Barton Malow Credits Constructible Models with Success on Recent Project

February 6, 2019

"Constructible isn't just a buzz word. We're not a broker. We're builders. Tekla Structures gave the level of detail to 'build it virtually' in collaboration with the field teams and the confidence on the site, the model would be exactly what was getting built." - Matt Hedke, Barton Malow 

Barton Malow is a General Contractor and Construction Manager based in Southfield, Michigan that is known for their work on commercial, industrial and healthcare projects as well as sports stadiums around the United States. With a slogan like "Building Innovative Solutions", it's no surprise that Barton Malow is known for utilizing technology to make their projects more efficient and cost-effective. This use of technology was recently highlighted in Informed Infrastructure, an industry publication known in the US as 'the construction engineer's source for projects, products, and technology'.

In the article: Constructible Models: Lead to Time and Cost Efficiencies in Building a Particleboard Plant, Barton Malow is quoted as being an industry leader who is "advancing Building Information Modeling (BIM) to bring added value and efficiency to their projects." Informed Infrastructure gives a case study of the ARAUCO plant that Barton Malow recently completed in Grayling, Michigan and explain how their truly constructible models improved the entire project from quantity take off to pour planning and through to completion.
