Building Information Modeling
M. J. Harris knows that Building Information Modeling (BIM) improves overall project results. Through the life of the design process, constructability details and space restraints can cost the project time, money and quality if not foreseen and resolved. M. J. Harris uses our internal Virtual Construction department to implement BIM technology, and issues that would become critical during the construction process are predetermined and resolved with no project impact. We implement BIM into our project delivery, adapting the technology to best fit your specific project goals. M. J. Harris provides a wide range of BIM services including: 3D visualization and mockups, constructability analysis, conflict coordination, as-built creation, quantity extraction, site logistics, project phasing and facilitates management.
- 3D Visualization and Mockups - which allow review of the completed project before construction begins, which affords the team the ability to make educated design and value analysis decisions.
- 3D As‐Builts - provided by M. J. Harris at the conclusion of the project to assist you and your maintenance staff in managing the facility through its lifecycle.
- BIM Constructability Analysis (clash detection) - which in the preconstruction and construction process detects potential construction and design conflicts earlier, reducing and/or eliminating your exposure to change orders.
- 3D Coordination - which enhances installation quality, shortens installation duration, reduces waste and rework, and all but eliminates coordination‐related change orders.
