Building Information Modeling The Benefits of BIM Technology

M. B. Kahn uses building information modeling (BIM) technology in preconstruction, construction planning, scheduling, and coordination. With BIM, constructability issues can be identified and addressed before they happen, resulting in reduced errors throughout the project. In return, this lowers construction costs and helps keep the project on schedule. The benefit is significant savings that greatly exceed the cost of the BIM study.

Lowering CostA Valuable Advantage to BIM

BIM allows us to provide you with a data rich 3D model, a discrepancy report, a collision report, and a quantity survey report. These tools will enable us to improve trade coordination and cost control, which ultimately reduces the project’s risk and lowers the overall cost. BIM can be useful for:

  • Virtual walkthroughs and flybys
  • Collision detection studies (coordination)
  • Constructability visualisation analysis
  • As-built drawings
  • Operations & maintenance capabilities
  • Construction scheduling & sequencing visualization

What People Are Saying

“I had the opportunity to work with M. B. Kahn on the building of two facilities for Kiswire – a major 609,000 SF project in Newberry, South Carolina [and] a new plant in Pine Bluff, Arkansas… I worked with them for over three years on these projects and had great success with them… they ran a very good project and were always there when we had questions or concerns.  They are willing to work with you and keep you informed of any of their concerns or needs. I always knew what was happening and where the project was, regarding the time and schedule. If I ever have another project, they would be the first I called to quote the job.”
