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 long before they can adversely affect project budget or schedule. One primary use of BIM is for collision detection, allowing 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 the subcontractors 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.
At Zwick Construction, we value a culture of safety which protects all personnel and returns them safely home every night. When it comes to safety, our biggest priority is empowering our people to speak up when they see unsafe practices. When we work together to minimize and vocalize risks, we create safe sites. We hold everyone accountable for their own safety and the safety of those around them.
