Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Building Information Modeling

BIM (Building Information Modeling) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure before ever turning over a shovel of dirt.

Harper has an in-house Virtual Building team that uses BIM to build a project virtually, in order to eliminate any costly errors ahead of time —streamlining the schedule and saving you from any potential delays or rework costs.

Benefits Include:

  • Increased efficiency and accuracy
  • 3D Estimating
  • 3D Design Coordination
  • 3D Building Coordination
  • 3D Site Coordination
  • 4D Scheduling
  • Laser Scanning
  • Virtual Reality
  • Virtual Tours for clients and community to garner project support

What People Are Saying

“The Building Information Model (BIM) flythrough provided our team with the information we needed to make good decisions. It was impressive and gave our Board of Trustees a realistic image of what the building would look like and how it would function. The BIM flythrough created excitement and support in our faculty and staff as well as our community.”
