What BIM means to HVAC
BIM (Building Information Modeling) is a digital
representation of the building and building process
to facilitate coordination, communication and
information exchange in a digital format. What that
means is HVAC Engineering, Inc. utilizes BIM to
create much more than just a 3D model.
BIM is not the solution for all design and
construction issues, but it is a powerful tool that
can greatly enhance the design, construction and
maintenance processes by providing a visual
database of the building. Our experience with BIM
allows us to provide services at each phase of the
Design Phase: Produce construction documentation,
organize different disciplines for coordination and
collision detection ,and provide models in formats
such as IFC, DWF and PDF.
