BIM | Building Information Modeling
LERA embraces new technology to enhance design solutions and create efficient innovations to structural systems. BIM enables LERA to investigate different design options and alternative materials, while identifying and addressing constructability issues. BIM also helps LERA to reduce the number of man hours required to coordinate and complete project documents. Our continued success with BIM can be attributed to the vision and collaborative efforts between our structural engineers and our BIM department. The staff of our BIM department have architectural and structural backgrounds and are proficient in Revit and BIM software. We use Rhino, Tekla and 3D AutoCad in collaboration with Revit.
LERA has been actively involved in the Building Information Modeling (BIM) effort since 2005. We have successfully handled projects from schematic design through construction documents phases. To date, we have worked with some of the industry’s leading architectural and MEP consultants on various BIM projects. These projects consist of, but are not limited to, educational, residential, institutional, healthcare and research facilities.
