How It Works: BIM in Rigging & Demolition

How It Works: BIM in Rigging & Demolition

Building Information Modeling, or BIM, is the process of creating and utilizing a single, coherent 3D digital model representing a building’s physical and functional characteristics from design and construction, through the entirety of its life cycle, and ending in demolition. BIM is becoming more and more widely embraced in the construction industry, and R. Baker & Son has had the opportunity to utilize BIM technology on rigging, dismantling and demolition projects on an increasingly regular basis.

Rigging equipment into existing and new buildings and moving it within limited confines can present numerous challenges. On new construction projects, BIM models can be used early on to coordinate scheduling and plot delivery paths to the smallest detail. Rigging teams can use BIM in existing facilities to visualize and create complex rigging routes through small openings and around tight corners. During one recent project, R. Baker & Son was able to utilize BIM modeling to successfully rig two large chillers through a small skylight with a mere four inches of clearance.

BIM technology is also used on demolition and dismantling projects to determine a building features, spot problems, and plan logistical details. As its popularity rises, invaluable BIM information will be available to aid contractors like R. Baker & Son with project planning and execution with ever-growing frequency.
