Collaborative Technologies

We believe whole heartedly in the power of innovation to drive communication and collaboration. As Virtual Design & Construction trends transform our industry, BOND leads the market in integrating the latest technologies into our projects. From the corporate-wide utilization of Building Information Modeling (BIM) to cutting-edge existing building laser scanning, BOND leverages technology to provide value to our clients.

Building Information Modeling—A Corporate Standard

BOND’s use of BIM promotes the development of a common set of project goals, minimizing risk before construction begins in the field. Our shared 3D models facilitate a new level of transparency between BOND, our design & engineering partners, and our clients. Utilizing this powerful visualization tool, we virtually enact the building process to resolve design conflicts early, enhancing schedule efficiency and lowering cost. Perhaps most importantly, BIM serves as an excellent communication tool, spurring interaction between all members of our project teams and making the construction process easy. With 3D models, our clients can virtually “walk through” their project, proposing changes and understanding how design impacts outcome long before groundbreaking.

BIM modelIn-house Laser Scanning

Our in-house laser scanning capabilities have proven tremendously valuable to our clients, setting our teams up for success by providing the most accurate as-built documentation for fit-out and renovation work. We convert scan data into 3D Revit models, compatible with design and engineering models, to provide clash detection and logistics and safety planning services for our clients. During construction, laser scanning serves as a corporate quality control tool with a focus on proper installation and future facilities asset management.

Going Beyond BIM

We offer an in-house Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) department to help our clients build more efficiently in today’s world. Integrating BIM into company-wide technology platform, we streamline our estimates through On Screen Take-Off (OST), simulate our schedules through Primavera P6 Scheduling, provide critical pick planning to sequence work, and deliver 3D field layouts with the latest GPS technology.
