Building Information Modelling

At Enersolv we advocate for a move from 2D drawings to 3D models. Although the practice is gaining momentum in the architectural, engineering, and construction industry, thanks to tangible bottom-line returns from streamlined workflows, it is relatively new in the fields of HVAC, refrigeration and plumbing.


BIM captures reality and reduces rework of designs and specification

Our designs collate an array of inputs (aerial imagery, digital elevations, laser scans of infrastructure etc.) to compile and create highly accurate virtual design models. Our tools contain more information than a conventional drawing set, allowing each discipline to add to the project.

BIM improves productivity and streamlines implementation

Our process enables multiple disciplines share complex project information. This  facilitates true integration of sub-trades. Review and mark-up steps ensure everyone has provided input on the evolution of the design, and are ready to execute when the concept is finalized and moves forward into construction.

BIM helps simulate and visualize

Whether it’s visualizing sunlight during the seasons or calculating building energy performance, the intelligence offered by our use of BIM allows us to apply rules based on physics and best practices. We can not only analyze and model to achieve peak performance, we can condense knowledge and rules into a service that can run with the click of a button.

BIM eliminates conflicts and changes during construction

Our toolset helps automate clash detection of elements such as electrical conduit or ductwork that run into a beam. By modeling all of these things first, clashes are discovered early, and costly on-site conflicts can be reduced or eliminated. This ensures a perfect fit of elements that are manufactured off-site, allowing these components to be easily bolted into place rather than created on-site.

BIM provides for accurate project sequencing

With a model and an accurate set of sub-models for each phase during construction, the next step is a coordinated sequencing of steps, materials, and crews for a more efficient construction process. Complete with animations, the model facilitates coordination of steps and processes, delivering a predictable path to the expected outcome.

BIM helps you present perfectly

With the complete design captured, the model provides you with the ultimate communication tool to convey project scope, steps, and outcome. The fact that the design is fully 3D also means there are fewer steps to render impressive views and fly-throughs to showcase the space, and/or gain necessary regulatory approvals.
