Definition: A building information model (BIM) is a 3D visual database of your project.

Value: BIM contains all the design and construction details required to virtually see and build your project without mobilizing a single construction crew. Owners can now see the future and make decisions with confidence.

Method: Epic Scan uses an industry-leading scan-to-BIM process that saves you time and money. Using 3D laser scanning, we develop a BIM of your existing project using your specifications and industry standards. Additionally, we provide you with a point cloud of your project’s existing conditions that your team can develop into the appropriate level of development (LOD) for your client and project.

“BIM is the most widely used design tool in the A/E/C industry.” —Carlos Velazquez, President/CEO

Compatible with: Autodesk, Bentley, Nemetschek and several other design software companies.
