Virtual Design, Construction, & Operations Services

Making Better-Informed Decisions Using BIM

Providing a virtual version of any project is a reality when working with LiRo. Our Virtual Design, Construction, & Operations team can simulate the processes, data, and geometry of a building or infrastructure project – essentially creating it “virtually” ahead of actual construction. With our knowledge of various cutting-edge software tools, we are able to analyze, visualize, and communicate building information so the entire project team is able to make better-informed decisions – from design through operations.

LiRo’s experts provide full-service modeling for projects of all categories and scales – and for both new and existing facilities. We have extensive expertise with the following industries and applications: architecture, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, structural, civil, infrastructure, site logistics, and landscaping.

How We Do It
We develop and integrate Building Information Modeling (BIM)-related technology and processes into our client’s existing workflow. We can build a 3D virtual model from 2D reference documents and laser scans, and link it up to schedules (4D) and information-based cost estimation (5D). These capabilities are revolutionizing how projects are planned and tracked. As the building design evolves, our team can seamlessly update the virtual model, and automatically distribute review comments to the project team. We have extensive experience in clash detection and systems coordination during both the design and construction phases, and can detect issues much earlier than with traditional methods. The use of a sophisticated visualization engine allows us to provide near photorealistic walkthroughs for a fraction of the effort compared to traditional visualization software.

How You Benefit
These tools and more enable our clients to review the building that is actually being built in an ongoing fashion. We have the capacity to take BIM data accrued from design through construction phases and integrate it into facility management and operations. This data includes the most detailed information about facility elements, systems, and spaces.

Through our unique process and technology, we are able to surface potential issues, run “what-if” scenarios for construction sequencing and resource allocation, perform certain tests on information models to measure code compliance, track construction progress, and provide detailed analysis, quality control, and validation for daily construction tasks. These services ultimately save time and money on our projects.

LiRo is considered a leader in the implementation of BIM in construction applications, and we are constantly investigating new developments to stay at the forefront of this rapidly evolving field. Contact LiRo today to take advantage of our revolutionary methods.
