  1. Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Building Information Modeling tools are the next generation of computer software used to simulate the design, construction and operation of a facility. The resulting model is a data-rich digital representation of the facility. From here views and data appropriate to various users’ needs can be extracted and analyzed to generate information that can be used to make decisions and improve the process of designing, constructing and planning a facility.

Dover USA Construction offers our clients, design community and other related professionals, BIM services to assist in generating and managing building data during its life cycle.

By leveraging BIM technology, Dover USA is assisting our clients achieve their project goals in a more cost-effective and efficient manner. Numerous benefits can be realized with this tool:

  1. Visualization
    • Dover USA utilizes BIM to further explain design intent and various conditions surrounding the project. Renderings, animations, 3D walkthroughs/flythrough, as well as sun/shadow studies. In addition, BIM visualization allows DOVER USA INCOPORATED to provide visual collision detection between major systems and components. All visualization services are done in-house throughout the life of the project.
  2. Collaboration
    • BIM creates a composite model from all design partners that preempts and resolves issues in the preconstruction phase
  3. Building Performance Modeling
    • BIM is able to estimate the cost of operating a facility and the ramifications of design options to better understand the ROI. (e.g., analyzes the impact of higher window glazing)
  4. Automated Takeoffs
    • A Building Information Model gives instant access to quantitative information. This instant information expedites preconstruction while providing accurate cost estimates to our clients. Furthermore, as design changes material quantities are instantly and universally undated on all documents.
  5. Collision Detection
    • BIM identifies constructability issues before they are an issue. (e.g., identifying ductwork running into structural members) This keeps projects on schedule.

 

  1. Data rich As-Built
    • Facility management can use BIM to understand the complexities of the building, lookup the location of all systems and components and store building systems cut sheets and product information.

 

  1. Green Construction
    • BIM can be used to perform whole building analysis, optimize energy efficiency, and work toward carbon neutrality earlier in the design process.
