RGC&A- BIM Technology Exponent

Building Information Modeling or BIM Technology creates a parametric 3D model of a project design that produces traditional building abstractions such as plans, sections, elevations, axonometric, details and schedules. The drawings produced are not discrete collections of manually coordinated lines (as they are in Computer-Aided Drafting - CAD), but interactive representations or, more accurately, different views of a model.

Working in a model-based framework guarantees that a change in one view will propagate to all other views of the model. As elements are shifted in plan, they change in elevation and section. If a level height is moved, all the walls and floors associated with that level update automatically and adjust their height/length to the new condition. If a door is removed from the model, it is simultaneously removed from all other display. This unprecendented level of coordination allows us to better control and display information, ensuring higher design quality and creative potential.

R.G.CHAN & ASSOCIATES (RGC&A) remains at the forefront in terms of cutting-edge design software applications in our desire to deliver the best services to clients. RGC&A remains the only Architectural & Engineering (A&E) firm in Baguio which has successfully transitioned into the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) software for our design projects. It took us over ten years, starting as early as 2002, before attaining an authoritative comfort level with BIM and its deployment into our design system.
