SBI Builders Inc. uses cutting edge technology to leverage the process behind the construction process, and project management. Using the best construction analysis materials, our technology processes allow us to be more precise when it comes to either the pre qualification of subcontractors to assessing the construction model analysis of a building even before the project starts.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places.We incorporate the Building Information Modeling as a means of capturing the building life-cycle process. Building Information Modeling aids in collision detection at the initial stage, identifying the exact location of discrepancies. At SBI Builders we use this technology to protect our clients, reduce task conflicts on the job and save money.
Sub-contractors from every trade can input critical information into the model before beginning construction, with opportunities to pre-fabricate or pre-assemble some systems off-site. Waste can be minimised on-site and products delivered on a just-in-time basis rather than being stock-piled on-site. We use Green Halo online reporting to monitor the recycling process and waste management.
VICO 3D MODELING
SBI Builders uses VICO 3D Modeling to create virtual 3D profiles of our active projects. This system allows the project manager, architect and designer have access to a computer based image to see the conflicts, planning and scope of the project. This software improves better communication within the team. The 3D renderings provide exterior, site, sectional, interior and structural images for the client and owner to view the progress of the project.
We used MEP ( Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing) engineering to efficiently improve building system performance. This part of the design process also focuses on reaching goals for sustainability alongside integrating BIM. MEP creates a workflow process: Early conceptual design, detailed design and modeling, energy analysis, collaboration and visualization. Together with all of our engineering technology we use this technology to meet LEED rating building credit, Build it Green Credit and measure CalGreen ratings for housing.
