Building Information Modeling

Our extensive construction experience complemented by new BIM model coordination software enables us to meet the complex needs of any construction site in a timely manner, while providing early intelligence to address problems before they can impact on-the-ground progress. This pre-construction coordination helps minimize costs related to re-work in the field, RFI fixes, expediting, demolition, etc.

Summit Steel Works successfully deployed BIM coordination on a recent landmark project (40+ million contract on a 6+ Billion project, coordinating 900+ tons of steel), and holds these assets and experience at the ready to support your next project.

BIM Capabilities:

  • Export steel models (dwg, ifc) and import into BIM coordination software to share with other trades
  • Perform clash detection tests to coordinate with other trades on project
  • Coordinate construction sequencing for smoother scheduling and installation workflow

This video illustrates how BIM gives our engineers insights into real-world concerns, as seen in Summit's work for U.C. Berkeley's Haas School of Business.
