Participants in the building process are constantly challenged to deliver successful projects despite tight budgets, limited manpower, accelerated schedules, and limited or conflicting information. The significant disciplines such as architectural,structural and MEP designs should be well coordinated. Building Information Modeling aids in collision detection at the initial stage, identifying the exact location of discrepancies.
The use of BIM is the backbone of new, leaner design and construction methods such as Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC). The ability that BIM provides to design, construct and operate a building virtually will prove to be an important instrument to increase productivity while at the same time improve the quality of work.
Centroid has been a niche player in the industry and for the last five years has been working globally with various AEC industries. Our approach envisions technology as a business process enabler. Over the past five years, we have emerged as a strategic technology partner to global clients across mature markets offering BIM services and solutions related to:
Providing a one stop solution to all of the modeling needs, Centroid has highly skilled BIM professionals comprising of architects and engineers. We deliver up-to-date and accurate information related to the design scope, costs, quantities and all properties of the building components. We ensures precise architectural BIM models which help the project architect make better well-informed decisions and minimize design errors. Our expertise in creating ASMEP BIM models has been leading to improved coordination of drawings and documents while serving as the base to provide seamless integration between design, engineering, analysis, construction, and operations for the entire lifecycle of facilities.
With the knowledge of the latest softwares like Trimble's VICO, Centroid has an edge over our competitors in the global market. We integrate BIM model with VICO to extract accurate cost and compare cost reports. Comprising of highly experienced team of Senior Quantity Surveyors we offer our Clients the option to utilize our expertise. Our team is well experienced in preparing Civil, Architectural and MEP BOQs.
The synchronized and collaborative nature of BIM allows for earlier clash detection between the numerous members of the design team. When areas of conflict are identified earlier, conflicts over space allocation are initiated and resolved sooner. Earlier clash detection therefore shortens the time required for building design and reduces costs associated with correcting clashes that were undetected during design reviews. Interference detection with BIM is as simple as identifying the elements that need to be checked and running a report. Centroid has been offering the numerous benefits of clash detection services to our clients ensuring that spatial issues are addressed before getting to site. This prevents site based delays and disputes, allows for ease of communication, faster approvals and sign off, in turn improving the outcome for all project stakeholders.
Centroid is fully capable to produce construction documents from the BIM model. Such BIM models are sufficiently modeled in a detailed manner so that we can generate construction documents directly from the model. Centroid's team of architects and engineers can produce construction document set as per requisite codes and standards.
Centroid's BIM team can take your LIDAR or Leica Scan Station data and transform it into a usable BIM model in Revit. Your high definition survey data will be meticulously combed to create a digital intelligent model for your team. When your project is in the early inception phases, having a precisely converted laser scan model to BIM will achieve an accurate base layer for clash resolution. With the latest in 3D laser scanning, your project will be taken to the next level. Our team has diverse experience in BIM and brings this expertise into your project.
While the Revit Family Editor provides a vehicle to create custom or manufacturer specific content, architects, engineers and planners do not always possess the necessary skills, or more importantly the time, to create this content on their own. There is a great demand from the AEC community for manufacturers to begin supplying their own products in a Revit format. Our BIM team is capable of creating 2D/3D parametric Revit families.
