VIATechnik is a leading BIM and virtual design & construction firm that provides building information modeling services to electrical contractors, low voltage trades, and electrical utility contractors. Using 3D BIM modeling software alongside our proprietary BIM management tools, we utilize our clients’ project information such as design drawings, cut sheets, fabrication practices, and many more to deliver a data-rich electrical BIM model. The software tools we use include Revit, Edgewise, Navisworks, Precogs, and Revizto.
With BIM, electrical contractors can build 3D models of power systems, lighting, duct banks, power feeders, branch circuits, and many more. Through a coordinated model, electrical contractors can then avoid material waste, and also prefabricate their projects and save time and cost in the field.
Better overall project coordination
Faster pace to completion
Ability to detect potential issues before they are realized in the field
Organized tasks and schedules for field team execution
We take the following steps to ensure that the electrical system models we build are constructible and represent design intent:
Create a project-specific BIM execution plan
Conduct a constructability review and client construction practices review
Set up the project model
Create a base model
Coordinate clashes against other trades
Produce layout sheets for the field
Update model and drawings based on addenda/revisions
Depending on the agreed-upon scope, our electrical BIM services may include the following:
Electrical model creation to the required LOD
Clash report generation and coordination
Point cloud as-built modeling
Bill of materials (BOM) generation
When clients work with us early on in the project and properly scope out the required services, they can expect the following from our team:
BIM utilization to discover and resolve issues
Design validation to confirm design intent
Clash avoidance and constructability implementation
Spatial coordination and code review
We’re always open to discussing product design work or partnership opportunities
What is BIM Services? Building Information Modeling (BIM) software has gained popularity over the past several years as the new standard for the design, documentation, and execution of construction projects. …
Many people commonly place Revit and BIM in the same category, where BIM = Revit, and vice versa. However, the concept of BIM vs. Revit is moot. Building Information Modeling …
Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software such as AutoCAD has been used for several decades to accurately design detailed 2D and 3D models of various product types as well as building blueprints. …
Antecedent to the rise in popularity of Building Information Modeling (BIM), commercial buildings were designed and developed using CAD technology – but now, the value that BIM can provide to …
Our mission is to drive better alignment and collaboration between architects, engineers, general contractors, and business owners - the parties involved in complex construction projects.
