In recent months, ProTech Fire has adopted the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in multiple projects. BIM is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.
ProTech Fire has used 3D modeling to coordinate effectively with other trades in highly congested areas such as CUPs (Central Utility Plants). “Without this highly valuable tool, these projects would have taken three times the amount of time to complete due to the amount of field coordination that would be required,” said ProTech Vice President, Paul Johnson. “We look forward to the continued success with BIM and the other trade partners.”
ProTech Fire has also recently purchased a Glu 360 license to give installers the ability to view models on an iPad while in the field, ensuring planning and coordination can be maximized.
