Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Forest Electric has been a leader in BIM-coordinated projects since 2007, and we’re one of the few New Jersey contractors with a full staff of highly experienced personnel trained in building information modeling.
Making impossible schedules possible
By leveraging our BIM experience, we’ve been able to complete seemingly impossible construction schedules. Being able to visualize the building early in the process allows us to identify any possible pre-fab opportunities. This also helps us identify potential design and constructability issues during the planning phase, greatly reducing field conflicts and resulting in a higher quality installation.
Leadership and conflict resolution
Forest typically takes the lead on each project by integrating all of the other trade’s drawings to form a complete building model. We then identify clashes and distribute information to the other trades to resolve any conflicts. We coordinate online or in our new state-of-the-art conference room designed specifically for BIM activities.
The latest in software and technology
Forest Electric maintains software licenses for the latest versions of AutoCad MEP, Navisworks, and Revit software. We provide our staff with the most up-to-date, high-performance computers on the market. And we put our technology investment to use on all mid to large projects in various industries, including: data centers, health care, pharmaceutical, and petro chemical.
