Virtual Design & Construction / Building Information Modeling

Nibbi uses Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) to help deliver maximum value to our clients. Together with a knowledgeable team and various BIM and VDC software, we create fully integrated project environments that have the power to enhance the design and construction process dramatically. Our effective use of VDC and BIM  has a positive impact on the 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 VDC and BIM team has 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 a building’s existing conditions, which significantly minimizes inaccurate dimensioning and coordination around existing structures 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 design phases. Building the project virtually before we construct it in the field can save time and money while enhancing the quality and focusing on safety. Our goal is to deliver an exceptional building and excellent client experience.
