Building Information Modeling / Virtual Design & Construction

Nibbi uses Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) to help deliver maximum value to our clients. Together with a knowledgeable team and the use of various BIM and VDC software, we create fully integrated project environments that have the power to dramatically enhance the design and construction process.  Our effective use of BIM and VDC has had a positive impact on the overall quality of our projects through:

  • Reduced cost and schedule risks since conflicts are found earlier
  • Improved communication for effective team collaboration
  • More reliable schedule and clear work scope
  • Better informed decisions for stakeholders
  • Reduced costs and schedule risks since conflicts are found earlier
  • Elimination of field discrepancies
  • Encouraged coordination among the sub-contractors
  • More prefabrication opportunities

Nibbi’s BIM and VDC team have successfully leveraged new technologies like robotic total station, drones and reality capture within existing and occupied facilities.  Employing new technologies by Innovative Technology Solutions that utilizes laser scanning and 3-D imaging, we create 3-D models and working drawings of existing conditions of a building which greatly minimizes issues of inaccurate dimensioning and coordination around existing structure or systems.

Nibbi begins the VDC process at the earliest available opportunity when design changes have the least cost and schedule impacts. The mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems can be coordinated in the collaboration software Naviswork during the early phases of design. By building the project virtually before we build it in the field, we can save time and money while enhancing the level of quality and focusing on safety.  Our goal is to deliver an exceptional building and excellent client experience.
