At Shelco, we make it our mission to build better projects with innovative construction applications and lean construction technologies to enable our team to better communicate, collaborate and visualize. Our in-house Virtual Construction capacity pushes the limits of virtual construction technology.
Virtual models allow the entire team to weigh options, analyze potential impacts, and eliminate conflicts before a shovel hits the site. By taking a virtual modeling expertise and collaborative team approach, we’re able to save clients time and money while allowing for a quicker, seamless delivery.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that brings construction projects to life before construction begins. Using BIM technology, our team will develop a 3D rendering allowing you to virtually “walk through” the building during design and provide very early input to maximize the flexibility of your space. Additionally, using BIM during pre-construction allows our project team to perform clash detection prior to construction which addresses constructability issues in the field and reduces change orders. BIM strengthens the building process by integrating enhanced information technology with collaborative planning, resulting in a streamlined process that saves both time and money.
