BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING BIM
Friedmutter Group has standardized our design and documentation process on Autodesk’s Revit technology for all phases of projects, starting with Conceptual Design through Construction Documents since November of 2005. Revit Architecture and Revit Structure are the premier BIM products provided by Autodesk. Revit MEP has been the latest product to be released with a stable version for extremely large and complex project types as we find in the Hospitality and Gaming industry. As the Revit BIM application for the various disciplines is further enhanced, we are requiring our major consultants (Structural, Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing) to produce their documents using the Revit 2012 series. The Revit models have become a virtual proxy to the real building. Coordination between these disciplines has been enhanced ten- fold as the virtual model is capable of clash detection between systems and the dissection of the model has led to a drastic decrease in RFI’s. Our commitment to the training and implementation of REVIT has provided us with considerable experience with large complex Revit models.
Friedmutter Group maintains what is considered to be the largest Revit project in the world: The Cosmopolitan Resort & Hotel, located on the Las Vegas Strip, is over 7.5 million square feet and has been fully documented in Revit.
