D&S Electrical Contractors, Inc. has been successfully designing, modeling, coordinating, prefabricating and constructing in Revit and Navisworks on all projects since 2009. We are early adopters of new technology. We develop the people and methods needed for successful BIM implementation. Our staff is trained in the latest software applications needed to meet both company and customer project objectives.
Our expertise in BIM strengthens teamwork among the trades, saves our clients time and money, and streamlines the construction process.
BIM gives you the ability to completely map a room before it is installed with the use of our model. But, we take it a step further...We input the mapped room into a robotic station, so our professionals in the field don’t have to measure once they are in the space. Once set up, all layout for racks, floor boxes, fixtures, and is done by shooting a laser. This delineates points from the model to the room or area.
This saves time and reduces congestion in high-traffic work areas because we are able to get in and get out as efficiently as possible. This allows our team to work within aggressively condensed schedules seamlessly and effectively. We are often able to start installing in areas before our project scheduled tasks begin. All of this greatly enhances our ability to drive value on your project.
One way D&S Electrical Contractors, Inc. continues to innovate with technology is to use the BIM model to produce a 3-D Operations and Maintenance Manual and As-built. We call this EBIM or Enhanced Building Information Modeling. Key benefits include:
Our continual investment in technology helps us eliminate wasted time. By automating repeatable tasks, we can streamline your project and allow our experts to focus on what they do best: constructing superior projects for you.
