OUR SERVICES

Our core expertise is the implementation and management of project coordination processes guided by BIM oriented work environments.

Using 3D BIM modeling and our technical expertise in coordination, site logistics, detailed engineering and optimizations, we aim to create and support highly efficient projects for our clients throughout the design-bid-build processes.

BIM MANAGEMENT

SXD specializes in BIM Management. Multidisciplinary coordination and interface management involving various stakeholders are our core expertise, which we implement and carry out on all types of projects. SXD’s commitment is to design and building better projects through the implementation of BIM. Through the use of a shared and unique BIM model, we provide our clients with monitored databases and data exchange platforms to be used throughout the whole project’s life cycle. Our highly trained staff is dedicated to providing our clients with secured data structures as well as time saving, cost effective workflows and project delivery processes. BIM provides the most effective and accurate execution of your project.

TRANSITION TO BIM

Our experienced professionals guide your team through the transition to using BIM in your design and production process. Whether you’re working in 3D currently or unsure of where to start SXD will help establish best practices of integrating BIM into your workflow, adapting and preparing for the businesses future growth. It will begin with determining the BIM goal, building an execution plan, and training the team to find a process that supports your work.

BIM TRAINING

Architects and Construction Managers must constantly adapt to market requirements, The objective is twofold: to acquire the tools and reflexes to succeed in the transition to BIM and stand out in a competitive environment in response to client needs. In our training rooms in Portland, or on your office, benefit from courses tailored to your needs from beginner to expert. Let our professional trainers guide your team through the best practices of integrating BIM into your workflow.

BIM COORDINATION

SXD, with 4D architectural coordination, can anticipate clash detection and avoid delays during construction. This architectural synthesis allows the company to optimize its schedule and selection and coordination of subcontractors. This analysis provides the project manager with the tools to integrate planning and scheduling with budget. SXD collects information from MEP, highlights and proposes solutions to resolve technical collisions and inconsistencies. We are committed to providing the company with the necessary access to the technical networks and technical viability. With expert preparation and clear coordination between design and technical systems, SXD can help realize the best project outcome.

BIM OWNER REPRESENTATIVE

SXD works with real estate departments and clients to help them manage their assets using BIM. We offer BIM Consulting services for our clients’ existing, their renovation and/or new building projects. Our intervention scope covers programming, client BIM specifications documents preparation, tendering processes, reporting and tracking.

BIM FACILITY MANAGEMENT

SXD’s expertise in processing rich 3D point clouds from laser scan surveys enables our team to create precise 3D BIM model for projects that require accurate data. This process offers many advanced functions such as: 2D extractions for production drawings, distance calculations, as built versus model verifications.

CITY INFORMATION MODELING

SXD realized the first urban digital model. This corresponds to the same processes and information content as BIM, but at the urban/ district scale. The digital model scaled to an urban neighborhood in order to allow optimized and useful management throughout the life of the territory. The interconnection between the BIM and the CIM is essential for productive management at a neighborhood or community scale.

3D POINT CLOUD PROCESSING

SXD’s expertise in processing rich 3D point clouds from laser scan surveys enables our team to create precise 3D BIM model for projects that require accurate data. This process offers many advanced functions such as: 2D extractions for production drawings, distance calculations, as built versus model verifications.

BIM CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION

SXD uses its BIM models to extract detailed engineering documents. Our models are used to create production drawings for on-site use and also detailed shop drawings and models for direct fabrication uses.

4D VISUALIZATIONS

SXD’s team also deals with the integration of all the components linked to building site organization and construction schedules: Phasing the construction project, heavy equipment integration, 4D planning. Through various animations and tutorials issued from our BIM models, we help our clients better understand and manage their projects.

RENDERING AND VISUALIZATION

We can bring a design proposal to life with single frame renderings, film, or augmented reality and virtual reality. Utilizing a digital model SXD can set up a virtual reality or augmented reality presentation, allowing your team or client to experience the design in an undeniably impressive immersive interactive walk through. Whether you are looking to communicate design to clients, the team, or wanting promotional material let us help bring your design to life.
