Hoffman uses the latest technology to achieve better buildings. We pioneered computer-aided 3D design collaboration on projects like the Experience Music Project and Seattle Central Library. Today we leverage a suite of Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools to enhance collaboration among designers, owners, subcontractors, and suppliers. Our investment in cutting-edge technologies means fewer RFIs and change orders, and faster completion dates.
3D laser scanning ensures we understand the as-built conditions of a project site before we begin. We built our projects virtually first, ensuring maximum efficiency when we mobilize on the site. BIM models are shared among suppliers, facilitating off-site fabrication and assembly, which reduces site congestion.
Digital Plan Tables take BIM to the field, where large flat screens provide the platform for collaborative resolution of clashes between systems. We utilize tablets in the field to document quality and commissioning efforts in real-time, so stakeholders can help guide the results. Upon project turnover, we provide owners with a precise model of as-built conditions for use by facilities and operations staff.
