BIM Modeling

With Building Information Modeling we utilize scan data to produce scaled 3D models of existing buildings including the electrical, mechanical, and structural elements/ Within the model contains information of building element quantity, types, and Product information such as model numbers and cost

3D Laser Scanning

Scanning is the quickest way to capture the real time measurements of an existing building. Scanning is especially handy for large scale and/or abnormal shaped buildings.

Other uses include verifying existing conditions in hard to reach areas, such as the sprinkler system in a ceiling or the structural elements to a roof.

2D Measured Surveys

A more cost efficient method for obtaining as built drawings for your building is through traditional field measuring. HDT Utilizes Laser Distance meters, and old fashioned tape measures to collect data on existing layouts of buildings. This method is still utilized on residential and smaller commercial buildings

VDC Modeling

Virtual Design & Construction Modeling utilizes the same technology as BIM from for the design process. It involves designing projects utilizing this technology or taking 2D CAD Drawings and converting into a 3D digital model. This process allows contractors to "virtually" construct their building allowing for clash detection of building systems that otherwise may not be detected with 2D Drawings. This process minimizes costly problems during physical construction and minimizing change orders necessary to retrofit the building systems into the structure

Tenant Buildouts

Are you starting a new business and need to pull permits for occupancy? We offer commercial architectural drawings helping customers to get necessary clearances from municipal government as well as various regulation departments.
