Building Information Modeling (BIM) Process
Shapiro & Duncan offers customers the advantage of a Building Information Modeling (BIM) process that is managed and operated in-house.
Our BIM process, which incorporates the latest AutoCAD and other leading third-party CAD programs, is a solution that can produce composite mechanical drawings in 3D for planning, fabrication and installation of mechanical components. Using NavisWorks as the primary BIM platform, we are able to identify collisions and work through any clash detection issues digitally, rather on the job site. Ultimately, the BIM process is the key to cost-efficient design and placement of all trades in the defined space.
"When Shapiro and Duncan is on a Whiting-Turner project, it means one less contractor we have to worry about. From the use of BIM for coordination in ceilings and mechanical spaces to having many items come to the job site prefabricated, Shapiro and Duncan plays a leading role in meeting or exceeding quality standards of the project and contributes to the project being done on time and on budget."
