    Connecting grand vision and a challenging site

    The Beck Group began with Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools from the earliest stages of conceptual design to capture, explore, and refine ideas to solve a complex urban design challenge.

    In a compact urban area, BIM helped Beck meet a number of challenging cost, square-footage, and sustainability requirements, saving 1000 hours of design time and $1 million in iterations.

    Hundreds of iterations on the building design and more than 50 alternatives for the curtain wall were explored virtually to optimize the design.

    Energy analysis tools within the design workflow helped the team to consider sustainability from the very beginning. With a connected process, the team was able to discover non-traditional alternatives that resulted in cost and schedule savings.
