Building with Technology
Building Information Modeling is changing the way the construction industry designs, builds, and manages projects. It is more than just the 3D representation of a building. It allows all parties to work within a single model to streamline information sharing, coordinate building components, and resolve critical construction issues before they reach the field.
At Central we are committed to integrating BIM and the technology that continues to evolve with it into our daily processes. Having the ability to model our entire scope of work in 3D, coordinate with other trades, produce more detailed documentation, and implement technology into the field allows the entire construction team to work more effectively and efficiently.

Coordination & Clash Detection:
Accurately modeling critical framing members for both walls and ceilings has multiple benefits that stretch across the entire construction team. We are able to overlay our models with other MEP trades to identify and resolve conflicts / design issues ahead of time. This coordination process has proven to save both time and money in future issues and changes.
We also utilize BIM to develop shop drawings and coordinated documentation to supplement the construction documents on almost all of our projects. These documents help to clarify our scope of work, coordinate details, and provide clarity to under developed areas of a building. A few examples of these documents include wall type drawings, blocking drawings, drywall finish drawings, early wall/MEP coordination drawings, and exterior LGMF drawings.
The process of coordinating issues early also helps gain a clearer understanding of logistical issues of the construction process. Visualizing a building before a project even begins opens the door for discussions of which trade will go first and how that work will be executed. A fully coordinated model can allow us to frame walls and ceilings with all openings accounted for before any MEP work is even done in that space. This type of logistical approach is a something that could not occur without the use of BIM and technology.
Technology in the Field:
Central is also committed to implementing technology into the field. Whether it giving our field staff access to the BIM Model, using our laser layout system to more quickly layout on site, milling drywall shapes utilizing our internal PanelMax machine, or rolling our own metal framing in our Prefab shop Central's commitment to technology finds its way into the field.
