At Prism, we have been applying BIM technologies to all projects since 2006. Our Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) department is housed at our headquarters and is made up of a full time staff of 12 CAD and BIM experts. We use Revit for our BIM efforts and draw ad maintain models in house. We have the capability to develop to 4D. Further, we advocate for a paperless process and provide our field supervision staff with iPads, which are loaded with the latest project model or drawings.
Our estimating group uses lie-count, an electronic counting and measuring function in pdf format with automatic input into our AccuBid estimating program. Additionally, we apply laser scanning GPS softwares to ensure correct and early project layout.
Our goal is a project free of punch list items. We rely on BIM360 for coordinating with our QC team and the general contractor to identify potential punch list items well in advance of project completion.
