BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING
Future Fox is capable of designing any project from beginning to end. We pivot around the progressive design concept called Building Information Modeling (BIM). This approach to design gives clients a more efficient and data-centric end product.
The images to the left numbered 1-4.
#1. Using Infraworks we can extract surface data from virtually anywhere on the planet. This is an inexpensive way to collect surface data for conceptual designs
#2. Surface data collected (Infraworks, Surveyor) is worked with using Civil3d. We can produce parcel layouts, grading plans and subsurface infrastructure designs as per MMCD standards. Using shared coordinate points, our civil designs can then be linked with Revit (Image #3). This can help with structural designers looking for elevation accuracy.
#3 From the civil elevation data, structural models are created. These models are designed in wireframe and at a scale of 1:1 for maximum accuracy. Designing structural plans in two and three-dimension offers many benefits including enhanced visual perspective, clash detection, increased speed/efficiency and seamless material schedules. Even further, these models can be used with the software program Insight and energy analysis reports can be produced. The models can even be used in other modeling softare programs and advanced texturing, modeling and renderings can be produced (image #4).
