Using BIM for site design

Hardey Group has fully incorporated using BIM (Building Information Modeling) for our site design.

Even on small projects we are able to use national elevation data (LIDAR, DEM, etc.) along with topo surveying to build an accurate model of the surface we will be using for design.

This allows us to quickly design and refine our grades, drainage, and utility locations.

The projects below were small, but each had a tricky element due to steep grades or flood concerns.
