BUILDING DATA THAT
WORKS FOR YOU

We help you implement structured workflows to ensure the generation of useable building information that facilitates
‘Data driven decision making’.

Unlock the value of your building data

Improve project quality.
Reduce rework

Evaluate design decisions on an ongoing basis, resolve coordination issues early, and increase the use of pre-fabricated components. A well planned process increases the quality your project teams can deliver.

Increase certainty
over time and cost

Identify and resolve issues in a virtual environment. Coordination of systems prior to their installation in the field, enables prefabrication, and reduces rework, project delays and project costs resulting in a higher quality finished product

Understand
your building

Instantly find all the information known about your building, at all times from design through to Operations in an interactive, visual format. No more searching paper drawings or O&M manuals, the information is just a click away.

Build a rock-solid BIM process from the ground up

Summit BIM works with designers, engineers, contractors, and owners to implement structured processes and workflows that generate usable building data. At a practical level this can involve:

CONTRACT LANGUAGE
DEFINITION

BIM STRATEGIC
SUPPORT

BIM STANDARDS
DEVELOPMENT

BIM
PROJECT AUDITS

COORDINATION AND
CLASH DETECTION

CONNECT BIM TO
FACILITIES MANAGEMENT

Contract Language Definition

We write and define BIM clauses for your RFPs that reflect the goals and uses of BIM to your business. Laying out how project information will be created, managed, and shared from initial concept onwards insures effective project collaboration.

  • Workshops to define goals and uses of BIM
  • Create an RFI/RFP checklist with appropriate BIM language and specifications
  • Audit existing projects - comparison to brief

BIM Project Audits

We audit the digital model and data to insure compliance with industry standards, the standards laid out in the BIM Project Execution Plan, and the data requirements of other project participants.

  • Compare actual output with established BIM standards
  • Confirm that data is where we expect it to be
  • Complete variance audits that pinpoint what has changed between shared models

BIM Strategic Support

We develop your strategic approach to BIM based on your goals. Mapping BIM project deliverables to your key business drivers, we work with you to assess your current state, map workflows, and oversee and coordinate the BIM process.

  • Identify BIM uses with key stakeholders
  • Complete a stocktake of your current BIM maturity
  • Develop best practices and workflows
  • Deliver project-based training

Coordination and
Clash Detection

At agreed upon project stages, we integrate the models from the architect, structural engineer, MEP engineer, and other stakeholders into a single digital model and identify any inconsistencies that need to be resolved.

  • Deliver a comprehensive clash detection strategy
  • Communicate issues out to project team
  • Prioritize and resolve issues before they arise on site

BIM Standards Development

We help you develop the key guiding documents that regulate the information flow between all project participants.

  • Develop and document BIM standards
  • Write the BIM Project Execution Plan (BIM PEP), Level of Development (LOD), and Model Progression Specification (MPS)
  • Propagate the BIM Plan to the project team

Connect BIM to
Facilities Management

We establish data delivery protocols that support FMO at the outset and complete data audits throughout to insure that the information is captured correctly.

  • Collect and collate data
  • Bring the data into a single digital model that can be accessed by all users

“To many people, Building Information Modeling is synonymous with 3D modeling. But BIM goes deeper. Like an iceberg, 90% is below the surface and this is where the true value lies, in the data that drives the process. Exposing and using this data allows BIM to reach its full potential.”
