BIM Services for Home Builders
Building Information Modeling is much more than a fancy-looking electronic blueprint and offers valuable help to make strategic decisions. Home Builders often use BIM as a part of Lean Building process – a project management approach to eliminate waste like over buying of materials and reducing errors that lead to frequent order change and higher construction cost. At Pinnacle, our expert team of engineers is dedicated to extend BIM services for home builders. We offer comprehensive BIM solutions including design, 3D BIM modeling, construction drawings, floor plans, quantity take-off and extend CGI excellence to marketing presentations. Pinnacle excels in handling BIM projects efficiently for large residential complexes, private properties and housing schemes and helps home builders in construction planning. We use Revit architecture, AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture and advanced BIM tools for better coordination and delivering higher accuracy to clients. Consequently, our clients can get easy retrieval of information, hi-tech documentation and improved productivity. Our BIM capabilities include BIM for architecture, structural design and MEP with construction scheduling, facility management, asset management, sustainability optimization, energy efficiency and thermal performance analysis for residential buildings.

- Quantity Take-off
Pinnacle has the capability and experience to shift the entire design operation of an organization from 2D to a 3D platform. The 3D platform provides a realistic look and feel of the project at the initial stage, which assists the designers to interact with homebuilders. Through Design Options program, we create multiple designs to compare the original design model. Unlike the traditional way of repeating and duplicating drawings, our team uses advanced BIM tools to create and manage variations. Every independent design option is presented in a set of documents with Takeoffs.
Pinnacle uses BIM Revit architecture and Revit MEP for creating 3D BIM models. This allows higher accuracy over BIM project management through floor plan design and construction scheduling. We use the best tools for making clash detection and analysis and thus resolve clashes effectively. We ensure that the models are appealing and realistic for getting displayed on websites, brochures and marketing presentations. BIM construction plans are integrated into the sustainability plans of the 3D Model for residential buildings, allowing maximum energy efficiency.
Pinnacle’s engineers understand the requirements of home builders and prepare construction document set accordingly. Our experts stay updated with the local construction codes and revisions issued for a specific state or a country where the project is based. We provide complete construction drawings in Revit with key features like foundation plan, elevation plan, sectional drawings, roofing, structural framing and detailed floor plans. Our team can also manage construction drawing libraries for revised construction plans. The detailed analysis of the construction site and floor plan helps our clients to get an insight of the total number of buildings and estimation for time, cost and profitability of the project.
Architecture – Pinnacle specializes in creating design and construction document from basic sketches and schematic designs and prepares the final construction documents in Revit and AutoCAD.
Electrical – Pinnacle provides electrical engineering and drafting services and offers 2D electrical drafting services for residential, commercial, educational and industrial buildings as well as hospitals. We produce all necessary documents for work commencement along with electrical take-off.
HVAC – Pinnacle provides top-notch HVAC engineering and drafting services in accordance with the current international standards. We do load calculations and simulate weather conditions as per project locations and produce all documents required for construction and material procurement.
PLUMBING – Pinnacle provides Plumbing Drafting services as per the current international Standards and produces all necessary documents required for construction and material procurement.
BIM models allow automatic take-off of different elements (counts, measurements, conditions that affect cost) during the design stage. This lets the home developers to estimate and compare the costs of using different design and material options and helps in better decision-making and risk management. Revit Modeling plays a pivotal role in producing accurate quantity take off. We help the home builders in tender management by preparing accurate building project estimate with detailed cost analysis and tracking construction process on schedule and budget.
