BIM & VDC
BIM for Framing (BIM-F)
Optimize purchase order estimates, craft precise shop drawings, review virtual mockups, address RFIs on design details, plan accurate layouts, perfect stud placement & sizing, confirm correct heights, assess equipment needs, and enhance site logistics.
The objective is to give the framer a seat at the table with engineers and architects during construction coordination to resolve any constructability issues and ultimately reduce rework.
Getting Started with BIM
Achieving project success relies on framing contractors fully embracing the BIM process. Allow our tools and teams to be an integral part of your process. At VIATechnik, we are well-equipped to assist you in developing a long-term strategy and creating a comprehensive BIM-F execution plan.
Utilizing 3D models results in better walls, reduced waste, and minimized contingencies. Modeling increases the amount of information framers have access to, such as other MEPF elements and how they interact with the walls. Additionally, 3D modeling enables you to create models for both 4D (scheduling) and 5D (cost) purposes.
BIM-F Shop Drawings
We specialize in framing shop drawings (tickets) generated from BIM-F, ensuring detailed representations of how walls should be assembled and where penetrations are located. VIATechniks BIM to shop drawing process facilitates precise planning, coordination, and communication amongst all trades. These drawings reduce errors, and ensure that framed walls are detailed accurately and efficiently, ultimately resulting in a positive return on investment.
Framing Contractor Deliverables
Our framing shop drawings contain precise measurements, materials specifications, and details for all required framing elements. These drawings are typically customized to fit the specific requirements of a particular project. Framing is an essential aspect of any construction project, and it must be coordinated with other trades such as electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and more. Shop drawings help ensure that these various systems are constructible with the framing.
