What is Building Information Modeling?

Building Information Modeling (BIM) software is used to develop building design renderings based on criteria and construction drawings. Our designers use BIM program Revit to create conceptual images as well as walk-through video renderings to visualize our designs. Revit modeling depicts detailed specifications of every aspect of the building design. It provides clash detection and avoids conflicts with contradictory information between documents and building systems. BIM software allows us as designers to communicate the intent and scope of a project. These images can also be used for marketing and fundraising purposes as the conceptual videos allow the owner to present the visual appeal of a future building project. Check out some of our team’s recent BIM rendering videos.

Triumph of Flight Wright Brothers Monument Brown & Bills Architects partnered with the Wright Image Group to develop a Revit based rendering video of the future Triumph of Flight Monument. Located the the I75/I70 intersection, the monument will commemorate the achievements of the Wright Brothers and the important role that the Dayton and Southwest Ohio Regions continue to play in the aviation and aerospace industries.

Ohio Department of Transportation Rest Stop Prototype The project entails the design of a prototype highway rest area facility for the Ohio Department of Transportation. As travelers approach the building they are presented with a facility that is warm and welcoming, made of natural materials, and filled with natural daylight. The prototype facility will provide restrooms, tourist information, and support facilities. The design includes material selections that are easily maintainable and sustainable.

College Health Sciences Department Building Concept Associate Designer Shathra Alazzawi recently completed a course in Revit at Sinclair Community College (SCC) in Dayton, Ohio. She created this conceptual video rendering of a new healthcare department building for Sinclair’s campus using Revit. Take a look.
