The AEC industry consists of separate players -- architecture, engineering and construction -- that work together to bring a project to fruition. By integrating these seemingly separate entities into a single industry, architects, engineers and contractors can work more efficiently to achieve a common goal. The AEC industry has several practical applications that facilitate the technology, outsourcing and exchange of information within the industry. We play a big part in this cycle; We coordinate between all players and help them to reach the common goal by producing coordinated drawings using CADD and VDC as our tool. This concept is greatly increasing productivity in the AEC industry, but it typically requires specialized training because of the complexity of the process and we are one of those specialized company.
Many organizations have extensive paper-based archives that would be more convenient for storage and use in an electronic format. We offer paper to CAD conversion service i.e. conversion of drawings available in paper into vector drawings through process of scanning and conversion of the images into electronic drawings. We can provide CAD converted drawings in any specific format/standard.
A construction drawing is the bridge between building design and physical building form. A key element of documentation services, construction drawings provide the instructions for transferring design solutions into bricks and mortar. We provide complete construction drawing sets (CD sets) for the leading Architectural firms & homebuilders. As a preferred architectural CAD outsourcing services partner to our clients, we create complete construction sets for new homes besides developing specific details and address-specific drawings for single-unit and multi-unit dwelling. We provide architectural drawings for a wide range of projects including corporate premises, hotels, public hospitals, educational institutions etc.
The phrase "as-built" in construction is equivalent to "as-is." Drawings deemed "as-built" are thus drawings that show the EXISTING conditions as they are or "as-is" ? these are the actual existing conditions as opposed to designs or proposed conditions, which are more common for the content of drawings.
As-built drawings can be documented either after or during construction. When it's after construction, a qualified technician collects accurate data to reconstruct the drawings. When it's during construction, the design drawings are red-marked for editing. We provide these drawings based on the contractor’s/owner’s input (Construction drawings, Current survey Drawings, Redesign Data, etc.).
Owners who want to use existing space more efficiently or tenants required to do their own interior build-outs often require space planning services. In particular, the interiors of older stuffs may need reorganization to accommodate new stuffs or new work processes. We provide this service with the owner’s or contractor’s instruction.We provide our services for the formatting of raw survey data as per BOMA standards to create marketing drawings, base-plans for design team and architects, lease plans, interactive color-coded and stacking floor plans dynamically linked to databases, web-ready layouts, fire escape plans etc.
We have established BIM expertise and protocols including standards and a portfolio of completed projects from concept design stage to full construction documentation and as-built condition. Based on our expertise level we provide BIM services for all disciplines-Architectural, Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire Protection. Our key strength is our customer-centric approach, allowing us to develop long-term business relationships with our clients.
Our team consists of architects, engineers, and other highly skilled professionals who can design BIMs from scratch or convert 2D drawings into 3D model that saves time and money by virtually assembling a building before construction actually begins. Based on the BIM output, we can create simple models that generate Clash Detection reports, further more complex models can produce Quantity Take-Offs ,Shop Drawings 4D Facility Management.
We find a lot of errors now by using BIM platforms; in fact, in some of the platforms, it's actually possible to automate what we call ‘clash detection,' where we're looking for ductwork that hits beams, pipes that hit ductwork, etc. Using BIM, clashes and conflicts can be resolved in the documents stage instead of on‐site during construction. When you design and build virtually, then you have a higher chance of eliminating planning and design errors or inefficiencies that lead to construction problems, delay the project, cause the project to be over budget, or impact long‐term facility operations. Conflict detection reduces the number of requests for information (RFIs) and change orders, saving both time and money. As architects are starting to adopt BIM, the trade contractors are following. They're realizing that they may have to invest a lot more time and money upfront to create a more intelligent drawing through a 3‐D model, but it's going to save them a lot of time in the field with rework and rerouting.
4‐D capabilities make scheduling easier with BIM. A 3‐D building information model provides excellent visualization of a space. When that model illustrates the phases of construction over time, it becomes 4‐D (3‐D plus time). 4‐D schedules are a powerful tool for phasing, coordinating, and communicating planned work to a variety of audiences, including project stakeholders and those directly responsible for executing the work. Materials can be calculated automatically, ordered electronically, and delivered to the site in larger preassembled pieces just when they're needed. There are huge advantages to that because you don't have as much raw material on the site. Because these raw materials are sometimes moved as many as seven times over the course of a construction project, just‐in‐time (JIT) delivery increases the efficiency of workers. Using the building information model for specifications, steel and MEP systems can be prefabricated off‐site. We can actually have [structural elements] produced off‐site now, at a lower cost and in a more friendly environment, and then have them shipped to the site and erected in a very precise, quicker period of time. Simply put, BIM helps perfect project phasing. It provides the ability to optimize procedures that are used to build, so you can place cranes in the right position, use your manpower most effectively, and deliver materials on time.
