Residential Architecture is one of the numerous sectors that we have long term expertise. We have participated in projects of many sizes and countries all around the world. Here are 5 residential architecture projects. On each of them, our BIM modeling approach boosted construction making it simpler for architects, engineers, and general contractors.
Carrying out residential projects all around the world is always a challenge that we are always willing to take. These projects require precise work to comply with the idea of project owners, general contractors and, most importantly, the final customer. In the end, they are the ones that will inhabit the place and make it their home.
Next, there are 5 residential cases where a BIM modeling service approach enhanced the construction process. BIM architecture residential drafting and design provides a smoother and simpler workflow. It is applicable for the construction of houses, home extensions, apartments, condos, and high-rise living.
1. 3D BIM modeling applied in Multi-family projects
Parkside City Center, Aurora, Colorado, US.
Parkside City Center is one of our 2018 projects. We partnered with OZ Architecture in the project delivery of this residential multi-family project. It consists of a single building with garage parking and associated site improvements. Additionally, it has a 5-story parking structure covering the parking needs for the mixed-use building.
This multi-family building consists of 216 units, ranging in size from studio to 3-bedroom.
The challenge our architects and engineers had to face was the documentation and modeling of the architectural shell and core.
As our delivery strategy, we put together a remote team in charge of Architecture as well as Interior Design. We also placed a BIM coordinator working at our client’s office. From there, we provided coordination and assistance for the BIM project.
Parkside City Center is one of our latest BIM residential architecture projects in Colorado, US working with OZ Architecture.
The result of implementing Revit as the BIM software of choice was improved reference for design. It also provided a trusted and more precise source of information for the building process.
2. BIM 3D Model Solutions for California’s Residential market
Pear Ave - South Building in Mountain View, California, US.
The Pear Ave project was one of our latest experiences in Mountain View, CA. We partnered up with Studio T-Square in the first half of 2018. It consisted of a 5 story residential South Building of the Pear Ave. And it includes 220 units with 20 different types of units.
Our team had the responsibility of delivering the Schematic Design Package for the residential portion of Pear Ave. Project. We created a Revit model for the Residential Building named "South".
The BIM strategy called for a BIM modeling approach centered on the Schematic Design stage. A LOD 200 BIM model was implemented.
The Pear Ave residential project in Mountain View, CA was a great challenge for us partnering with Studio T Square. This project serves a reference for how instruction for preparing architectural production. It is key to begin work in the right working process direction.
3. Architecture Residential Drafting for Mixed-Use Residential
Woodinville Creek Village in Woodinville, Washington, US.
The Woodinville Creek Village project is a mixed-use residential development that consisted of 7 buildings. The prototypical units to be developed were architecture shell & core layout only.
CorbisStudio assisted GGLO Design in the Design Development and Construction Drawings project stages. Our teams produced 2D drawings and Revit Models (using Revit 2016) to produce the geometry and documentation.
We also supported GGLO with the documentation for the architectural drawings, including annotating, dimensions, tagging, sheet view setups, and schedule generation.
At Design Development, we provided Revit generated technical drawings describing the design intent in more specific detail than Schematic Design. We coordinated with the consultant team, technical consultants and third-party designers to assure the design intent was maintained. Our team prepared a Detail LOD 300 in order to model the design elements.
In the Construction Drawings stage, we completed the Construction Documents based on the approved Detailed Design Development documents. This stage sets forth in detail the requirements for the construction principle and methods.
The Construction Documents included drawings and specifications establishing in detail the quality levels of materials and systems required for the project.
Woodinville Creek Village in Woodinville, WA was a good experience we added to our Residential Architecture expertise.
4. BIM modeling impact on Design and Construction
8th and Blanchard in Seattle, Washington, US
2202 8th Avenue in Seattle, WA is a project of a 40-floor residential tower consisting of 435 units. The project also counts with 1 level of retail mixed-use space and the balance of the tower as residential. It features 7 below-grade parking levels.
CorbisStudio supported Graphite Design Group in the Design Development and Construction Drawings stages with Architecture Shell & Core BIM Models. There were approximately 79 sheets for DDs and approximately 130 sheets for CDs for the construction project.
For the architectural shell & core, our BIM strategy included the production of BIM models. They were based on the Schematic Design CAD drawings to set up base models and progress from DD to CD stages.
Our team was in charge of the documentation for architectural drawings, including annotating, dimensions, tagging, sheet view setups, schedule, and generation.
During documentation, we provided a base team responsible for updating the model red marks on the drawings. This project in Seattle is currently under construction.
8th and Blanchard was another Residential Architecture experience in the state of Washington, this time in Seattle. We provided BIM support during this project delivery.
5. BIM addressed Design and Construction principles
Blvd Heights Residential in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Blvd Heights is a residential project that celebrates a stylish life, work and thriving residential choice in Downtown Dubai. Described as ‘The Centre of Now’, it consists of 2 towers with twin residential tower usage.
CorbisStudio’s scope of work covered all items necessary to complete the related works for a Virtual Model and Coordination. We supported the architecture and design firm Perkins+Will.
Our team covered the production of a model at the Schematic Design stage. Work went on to the end of the Detailed Design stage.
Our BIM Model complied with the industry standards and the information available. Thorugh, a detailed clash detection, the model was free of clashes for the tolerances set in the BEP. Our 3D model specified building systems and disciplines as coordinated with the Perkins+Will team. It featured a LOD 300 of level detail.
This is another project that we participated in that is currently under construction in Dubai. By implementing BIM methodology to the project, Blvd Heights will get all necessary for facility management.
