Broadmoor strategically identifies project risk and determines where technology can assist.
Broadmoor knows the right technology can make or break a project. We find the tools our people need to do their best work. Building scanning and x-ray often provide information that makes our estimates as accurate and reliable as possible. We use 4-D scheduling (integration of model to the schedule) when it would be beneficial. Technology plays a key role in determining the feasibility of prefabrication in the project, which benefits the project schedule.
When technology gives the project an advantage in managing time, cost, or risk, we explore it.
The Right Tech for the Right Projects
Ground Penetrating Radar
GPR on foundation and floors can ensure rebar, conduits, and piping will be coordinated with new construction. The new skin will require extensive connections to the existing structure, and we will know the exact location of the rebar prior to installation, thus avoiding the added cost and time associated with re-detailing and re-fabricating connections.
3D Laser Scanning
3D Laser Scans will identify as-built dimensional discrepancies and provide the accuracy needed to quickly develop shop drawings. The 3D scan will be incorporated into the architect’s model and will allow for key skin element shop drawings to be created and checked in 3D.
Building Information Modeling
BIM will allow for consideration of potentially utilizing prefabrication of Walls and MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) and tracking of MEP Systems.
The 3D Scan, Model, and BIM can all be used together to bring prefabrication to life. Extensive MEP systems can benefit from not only the schedule savings but also the quality enhancement of prefabrication and Modular Racking.
