WHY BIM?

THE UTILIZATION OF BIM (BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING) IS GROWING AS OWNERS, DESIGN PROFESSIONALS AND CONTRACTORS BECOME INCREASINGLY MORE AWARE OF ITS BENEFITS. TEVEBAUGH ASSOCIATES USES BIM TO STREAMLINE THE ENTIRE LIFECYCLE OF A PROJECT FROM PROJECT INCEPTION TO COMPLETION THERE BY BENEFITTING THE DESIGN PROCESS IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS:

DESIGN

IN THE EARLY STAGES OF A PROJECT, THE BIM MODEL IS PRIMARILY UTILIZED AS A PRESENTATION TOOL TO COMMUNICATE DESIGN INTENT TO CLIENTS. RENDERINGS AND ANIMATIONS, PRODUCED IN HOUSE, ARE ALSO MARKETING TOOLS FOR FUNDRAISING, SALES, AND OTHER VISUAL COMMUNICATION NEEDS.

CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION

THE UTILIZATION OF A SINGLE BIM MODEL AS OPPOSED TO COMPILING MULTIPLE CAD DRAWINGS FROM NUMEROUS CONSULTANTS HELPS IN PREVENTING DOCUMENTATION CONFLICTS AND ERRORS WHICH, IN TURN, TRANSLATES INTO REDUCED RFI’S AND CHANGE ORDERS

CONSTRUCTION MANAGMENT

ESTABLISHING A “ZERO HITS” MODEL IS KEY TO THE SUCCESS OF A BIM PROJECT. CLASH DETECTION TESTS ARE RUN BY COMBINING OUR 3D ARCHITECTURAL MODEL WITH STRUCTURAL AND MEP DESIGNS TO DETECT CONFLICTS BEFORE FABRICATION AND INSTALLATION.

PROJECT CLOSE OUT

WE PROVIDE AN AS-BUILT MODEL TO OUR CLIENTS INCORPORATING ANY FIELD REVISIONS. THE MODEL CAN BE INCORPORATED INTO FACILITY MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE AND UTILIZED FOR BUILDING SYSTEM MANAGEMENT.
