IT ALL COMES BACK TO A GOOD FOUNDATION.
For Brockway Mechanical & Roofing, precision and expertise starts with our in-house design department, who are skilled in producing fabrication and coordination drawings.
Brockway Mechanical & Roofing is embracing new technology and reinventing our processes in the spirit of continuous improvement. This enables us to be an innovator and a nationally-recognized top contractor. Using field technology like total stations, 3D laser scanners, tablets and mobile apps, in concert with the latest in BIM tools allows us to perform work more safely, efficiently and with greater accuracy than ever before. This not only enhances our own ability to perform, but also simplifies the process of coordinating with other contractors and tradesmen on complex projects.
(Building Information Modeling)
A construction project can get extremely complicated when each team (mechanical, carpentry, roofing, electrical, etc.) has a different set of construction drawings.
These drawings never reveal the complete picture on their own, and often limit one construction specialty to the detriment of another. BIM, or Building Information Modeling, allows us to coordinate all of the necessary information from all of these drawings with everything laid out together on a 3D model.
This allows us the ability to detect conflicts prior to installation eliminates project delays, making for a more efficient workflow in the field. Incorporating Building Information Modeling allows us to offer our services at a lower cost and provides a faster project completion.
Our Trimble Total Station technology allows us to capture accurate measurements of any existing conditions with 3D laser scanning. Trimble Total Stations also incorporate CAD and BIM models to laser point mechanical routing, hangers, and sleeves on the job site that allow us to start the construction process in a fast and accurate manner. One person can accurately layout hundreds of points in a single day, even with the most complex designs.
3D laser scanning is the process in which a device records geometric data from its surroundings, capturing nearly one million points per second. As the laser reflects off visible items, the device calculates both locations and distances between points, producing a data set known as a point cloud.
Using our BIM expertise and in-house resources, we’re able to generate complete and accurate as-built models and documents, measuring point-to-point and accessing areas typically not reachable with a typical tape measure.
