Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology is rapidly expanding throughout the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry as the foundation for a more effective project delivery. Hatch Mott MacDonald adopted this process in 2008, and strategically uses the latest BIM technology to deliver projects more effectively. Thoughtful application of BIM enhances the way that consultants, contractors, and clients collaborate. The ability to develop, manage, update, calculate, and distribute design information about a project is not only changing the workflows during the design and construction phases, but it is revolutionizing the approach to the design, communication, and life-cycle management of our projects.
Careful and appropriate integration of BIM efforts during the planning, development, and detailed design phases of a project support improved collaboration and visualization among Owners, Stakeholders and Contractors. This in turn leads to increased value during the execution stage of a project, including more efficient planning, procurement, and execution, resulting in cost optimization and risk reduction.
BIM capabilities within HMM include Site/Civil, Architectural, Structural, Process Mechanical, Utilities, and MEP. Projects utilizing BIM technology range from heavy civil and industrial infrastructure to commercial structures and linear work. HMM is committed to using BIM to deliver projects in larger infrastructure facilities such as water & wastewater treatment plants, underground structures, pump stations, dams, bridges, and tunnels.
HMM has developed a robust database of proprietary content with regard to the various sectors, practices, and clients that enables our design teams to deliver more than just a 3D model. Using BIM technology HMM can assist in providing multiple benefits over the lifecycle of a project including:
