This three-story multi-family public housing apartment building consists of 37 units—6 two-bedroom and 31 one-bedroom layouts. A 3D building information model (BIM) is being utilized by all disciplines—architectural and engineering, during the construction document phase. BIM allows exact spatial coordination between mechanical and electrical systems and the building's structure. The model will also serve as a tool for the end user in estimating, scheduling, managing and commissioning. BIM data can later be easily accessed for renovations and remodels. Construction is scheduled for completion in Fall, 2011.
