Efficient Design | Time-Saving

From a rendering to reality, Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the process of designing a building collaboratively using one coherent system of computer-based models. Offering a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility, BIM is a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle.

Benefits of Virtual Design Construction

BIM is an information model that transfers easily between architects and structural engineers to main contractors and subcontractors; then on to the building owner or facility manager. This eliminates the chance of information being degenerated or lost in transition.

BIM creates and manages all the information on your project. The digital description of every asset simplifies the planning and construction process. Today, with 3D modeling we are able to incorporate spatial relationships of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing elements. We can identify other quantifiers such as light analysis, quantities and properties of components, and manufacturer’s details, all in a single plan.

Two-dimensional plans may not be consistent among various floorplan attributes. BIM allows you to extract information that is more accurate in its geometry. Defining objects in relation to one another allows for related objected to being amended automatically as changes happen.

Virtually any project small to large can benefit from BIM and prefabrication. Kenny Electric offers skilled CAD tradespeople with BIM, fabrication, and production planning experience. Kenny uses the most sophisticated technology on the market today including a total station positioning system.

BIM and the Bottom Line

In the building process when timing, budget, and manpower are challenged BIM aids in staging project work by highlighting conflicts. Contractors can see a visual of the building project prior to its construction. Each trade can input critical information into the model prior to starting.

Revit Compliments BIM

As a single application built for Building Information Modeling, Revit is a great resource with features for architectural design, MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing), and structural engineering and construction. Kenny Electric pairs Revit with eVolve a program that translates the design model into the prefab kits, sheets, and material listings that assist with the ordering of needed materials.

The Prefab Advantage

Kenny Electric can save time, money, and space with prefabricated electrical assemblies for wall and underground systems. With electric material sourcing, assembly, packaging, quality inspection, and delivery to the site, Kenny provides a perfectly timed efficient installation. Prefab electrical benefits include:

  • Optimized use of on-site labor

  • Improved safety and quality assurance

  • Minimized disruption to any occupied areas

  • Reduce Waste Removal Costs

  • Reduced levels of trade stacking

  • Reduced installation time
