BMC prides itself in the capabilities of our Detailing Department. Our large staff includes seasoned veterans with an average of 20 years of field experience working side-by-side with the best and brightest university degree-educated detailers and drafters to give BMC a full range of detailing expertise for every project. Our detailing department uses the most state-of-the-art 3D modeling software to generate intelligent building models for BIM management and to accelerate our sheet metal and piping fabrication.
BIM (Building Information Modeling)
Our detailing department has proven to be an industry leader in the Bay Area for utilizing BIM to manage our building data during pre-construction trade coordination. We use Navisworks software to manage clash detection, coordinating our virtual models with other contractors, which is critical to identifying conflicts during the design phase rather than out in the field after construction begins.
BMC uses state-of-the-art modeling software to create 3D building models that contain detailed intelligence on all aspects of the design, right down to the manufacturer’s specs for the parts and equipment being used. BMC uses Autodesk’s CAD-MEP+ software (formerly CAD-MECH and CAD-DUCT) to generate accurate models for HVAC, process piping and plumbing fabrication, and BIM coordination.
