Building Information Modeling (BIM)

GLS has participated in the Building Information Modeling (BIM) Process for Brookhaven Labs, Forest Labs, Suffolk County Community College and Stony Brook Medicine and others. The 3D Modelling has encouraged teamwork between the various trades to ensure that all systems have the proper location and clearance from other systems.

BIM impacts:

  • Construction design and build
  • Finance
  • Management
  • In-use operational information

What it does for buildings:

  • Makes design easier
  • Makes coordination simpler
  • Ensures construction is safer
  • Analyzes energy use
  • Easier to manage and maintain in the long run
