Providing powerful value, Building Information Modeling, or BIM, is driving an unparalleled revolution in the construction industry, using 3D digital modeling software to more effectively design, detail, manufacture and erect buildings. But BIM is more than just a modeling tool, it’s a complete game changer.
BIM involves ground-up reality rather than top-down theory. It encompasses building geometry, spatial relationships, geographic information, as well as quantities and properties of building components. The process produces an exact digital prototype of your project, allowing you to build it virtually before building it in reality. So instead of having to look at hundreds or thousands of separate drawings, schedules, specs and cut sheets for all the information on a particular element, all the pertinent information is built into the object in the BIM. In this way, BIM seamlessly bridges gaps in communications between Builders, owners, architects, engineers and contractors.
The ability to collaborate and fix problems in the early stages of development, before construction has begun, means resolving issues well before money is lost on the jobsite. This leads to confidence and peace of mind for the entire life cycle of your project. Talk to one of our metal building professionals today to learn how BIM can change the game for you.
Nucor Building Systems proudly partners with Tekla, a leading modeling software solutions provider. Utilizing Tekla Structures as a BIM software solution, Nucor Building Systems has ensured that all modeling is cohesive. Tekla Structures provides an accurate, detailed, intelligent and data-rich 3D building information model environment. This means it possible to share model and drawing information with all IFC-compliant architectural modeling programs, creating open collaboration and interoperability, and 3D BIMs that can be utilized and shared by all building construction disciplines.
