USING THE BEST TECHNOLOGIES
Virtual Design & Construction
At Zwick Construction, we strive to stay at the forefront of the industry by using the best technologies. This helps us provide the highest quality and most efficient projects to owners. Employees are trained frequently on the use of these technologies, and those technologies are applied to all projects.
BIM substantially reduces the amount of rework required on a project, by identifying potential issues before the building is even constructed.
BIM has completely revolutionized the construction industry by shaving 10-40% from traditional completion schedules. The process almost certainly will save significant amounts of time on the project.
BIM can identify problems before they can adversely affect project budget or schedule. For example, collision detection allows MEP subcontractors to ensure that no piping will intersect with structural elements of the building.
BIM technology allows owners, architects, and Zwick to communicate visually, eliminating design surprise. It increases communication between trade partners and management team by visually establishing scope and requirements.
Building Information Modeling (BIM)
For certain projects, we utilize Building Information Modeling, programs that produce and manage construction and design information. We combine this powerful visualization technology with industry-leading talent. BIM technologies help identify issues before anything is built.
On many of our construction sites, we use drones to collect valuable data and identify potential issues early into construction. They give our project teams the ability to do QA/QC for their jobsite on an overall, large scale while allowing them to effectively document and mitigate risk early on. Through drone technologies, our teams have been able to run vertical façade flights, topography take-offs, cut and fill analyses, and 360 walkthroughs that integrate with construction software, in addition to typical flights.
Effectively utilizing construction software leads to successful projects and open communication.
Zwick employs professional software such as PROCORE, P6 Schedule, and Bluebeam PDF editor to assist us in the process.
