BIM Pipeline is a web based, rules driven, material management system that utilizes BIM data to directly drive detailed take-offs.
Builders now have a solution which efficiently and accurately bridges the historical gap between design and estimation while allowing each group to focus on their core competencies. Pipeline enables builders to leverage BIM data to create full master plan estimates with delta BOM reports for options, lot specific as built reports to directly cut purchase orders and even capture customer specific changes to track client customizations, all independent of the source of the BIM data.
Pipeline can consume & refine BIM data from multiple BIM applications such as AutoCAD Architecture, Revit, Vertex BD, and VisionRez, leaving the builder with the greatest opportunity to progress at their own pace without uprooting all their systems at once.
Builders now have a solution which efficiently and accurately bridges the gap between design and estimation, thus reducing cycle times.
BIM Pipeline enables builders to leverage a BIM process to:
- Create a full master plan estimate complete with delta BOM reports for Options
- Cut purchase orders directly from lot specific as-built reports
- Capture customer specific change to track the impact of client customizations on cost
All of these being accomplished by keeping a manageable link between design and estimation, while each group focuses on their core competencies.
