SERVICES

Our services are aligned with the
4 Phases of Project Development:
 
1. Conceptualization & Analysis
2. Design & Documentation
3. Construction & Management
4. Operation & Maintenance
By integrating technologies like BIM and GIS into a Single Source of Truth (SSoT), coupled with applying our proprietary Methodology, our clients can smoothly migrate models and information from Planning into Design and Construction, and capture Commissioning information to feed an Asset Management effort for Operations and Maintenance.
In order to do this, our services include:
Existing Conditions
Assessment
Modeling
Programming
Implementation
Training
3D Visualization
Project Controls
Asset Management Integration
Conceptualization
& Analysis
Renovation
Operation &
Maintenance
SSoT
Design &
Documentation
Commissioning
Construction
& Management

Existing Conditions, or Reality Capture, is utilized to adequate and effectively asses and catalog the condition and number of assets to be implemented into a life cycle management system. To capture existing conditions, we combine High Definition Survey Laser Scanners (HDS Laser Scanning), also called Terrestrial LiDAR, along with Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and stationary photogrammetry.

Scripts and algorithms paired with specialized software transform 

the pixels of data into a usable and consumable database

repository of information that is then either transformed into a

3D model, or spliced and shared in a simplified version containing

onlythe data  our clients need for their  application.  Hybridizing

UAS and Laser Scanning workflows effectively can greatly reduce

the cost and time required to capture, process,  and apply the

data compared to more traditional means and methods. 

The Assessment serves to identify current problems, potential pitfalls, and the needed and desired improvements in an organizations current system, along with identifying all key stakeholders that need to be involved moving forward to eliminate current problems and provide solutions and effective workflows.  An assessment can vary depending on the client's unique situation, but typically includes: 

  • Discovery / Company Analysis

  • 5 Year BIM Plan

    • Vision & Mission Statement

    • BIM Mandate

    • Short, Medium and Long Term Goals

    • Rollout Strategy

  • BIM Contract Language and RFPs​

  • Criteria for the Selection of BIM Projects

Our Modeling related services includes BIM, along with Civil 3D, Point Clouds, and associated BIM reporting for visualization, design, forecasting, and reporting.  A model is very powerful when utilized to its full capabilities, and PDBiM has a highly expereinced team of BIM techs, designers, and project managers to assist you with reaching the model's full potential for your project and application.

  • Paper / CAD / Reality Capture to BIM

  • Interference Checks / Clash Detection Reports

  • Construction Schedule Integration (4D)

  • Quantity Takeoffs (5D)

Implementation of models and their information generally consists of creating a Standards Manual, and Support Files.

Standards Manuals include detailed information on: Roles and Responsibilities, Processes, Procedures, Workflows, Best Practices, and Modeling Techniques.  Support Files contain a variety of relevant Templates. 

Project Controls is an important part of the life cycle (WHY?) and includes Program Management, Project Management, Estimating, Scheduling, Progress Control, and Cost Control.  At PDBIM we assist you with each aspect by (HOW DO WE PROVIDE SERVICES FOR THESE THINGS?)

Standards Manuals include detailed information on: Roles and Responsibilities, Processes, Procedures, Workflows, Best Practices, and Modeling Techniques.  Support Files contain a variety of relevant Templates. 

TRAINING

An important aspect of system confidence and organizational change management when adopting new workflows and technologies is training.  Training your personnel on standards and procedures, best practices, and the software and workflows is important to optimize efficiency and implement effectively.  PDBiM offers various in house training programs for affected stakeholders including software training for:

3D VISUALIZATION

Would you like to have 3D Visualization for Forecasting, Marketing, Training, or other purposes?  We can create high resolution, like-reality renderings and walkthroughs, and showcase them through Virtual and Augmented Reality.​
