In today’s rapidly evolving construction industry, embracing technological advancements is crucial to stay ahead of the curve. One such innovation that has revolutionized the way projects are designed, constructed and managed is Building Information Modeling (BIM). We understand the immense value that BIM brings to our clients and projects, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this transformative technology to enhance collaboration and streamline project delivery. We take great pride in announcing that we obtained the “CanBIM Company Certification – Level 1” in April 2021. This certification serves as a testament to our unwavering commitment to implementing BIM practices and showcases our expertise in leveraging this technology effectively. 


Enhancing Design And Analysis 


We leverage BIM to create comprehensive 3D models of our building designs, infusing them with intelligent data. For instance, when designing a steel structure, our engineers utilize a 3D environment to analyze and generate a design that meets regulatory standards. The BIM author then adds connections and final details necessary for fabrication. This approach allows for seamless coordination within a master BIM model of the entire facility, enabling engineers to identify and address potential construction issues in advance. 


Efficient Collaboration And Problem Resolution 


BIM technology serves as a powerful tool for collaboration and has proven invaluable as it facilitates seamless collaboration among various disciplines within FWS. Through digital platforms, our multidisciplinary teams can coordinate efforts, address challenges and make informed decisions remotely. Clients also benefit greatly from this technology, as they can virtually walk through the building before construction begins, providing opportunities for early changes and minimizing costs. With BIM, clients have a clear understanding of their projects’ outcomes, as they can experience the design through innovative technology. 


Optimized Project Planning 


Our extensive experience with BIM is evident in our portfolio of over hundred projects. We collaborate with vendors who utilize BIM for their components or work with others who employ our set of standards for 2D and 3D conversion. This ensures the accurate representation of our projects’ details. The utilization of BIM brings numerous efficiencies to the planning process, allowing for accurate asset data capture within the BIM model. This data becomes invaluable for the future implementation of preventive maintenance programs. 


We stand at the forefront of construction innovation by embracing BIM. By leveraging this technology, we enhance collaboration, streamline processes and deliver projects with optimized outcomes. From design to facility management, BIM enables us to transform our client’s visions into reality. Experience the future of construction with FWS and harness the benefits of BIM firsthand.
