Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent model based process that provides insight for creating and managing building and infrastructure projects faster, more economically, and with less environmental impact. Autodesk BIM software includes a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for design, visualization, simulation, and collaboration that uses the rich information in the intelligent model to support better decision-making and break down the barriers to better business.
BIM & VDC Modeling
As Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) become the industry standard, many of our firms have limited support from the top or a staff capable of completing projects with short deadlines. Our core competency is working with firms to develop those skills. We have the ability to work with you as we are training your teams or perform the work for you.
