For more than two decades, Existing Conditions has been providing existing conditions  building surveys, 3D laser scanning, and building information modeling (BIM) throughout the public, private, and non-profit sectors. Once you’ve had the power of BIM working at your advantage, it’s easy to see why it’s relied on for such sensitive and important data. 

If you’re new to the building information modeling process, you might be curious about what makes it such a useful technology. Keep reading to find out!

The benefits of BIM

Different industries can benefit from BIM in different ways. But there are a handful of benefits that extend to every industry. Most notably, the accuracy and precision you get from this process as opposed to others. By starting off on the right foot, you can eliminate major headaches and disruptions throughout the course of a project. 

Efficiency

BIM also enables any project to run more efficiently because you know you have accurate and reliable data to rely on. That means you won’t waste time or money on additional measurements or have to shut down your operation for the process to take place. 

Improve Assets

Building information modeling can help you improve assets and their value. For example, in multifamily residential construction, BIM is used to harness data to maximize rental income and perform intelligent needs assessments. Another example is the use of BIM for stadium construction. Using reality capture and building information models, assets are improved, risks are minimized, and you’re able to create the best experience for fans.

Data and Security

There are also many benefits to BIM when it comes to data and security. Critical facilities can return to security first principles with our 3D laser scanning and BIM technology. Using the information our services provide, you’re able to strengthen data centers and command centers. Medical facilities can also benefit from BIM as they’re able to use it to maintain rigorous privacy standards.

Remote Access

BIM can drastically reduce site visit times because it allows you to perform remote inspections of a property and measure while offsite. When you have a precise digital blueprint of a structure or object at your fingertips, you can trust that you’re making well informed decisions about a project even when you’re off site.

Each year, Existing Conditions measures and models approximately 40,000,000 square feet of space. Our field operatives are more than just hired hands – they hold real-world experience in the architecture and real estate industries that allow them to truly understand projects from a customer’s perspective. And now it’s your turn.
