RIZCON’s culture is one of collaboration and cooperation. This culture provides us with the ability to listen to our clients, subcontractors, and vendors in an effort to discover the best means possible to provide the team with outstanding construction experience. This ability to listen enables us to maintain successful working relationships with clients, subcontractors, and vendors while implementing cutting-edge technology on our projects.One such innovation is the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM). Our team has extensive project experience and clearly understands the value that BIM can add to the outcome of a project. Our team’s expertise will benefit the project’s planning and construction management process - from the pre-bid phase through the commissioning phase.
Automated Quantity take-offs in which whatever limited information is available is fed into the model, assumptions are then made to generate the model and then quantities (and therefore pricing) can be extracted from the model.
Visualization for the owner to picture their future project, giving them the ability to make decisions early
Laser Scan Surveying (renovations, poor or no as-builts). Design Estimating – efficient quantity take-offs that can then be applied to cost histories, allowing the value engineering process to begin early if necessary. Clash Detection of different systems, allowing the team to fix field issues before they reach the field.
Field Layout – planning, site logistics, visualize building footprint relative to the overall site landscape. Field Visualization – think pre-fab, an image of a virtual rack and then the rack as built in the field. Trade Coordination – in field clash detection, conflict resolution. Scheduling – sequencing, trade coordination, visualization of the progress of the job. Shop Drawing – no potential for information lost in translation because models of designers and contractors “talk to each other.” (design to construction translation). O + M Manuals – again no opportunity for information lost in translation because the model of contractor and facility’s maintenance “talk to each other.” (construction to maintenance translation)
