Danforth 3D BIM Coordination
Danforth’s Building Information Modeling Team works hand-in-hand with our Engineering, Estimating, Construction and Maintenance Teams to facilitate planning and implementation of our projects. We utilize this technology to improve internal and external collaboration during the design, construction, and operation of our customer’s facility. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process utilizing information sharing and 3D modeling to discover design conflicts and develop working solutions prior to field construction.
Danforth offers our clients a single source for crucial project information. This improves the organization and execution of even the most complex jobs. BIM is especially useful to Danforth as it relates to our prefabrication capabilities. Our in-house BIM operators create spool, fabrication and shop drawings for use by our various fabrication teams. Our fabrication personnel also utilize these drawings to coordinate with field personnel to preempt field installation conflicts and reduce lost field labor hours.
Our BIM Team employs the computer technologies available to collaborate with the Design-Build Team, construct informational 3D building models, and streamline our workflow. As a self-performing mechanical contractor, BIM is critical to maximizing our efficiency on project delivery.
