Whether your project needs an extra hand in drawing production or full project BIM coordination and management, our extensive experience and broad background makes us a valuable asset to your team.
Having coordinated over $5 billion of new construction and tenant improvements across dozens of projects using BIM, from hospitals to high-rises, we have the expertise to efficiently coordinate your project to an appropriate Level of Development with a tailored BIM Execution Plan that will deliver the best ROI for all stakeholders.
Whether you are starting from a 2D set of drawings, adding more information to a working model, or using LiDAR point clouds, we can help you meet your modeling deliverables with the skills and best practices learned through many years of experience. We can support your team from our offices across the US or co-located at your project site or detailing office.
Laser scanning or LiDAR is a powerful productivity tool for documenting as-built conditions where access, geometry or precision are critical. Let our extensive LiDAR to as-built model experience work for you.
Facilities Maintenance costs far exceed the design and construction costs over the life of a building, so there are huge opportunities for adding value with good FM deliverables. We have created a wide variety of FM deliverables, from data rich Revit models, to COBie spreadsheets, and can help your team get the most out of every model.
Being able to use 3D modeling software is not enough to efficiently get through a project. Proper mentoring in BIM is a combination of both "hard" and "soft" skills. It starts with good training on the software; then, proven processes, communication methods, and tracking tools need to be implemented. Modulus Consulting, as experienced practitioners of BIM are uniquely suited to work hand in hand with your in-house staff to apply classroom training to real projects.
BIM involves technology, people and unique project requirements. This combination means that your project will have choices best answered by previous experience. We bring a depth of experienced-based knowledge and can work with teams to get the best return on your BIM investment.
A good model is the best visual communication tool for explaining what you want to build and how you want to build it. From 4D sequencing models for construction proposals to architectural renderings and photo-realistic fly-throughs for marketing, we have done it all.
The $1B Salesforce Tower skyscraper is slated to be the tallest and most expensive building in San Francisco, standing at 1,070 feet tall over its 61 floors and 1.4M sqft. Modulus was engaged by subcontractor CBF Electric to model their lighting panels and conduit.
Modulus Consulting is proud to have partnered with and provided BIM services to:
Modulus Consulting has worked on projects with the following project owners:
"Modulus Consulting has transformed our firm into true believers in the BIM coordination approach. For a successful BIM coordination, it is imperative to have a central driving force setting tasks and action items for each member of the design team. The team walked away from the experience with a clash free building, ready for fabrication.
Now well into the construction schedule, the BIM coordination has had a profound effect. Any outstanding issues have been ironed out. Our RFIs have been reduced dramatically, what would have been large change orders have been mitigated, and our project is ahead of schedule. Modulus has a great team of people with design and construction backgrounds, they know exactly what is required to get from A to Z. This is a rare set of expertise when it comes to BIM consulting, Modulus has the full package.”
Director of Development
"Clark Construction has utilized Modulus Consulting on some of our most complex design and construction projects. Modulus' goes beyond providing industry expertise during BIM coordination. They are a true coach during coordination meetings; a service that has lead our teams to effective, successful solutions. Modulus' ability to meet every deadline, including working endless hours to meet crunch time deadlines for critical approvals, has provided our projects with an unmatched service."
"Webcor utilized Modulus Consulting's modeling and coordination services as well as presentation fly-throughs on our San Francisco General Hospital Project. We have also benefited from their training and BIM Management services on other projects. Their understanding of constructability and MEPS systems separates them from other BIM service providers. I would highly recommend Modulus to any GC or subcontractor who is looking start, grow or just temporarily supplement their BIM capabilities."
Sr. Vice President
