Building Information Modeling (BIM) is one of Southland´s key tools for generating and managing building data during the life cycle of every project. We use the industry-leading Autodesk® Revit® to create three-dimensional, intelligent building models that provide real-time snapshots of project status, perform load calculations, analyze energy consumption and more.
The Big Picture – The models contain highly detailed information not just about the design, but about the actual engineered result, right down to links to manufacturerss specs for the parts and equipment being used. Its a crucial part of identifying problems during the design phase rather than during the construction phase, when theyre far more expensive and time-consuming to fix.
Custom Results – With drafting capabilities compatible with all types of design software and building systems, BIM operates far beyond avoiding problems: its an incredibly powerful tool we use to assist building owners in obtaining specific results from their systems. Whether the priority is energy efficiency or the ultimate in occupant comfort, BIM is a critical tool towards achieving those goals.
Maintenance Benefits – BIM serves Southlands customers long after the construction project is delivered. It offers a major advantage in maintaining your mechanical systems, because instead of digging up old blueprints and trying to figure out systems someone else created a long time ago, we can simply turn to the BIM we created. No delay, no guesswork.
Our use of BIM benefits every member of the project team: developers, architects, specialty consultants, builders, and ultimately, the owners and occupants.
