BIM is a tool that can be utilized throughout the entire project lifecycle.  
Cadforce helps your team develop BIM standards, specifications and templates, to ensure robust integration with existing and future data and project management services. Our professionals show how your team can use BIM as a tool throughout the entire project lifecycle, including master planning, program analysis, project definition, design and construction, and facility management.  
Program Managers can utilize BIM at the beginning to assist with the project definition phase. CADFORCE develops BIMs to support master planning and program analysis. This development continues into blocking and stacking diagrams and conceptual design. Using our BIM standards will ensure that the BIM database is correctly developed and established, with required updates throughout the project lifecycle.  
Construction Managers use our service to ensure that the BIM follows detailed specifications to their requirements throughout the construction process. CADFORCE understands the requirements of the Construction Manager in the design and building processes and can support the BIM requirements for the owner’s requirements.  
Modeling in all disciplines  
In 2006, CADFORCE made a strategic decision to move from CAD support to Building Information Modeling (BIM). Since then, CADFORCE has modeled hundreds of BIMs for architects, engineers, and general and trade contractors in all parts of the world.  
Our philosophy for BIM support services is to help our clients leverage their professional expertise. Builders use BIM as a tool for virtual construction services, so in addition to creating BIMs for builders with the necessary requirements in place, we have developed a robust BIM management program which integrates all of the data management requirements of modeling, assuring that the BIM functions as an integrated and stable tool, usable throughout the project lifecycle. This is a trademark of CADFORCE’s management methodology, understanding the client’s needs and developing a creative and innovative partnership.  
Our BIM expertise allows us to leverage our knowledge of the requirements of all AEC disciplines. Beginning with our skill sets in the development of Architectural BIM, we have knowledge in the requirements of engineering models, including structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire-protection. We’ve also developed specialty BIMs for Pneumatic-Tube systems, Uni-Strut, and CurtainWall models. Our multiple BIM services apply to software domain requirements as well, as we have expertise in Revit, Tekla and Bentley BIM software as well as others such as TriPlan and ADT.  
BIM Standards  
If you’re planning to use BIM you need to develop BIM standards. Unlike CAD standards, BIM standards require knowledge of the BIM database and how it will integrate with not just your systems, but all the project systems and various database requirements. The BIM is the virtual building for the project and should be automatically integratable into all project systems within the projects team, including design specifications, Code requirements, design and construction schedules, fabrication, commissioning, security, and building monitoring. Not developing a BIM to the entire project and lifecycle system requirements is missing the entire value of BIM.  
Model assessment  
CADFORCE provides BIM peer-level review model assessments for architects, builders, and owners. Our methodology leverages our continuous experience to develop model appraisal for all your needs. As an architect if you receive BIM from another designer, CADFORCE has developed appraisal services which delineates the model’s requirements and creates an assessment spreadsheet to determine if the BIM meets your needs or if significant rework is required. We do the same for builders receiving design models, and owners receiving builder models. CADFORCE’s model assessment service is an efficient way to determine model adequacy and requirements, insuring successful BIM integration.  
We can help your firm take on your first BIM project today
Whether you’re just starting your first project in BIM or want to leverage the database tools that exist within the model, CADFORCE can help you realize your goals. From strategic planning beginning with BIM specifications, to a BIM execution plan, into the management of multiple BIM project models, CADFORCE can develop a technology implementation and migration plan to suit your requirements. Understanding your needs and requirements, CADFORCE provides the value of solutions in addition to specified deliverables. Our clients engage us to translate their needs into requirements for creating and managing the virtual building process, as well as for our expertise in developing the data requirements of the Building Information Model. We build models for not just the design or construction process, but for the entire project lifecycle.
