BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING BIM
Friedmutter Group has standardized our design and documentation process on Autodesk’s REVIT technology for all phases of projects, starting with Conceptual Design through Construction Documents since 2005. REVIT Architecture and REVIT Structure are the premier BIM products provided by Autodesk. As the REVIT BIM application for the various disciplines is further enhanced, we are requiring our major consultants (Structural, Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing) to produce their documents using the REVIT series. The REVIT models have become a virtual proxy to the real building. Coordination between disciplines has been greatly enhanced as the virtual model is capable of clash detection between systems. In addition, the ability to dissect the model has led to a drastic decrease in RFI’s. Our long-time commitment to the training and implementation of REVIT has provided us with extensive experience with large complex REVIT models. Friedmutter Group developed what is considered to be the largest REVIT project in the world: The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is over 7.5 million square feet and has been fully documented in REVIT.
