Building information modeling, or BIM, is a state-of the-art technology used to manage both complexity and decision making throughout the project life cycle. Alpha Corporation integrates BIM technology into delivering engineering, project controls, scheduling, cost estimating, and management services to help clients optimize project delivery.
Using BIM technology, we link the three key project performance parameters – scope, schedule and cost -into a “triangular” relationship to quickly and accurately analyze how changing one parameter changes the others. This real-time “cause and effect” analytical capacity helps us proactively shape project scope to align with budget and schedule expectations.
BIM is commonly associated with three-dimensional (3D) drawings. Alpha harnesses the additional value-adding dimensions of BIM technology as follows:
- 4D for linking building design elements and assemblies with CPM schedule activities yielding animated building construction visuals;
- 5D for quantity survey data to prepare cost estimates;
- 6D for managing project documentation; and,
- 7D for accessing and utilizing collected project information for building operations and maintenance.
Alpha Corporation’s integrated and comprehensive approach in applying BIM technology to project delivery provides real-time control for managing scope, cost and schedule; and provides clients with comprehensive project documentation for maintaining and operating building assets.Contact Us About Our BIM Integration/Coordination Services
