Visually represent project components

4. Provide owners with detailed, high quality as-built documents

5. Provide a platform for documenting the commissioning process

Building Information Modeling (BIM) Services is an intelligent 3D model-based process that equips architecture, engineering, and construction professionals with the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructures. The model-based design process adds value across the entire life cycle of the building envelope, creating designs with intelligent objects. Similar to the space program, we’re not just bringing rocks back from the moon. We’re investing in the future by using BIM to provide long-term benefits over the life of your building that far outweighs the upfront cost of the service.

Virtual Problem-Solving

Harness the power of Building Information Modeling to identify and resolve issues virtually before they escalate, ensuring a smooth transition from design to construction.

Streamlined Coordination

Facilitate seamless coordination among stakeholders by visualizing potential clashes and providing resolutions, fostering a collaborative environment for project success.

Building Information Modeling​

Tech-Driven Visualization

The project is virtually constructed using Building Information Modeling (BIM), incorporating shop drawings, RFI's, addendums, and change orders

3D Building Information Model (BIM)

RFI’s are coordinated into the model creating a coordinated document that can be used for construction rather than building off of many RFIs.

RFI Review

Issues are identified virtually before materializing, with resolutions provided for any discovered concerns.

Clash Detection

Shop drawings are scrutinized to confirm alignment with design intent and avoid clashes with other trades.

Contract Document and Shop Drawing Review

Analyzing master plans to ensure alignment with project goals and compliance.

FAQ

Questions
What exactly is the pre-construction phase, and why is it crucial for a successful building project?

The pre-construction phase is the early planning stage of a construction project. It's where crucial decisions are made to minimize life cycle costs and maximize building sustainability. It allows us to address potential mistakes and optimize designs for long-term performance and energy efficiency.

How does Zero/Six ensure that our building design is both functional and aesthetically pleasing?

Our architectural experts work closely with clients to craft designs that marry aesthetics with functionality. We prioritize a balance between form and purpose to create buildings that are not only visually appealing but also highly practical.

What role does Building Information Modeling (BIM) play in your pre-construction services?

BIM is a critical tool we use to visualize your project in detail. It allows us to create a 3D model of the project, providing insights that enhance planning, coordination, and execution. Our BIM expertise ensures that you have a clear picture of the project before it's even built.

How does Zero/Six safeguard the quality and integrity of our project during the design and construction phases?

We offer peer review services that ensure every aspect of your project meets industry standards. Our expert reviews serve as an additional layer of quality assurance, guaranteeing excellence in every detail, from design to construction.

What is the significance of a Commissioning Plan in pre-construction, and how does Zero/Six create one for our projects?

A Commissioning Plan is vital to ensure that all systems work harmoniously within a building. We develop customized plans that cover everything from HVAC to electrical systems, aiming to guarantee a seamless and efficient project execution. This process sets the foundation for a well-functioning building from the start.
