Broderick Architects is equipped with the latest BIM (Building Information Model) technology. This sophisticated technology is not only useful to create 3D drawings and walkthroughs of the interior and exterior of your spaces, but to better design and coordinate all the data associated with your project with all members of the project design team. This helps to better visualize and convey the complexity of your project before it gets built. Typically we use BIM for generation of space plans, floor plans, sections, elevations, details, door and window schedules, coordination of structural components and mechanical equipment, and real-time virtual 3D walkthroughs.
While not all of our advanced capabilities are used for every project, we try to incorporate fully implemented BIM into most medium-to-large sized residential, commercial and ecclesiastical projects. Compared with traditional drafting or CAD used by many architects, BIM models have been very effective at streamlining our design process and help prevent costly design problems that are otherwise only identified during construction. See On The Boards for some more examples of our BIM and 3D modeling capabilities.
