Leveraging BIM for Takeoffs
Data—including BIM (building information modeling)—is only as good as a company’s ability to leverage this data. CG Visions’ BIM Pipeline is a Web-based, rules-driven estimation and material-management system that allows builders to use BIM data to help drive takeoffs. With BIM Pipeline, users can create master-plan estimates with delta BOM (bill of materials) reports for options, track lot-specific as-built reports, and track client customizations. An enhanced user experience includes data portals that allow builders to visualize tasks, home sales, and options. Constructech editors recognize BIM Pipeline’s ability to offer business intelligence optimized for the residential market.
