BIM-Enabled Layout: A New Way to Get the Job Done

BIM (Building Information Modeling) is transforming the way construction projects are planned and managed. However, the data from these 3D models can be further maximized through the use of this information in the field. Traditional construction methods lose the accuracy of the Building Information Model when implemented in the field. Valuable time and accuracy can be lost by manually scaling distances, calculating angles from plans, turning angles with theodolites, and pulling tapes to measure distances.

To connect the inherent accuracy of a fully coordinated BIM with the final building product, Trimble and Tekla make this information available for use by construction professionals to automate the layout, erection and construction of their projects.
