Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an all-encompassing acronym that means different things to different people. At Grunau, we’ve been using CAD software since the 1980s. As BIM technology improved, so did our use of newer software to integrate more aspects of our business. Grunau Fire Protection coordinates with General Contractors to incorporate fire protection systems into a virtual model of the building, and then uses embedded information to assist in designing, constructing, and maintaining buildings. The level of detail often includes underground utilities, above ceiling work, in-wall work, all pipe sizes, hangers, code required and/or maintenance clearance zones. This Building Information Modeling technology revolves around cost and risk reductions to provide better value to our customers.
Some of the BIM tools we’ve used on various projects include:
