Building Information Modeling (BIM) Services

Building information modeling (BIM) is one of the most transformative enhancements to the process of design, construction and maintenance of large scale projects over the past 40 years.  It provides a virtual representation of a facility’s physical and functional characteristics in 3D, 4D and 5D.  Furthermore, BIM facilitates greater levels of collaboration and interoperability within the design environment to improve decision making, save time and cut costs.

F3 provides BIM services to support all phases of a project lifecycle including:

  • BIM in project conception and initiation
  • BIM in project engineering
  • BIM in project construction
  • BIM in project operation and maintenance
  • BIM Service Experience
