Building Information Modeling

BR+A is committed to being a leader in the engineering of MEP/FP systems for technical projects using a BIM platform. We presently have several million square feet of projects under design that are utilizing Revit MEP 2013 and AutoCAD MEP 2013 for Building Information Modeling and 3D Design, as well as Autodesk Navisworks Manage 2013 for collision detection and 3D Design Review.

With our competition in the beginning stages of BIM software use, we are one of very few MEP Engineers to have a large-scale healthcare project completed which was designed completely utilizing a BIM concept. The Glickman Tower at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio is a new 300,000 SF state-of-the-art building featuring a roof-top helipad and houses the Glickman Urological Institute and the Department of Nephrology and Hypertension. This $60,000,000 project, completed in August of 2008, was designed and constructed using BIM software.

Our real-world experience has proven that buildings designed using BIM are being constructed faster, with fewer conflicts and reduced change orders than similar “traditionally” designed projects. Additional projects that are currently in the design process or will be designed utilizing a BIM concept include the following:  

  • BOSTON COLLEGE – Stokes Commons / Campus Green
  • CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL COLORADO – New East Tower
