When designing anything, it is very important that the designer, client, and contractors are all on the same page. VIMtrek represents a solution that can help enable a smoother workflow and coordination between all parties involved for a better understanding of the project. The data driven BIM model still contains all of the information and is accessible while viewing the model by simply pointing and clicking on a component. With VIMtrek, the team is able to freely maneuver around within this environment and access any information about an object within the BIM model. This makes it easier for the team to coordinate products being used within the project. “VIMtrek eliminates the need to rely solely on 2D architectural drawings,” said Donald Baret, Producer of Office Spaces. “For our show, the 3D model was a great way to introduce the audience to the new space and highlight the contractors and suppliers we are working with.”
Kalyn Rothaus, host of Office Spaces and interior designer for this project, views the virtual model of the BrandStar Offices in Pompano Beach, FL on the show with the use of VIMtrek software. “The VIMtrek model was easy to navigate after a brief tutorial!” stated Kalyn. For their purposes, they are “also using the model in conjunction with a SmartKapp IQ board which is touch screen compatible. Navigating the model via touch screen is a lot of fun and goes over well in presentations!”
VIMtrek’s software facilitates visualization during designing and pitching, bidding, building and delivery, as well facility management and operation.
