Since 2005, Clinton has used Building Information Modeling process (BIM) on all major projects as a means to reduce time spent in design and coordination, as well as to minimize cost in the field by determining the most efficient conflict resolution prior to fabrication and installation.
Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent model-based design process that adds value across the entire lifecycle of building infrastructure projects. Some people mistakenly think of BIM as just a new variety of software. BIM is actually a process that relies on information-rich models to help owners and design and construction teams to plan, design, construct, and manage building infrastructure projects more efficiently. The reliance on digital design models has been a common practice in the manufacturing industry for decades.
A typical BIM coordination meeting from Clinton includes BIM department manager, BIM coordinator, project manager, along with all MEP subcontractors, and other subs. With BIM, project teams share intelligent models to better plan, design, build, and manage buildings.
