Throughout the adoption of BIM, architects have seen their fair share of stumbling blocks. By partnering with ENGworks, architects gain a new level of flexibility that enhances their profitability. The implementation of an expanded BIM resource pool ensures value-added services to their clients, therefore improving revenues and residual business.
Specific BIM Services for Architects
As fellow practitioners, ENGworks has created the functionality of the browser with an engineer's interests in mind. The user will be able to locate content within the browser one of three ways: a manufacturer specified tree view, an alphabetically listed scroll bar of all pieces, and a search filter for quick results of specific requests. There are also preview renderings of all content, so the user is able to visually approve of the selection.
YouBIM is a SAAS (Software as a service) cloud based solution, for today's demanding facilities. By utilizing a 3 dimensional immersive environment for navigation of your property, facility maintenance needs can be identified and assigned quicker, also providing the facility technician with more information about the service environment.
The successful adoption of Building Information Modeling (BIM) can be a direct result of the processes and plan that is defined in the beginning stages of adoption. ENGworks has created and implemented dozens of BIM Execution Plans (BEP). After thorough investigation and goal definition these documents include standards and protocols for how the project team members will work together in the design and construction of a project.
BIM Modeling represents the central focus of the effort in design and constructability analysis. ENGworks brings to the table full Bentley and Autodesk expertise on all disciplines: Architectural, Structural, Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Protection. A customer centric approach is our key strength and has gone long way in developing long term business relationships with our clients.
ENGworks has worked closely with Autodesk to become a Premier Provider for the Autodesk Content Network (ACN). CADworks is one of a limited set of companies in the world to hold this distinction and the only company currently to specifically provide only certified MEP content to this network. ENGworks ensures our content, created and tested by our in-house architects/engineers, is the highest standard of quality for our clients. Creation of custom content for manufacturers is of a particular need in this changing technological landscape.
ENGworks has years of expertise at creating plans from BIMs. From the 3D model, ENGworks' skilled team of architects, engineers, and modelers are able to accurately and efficiently generate a high quality set of Permit, Construction, and/or Fabrication plans, taking advantage of the true BIM parametric efficiencies.
The ENGworks Coordination team is able to draw from years of experience in construction coordination and modeling, having led coordination and modeling efforts on dozens of multi-million square foot projects. With this acquired expertise ENGworks is able to offer assistance in all aspects of preconstruction and construction.
As an accurate BIM has already been generated, we can efficiently export it to the appropriate visualization software package, select the desired views, compose images, and produce photorealistic renderings. The presentations are tailored more to the audience, which will contain more valuable information about the project than if only a designer was presenting.
Technology has greatly eased work from different locations. We believe though, that for certain endeavors, a personal presence is required in order to increase communication, thereby maximizing efficiency. ENGworks can instruct general contractors and other team leaders in the effective oversight of Coordination meetings.
