Our Electrical BIM Coordination Services

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.


Benefits of Electrical BIM Coordination

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

Prefabrication


VIATechnik’s Electrical Coordination Process

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


What’s Included in Our Electrical BIM Coordination Services

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

Coordination drawings

Prefabrication models

Spool drawings

Point cloud as-built modeling

Family creation

Bill of materials (BOM) generation


Electrical Coordination Services

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
