Our Innovation

Using the most advanced technology tools in the industry, Barnhill’s virtual construction services provide clients with the highest level of quality in the most cost efficient manner. We provide:

Scheduling & Phasing

Incorporating schedule and phasing parameters into BIM, all project stakeholders can review a graphic schedule that is easily understandable. Virtual modeling allows us to confirm our schedule assumptions by building the project virtually before we build it in the real world.

Estimating & Preconstruction

BIM models can be used to generate quantity takeoffs and assist in the creation of cost estimates throughout the lifecycle of a project. The project team is able to see the cost effects of design decisions and proposed changes throughout all phases of the project. This approach offers reliable information to support better decision-making and curb budget overruns due to project modifications.

Mechanical Trade Coordination & Constructability Review

Three-dimensional coordination of building trades provides the visual image of a completed building. An aggressive constructability review using 3D coordination for clash detection minimizes change orders and costly redesign work. By carefully reviewing system interaction in the office, we ensure seamless installation in the field.

BIM to FiM

Recording as-built building data into a BIM model provides facility managers with easy access to information. This information can be used for future maintenance needs, providing significant savings to the costs of the building. Our process eliminates the storage of massive amounts of paper drawings and puts everything at the owner’s fingertips via the cloud.
