Our 3D Construction group is set up to service industrial, commercial and institutional accounts. Our expertise ranges from 2d and 3d design and drafting, to onsite 3D laser scanning and cloud processing, to BIM Mechanical and Electrical project design.

The 3D Construction group consists of designers, modellers, and draftspeople with experience from single component design and all the way up to multi-million dollar BIM construction projects.  To succeed in this industry, Trade-Mark utilizes the full autodesk product suite as well as products from Solidedge, Trimble, and CadWorx.  This allows us to go from the screen to fabrication in as little steps as possible. 

Trade-Mark also owns a 3D laser scanner that greatly assists difficult and/or large measuring tasks, as-built drawing generation, and existing conditions modeling for future modifications or renovations.  This is a service that we not only use for ourselves, but contract out the scanning services to other contractors, engineers, and plant owners.

BIM Process

A method to integrate, share and communicate details of building’s design, layout and construction to produce a fully constructible virtual model.

Collaboration and data management for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry makes it easier to track, protect, and share dozens of models and thousands of drawings with team members inside and outside of your organization.

Owner Benefits of BIM

A process change that improves the odds of delivering a building on time and on budget.

  1. Improved design quality, better performing building (systems coordination, engineering analysis)
  2. Fewer change orders (building systems clash detection)
  3. Schedule optimization (construction schedule simulation)
  4. Schedule compression (digital assisted fabrication, offsite fab)
  5. Efficient handover (data exchange for operations/maintenance)
  6. Risk reduction (more transparency)

Contractor Benefits of BIM

A data rich digital representation of a building that provides a better understanding of the building and assists with construction delivery.

  1. Risk reduction (better understanding of complexity)
  2. Building systems coordination (clash detection, layout)
  3. Shop drawing reduction (model to fabrication)
  4. Digital fabrication (steel, HVAC ducts, piping)
  5. Construction schedule optimization (visual schedule simulation)
  6. Cost estimating (quantity takeoffs)

Architect/Engineer Benefits of BIM

A data rich digital representation of a building that allows designers to explore design options, conduct analysis and better communicate design intent.

  1. Design prototype (space arrangements, assemblies, materials)
  2. Building systems coordination (space reservation, clash detection)
  3. Analysis (space, lighting, energy, structural)
  4. Drawing production quality (flexible, exploits automation, better coordinated)
  5. Design exploration/interrogation (data rich visual models)
  6. Engineering accuracy (measurement, context)

Team Benefits of BIM

A project delivery process that encourages collaboration and a focus on data management and sharing.

  1. Efficient processes (forces process re-engineering)
  2. Improved collaboration (concurrent design, process to rally around)
  3. Better decisions (better coordinated information)
  4. Accelerated understanding (graphics + data)
  5. Efficiencies from reuse of data (enter once use many)
  6. Improved data quality (less data re-entry, less human error)

The Trade-Mark Difference

Having the ability to fabricate and install the systems and components we design, we are mindful of all potential risks, efficiencies, and manufacturing considerations that may arise.  Having this rounded view of a project allows Trade-Mark to minimize mistakes, discrepancies, and ensure the most efficient manufacture and installation of the project.
