Intelligent BIM Models
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the way of bringing your facilities into the 21st century. Having a 3D model is an important first step, but having an intelligent model is like having a 3D model on steroids. Using virtual design and construction (VDC) methodology, PMI can get the most out of your BIM model.
Using the latest BIM standards, PMI can get the most out of your facility during its “building life cycle.” PMI has a worldwide team of engineers to handle any sized 3D modeling or BIM projects to increase ROI of your facility by creating an intelligent model for all project and asset data.
3D modeling allows you to create a digital twin of your facility. A digital twin is a 3D, digital representation of the current as-built of your asset. This allows you to bridge the gap between intelligent model and the physical structure. Having up-to-date asset data provides managers and teams immediate access to all building information remotely. PMI can get more out of your BIM model with our facility management services.
The Traceable 3D system starts with a unique washer to achieve quality assured benchmarks. Washers are installed in multiple locations around your site and surveyed using advanced survey techniques to achieve high accuracy coordinates of each washer. A prism or other accessories then attaches onto the washer with the built-in magnet. Our technology suits all types of surveying, scanning and metrology instruments. The PMI method saves you time and improves productivity.
Benefits of BIM
- Virtual walkthroughs
- Asset Information Modeling (AIM)
- All project and asset data in one place
- AR/VR capabilities
- Facility Management and building handover
- Accurate data management
- Pre-construction project visualization
- Clash detection
- Reduced Cost
- Increase productivity
- An intelligent model functions as a living document, extending 3D models beyond geometry, and creating data-driven work spaces to optimize efficiency and productivity.
- Provide a foundation for deployments of Flexible Manufacturing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things (IoT).
- Empower decision makers to visualize and operate on business-critical information within its spatial context.

BIM to FM
Today’s building owners are realizing benefits of using intelligent BIM systems for sharing useful information among properties. The main driver is confidence in establishing and keeping financial budgets for facility design, construction, operations, and maintenance under control.
PMI has a vast experience in 2D to 3D Conversion in the process of transforming 2D product, factory, or building designs from a 2-dimensional drawing to a 3-dimensional model.
Reality Capture is the practice of digitizing the real world into a computer format. This can take the form of laser scanning, manual measurements, survey, or photogrammetry.
