The use of BIM has transformed the construction industry. The ability to create a virtual model of the building project allows us to vastly improve our ability to interpret and communicate the design with the owner, architect, engineers, subcontractor, suppliers and building officials.

From preliminary design through project close-out VJS uses BIM strategies to benefit the cost, quality, and duration of the project. As well as BIM modeling specialists, our personnel are trained in BIM in our estimating department, project management, as well as field superintendents.  

 

 

Enhancing VJS’ Projects with the Use of BIMBadger Middle School Building Information Modeling (BIM), VJS Construction Services, Milwaukee, WI

VJS Construction Services has successfully implemented BIM technology into many of our projects. The following projects are listed below:

  • Oak Creek East Middle School
  • Badger Middle School
  • Saint John’s On The Lake
  • Rogers Memorial Hospital/Herrington Recovery Center


How Our Clients Benefit
On the Oak Creek East Middle School project, the team leveraged the power of BIM. We used this model during budgeting, bidding, scoping and construction. The 3D model gave us and the subcontractors a whole new view of the project from Schematic Design through project closeout. As a result, project budgets were within 1% of actual and contingency dollars used during the project were lower than ever before. Through the use of new technologies and a collaborative approach, 95% of the construction contingency was returned to the district to reinvest in the project.

Benefits of BIM Technology

  • Facilitates the visualization of the entire building
  • Increases the design collaboration and communication between the members team
  • Construction planning and management by combination of design and construction
  • Ease in producing of high quality, accurate and precise construction documents
  • Conflict detection between various design elements before the starting of construction phase
  • Accurate extraction of material quantities etc. helps in elimination of waste which results not only in cost saving but speeds the construction process
  • Improves quality and accuracy of the entire project
  • Acts as a digital database in which change in one view is automatically reflected throughout the drawing in entire project
  • Site staging
  • Change order and schedule control - 4D visual scheduling
  • 5D estimating / using the 3D model to develop estimates
