BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING (BIM)
Preconstruction Phase: NVC uses BIM/NavisWorks in-house 3-D technology for trade scheduling, scope clarification, and clash detection of building systems as part of the coordination review process. BIM is an exceptional tool for both clients and trades, helping them to clearly understand design intent, and in turn, improve the overall project quality while minimizing changes in the field.
Construction Phase: Field staff are equipped with BIM360 Field Management software that integrates quality, safety, and commissioning. Field staff using iPads are able to access and coordinate all project information needed for the job, real-time, without having to return to the office or job site trailer. Owners, design consultants, and trade contractors are also able to access specific areas of the project documentation site, including the most up-to-date Construction Documents, Meeting Minutes, Punch-list Coordination, and more. Other documentation created and stored in the BIM360 project record include Submittals, RFI’s, Quality Control Logs, Weekly Progress Photos, Daily Reports, Schedules, Safety Documents, Close-Out Documents, and Punchlist.
LEED / Sustainability
LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in 2000 and provides verifications that a building was designed and constructed using environmentally friendly and conservation strategies. The certification is divided into four distinct levels of achievement – Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum, which recognizes performance in key areas such as: Water Efficiency, Sustainable Sites, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, Innovation, Regional Priority, Location and Transportation, and Integrative Process.
NVC has helped several clients achieve LEED certified projects, and we are confident in our ability to deliver sustainable building programs and navigate the ever-changing certification process. Whether you are pursuing LEED Certification or would simply like to incorporate responsible and sustainable design and construction methods that provide a financial return, our real-world experience will benefit your project.
