Building Information Modeling
At Grote Enterprises, we have embraced Building Information Modeling (BIM) and 3-D virtual construction as integral parts of the mechanical construction process. We have actively participated in projects utilizing 3-D coordination and modeling since 2007. Currently, every major project at Grote Enterprises is included in the BIM workflow, from design and fabrication, to installation, and as-built models. BIM creates the opportunity for a virtual information model to be transmitted between design team members, contractors, and the owner. This allows each party to contribute based on their individual expertise, while tracking changes on a single model. This method greatly reduces information loss that typically occurs using traditional communication.
