Building Information Modeling (BIM):

Barton North Design RenderingBIM modeling provides insight into a project during design and development. This allows our designers and the construction team to see in a 3D environment what they may miss in a 2D drawing. BIM helps in the coordination of the various building systems including electrical, mechanical and plumbing, and aids in the visualization of a building. Garco can provide clients with the following BIM services:

  • 3D Modeling
  • Clash Detection Services
  • Schedule Integration

Design-Build Process

Conceptual Development: The design team works closely with the client to establish design ideas.  Once a basic design is established the client proceeds to work with our estimators and project managers to establish budgetary requirements and construction timelines. 

Contract Documents & Drawings: Contract documents and drawings are produced by the design team for the building permit application and project pricing.

Project Pricing: A project manager will work with the design team, client and subcontractors to establish project pricing.

Construction: Garco’s design team and project management staff work with the project superintendent during the construction process to ensure a quality project for the client.

Our Design-Build team will be involved from the beginning to the end ensuring good communication, accountability and an excellent understanding of what is expected from years of working together. Direct communication and feedback are encouraged between the client, project manager, project superintendent, subcontractors and the designer.
