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

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.
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
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.
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:
TAKE BIM DATA FROM DESIGN
Capture data throughout the delivery process. Our unique data auditing methods insure that all participants contribute to the delivery of valuable data for FMO.
We help you develop the key guiding documents that regulate the information flow between all project participants.
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.
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.
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.
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.
“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.”
