Real stories from real BIM people
3D BIM in New Construction
Location: East Hartford, United States
Year of the project: 2018
- Residence Inn, located in Hamden, CT was a new construction development project of a 4-story hotel building. The significant challenge in this project was a crucial and complicated roofing, It involved multi-slope roofing which required accurate modeling skills and expertise ti execute it with precision and significant speed. We were glad to be a part of this project as a BIM partner, assigned with BIM execution involving 3D modeling.
- Project Brief:
- The scope of this hospitality proiject consisted of creating a 3D BIM models of the 4-story hotel building. It included the 3D modeling of design disciplines i.e. Architectural, Structural, MEP with fire protection. After the initial modeling phase, we assisted in design- MEP coordination, identifying the possible clashes in the design and correcting it.
