Building Information Modeling
Schuff Steel employs the use of BIM tools on each project, embedding every object in the 3D model with vital data that allows us to manage our jobs with maximum efficiency, both upstream and downstream. The traditional 2-step process of design and build as separate functions is outdated. At Schuff Steel we’re strong advocates of the “build 4 times” model of build three times with BIM and once on the ground. It allows for real time clash detection making the construction phase more efficient by eliminating as many uncertainties as possible before starting erection.
BIM technology allows insights to the constructability of the project with animations and fly-throughs that, up until the millennium, were not available.,
The benefits of BIM are real and measurable*
Schuff Steel prides itself in the early adoption of technologies dating back to 2003, when we implemented BIM. Today Schuff Steel continues to be pioneers in shaping the BIM process. Leveraging our experience and selectively curating the very best team in the industry, Schuff Steel’s clients benefit from our far-reaching capabilities.

With complexities in design and strict deadlines, BIM technology was utilized to detect and resolve issues early. This prevented lengthy delays in scheduling and optimized project delivery.
