LANDSCAPE BIM SERVICES

Landscape BIM for Architects

We understand the importance of BIM for landscape architecture and it is one of the key services we provide to landscape architects. We are providing range of bim services in India, UK, USA and Australia. Building information modeling can bring numerous benefits to landscape architects. Landscape architects work with general contractors, architects, real estate developers and project managers. It is important for them to work collaboratively with all project stakeholder using right landscape architectural tools. Delivering the landscape architecture in BIM could also be a mandate for some of the projects due to contractual requirements. The landscape BIM certainly helps all the stakeholders in the ecosystem to collaborate, communicate and deliver the project efficiently. 

In the building and infrastructure industry, the building information modeling is widely used however, for the landscape architects building the BIM landscape model isn't popular. The landscape BIM modeling can bring numerous advantages to the overall workflow and processes. It helps achieve faster drawing production, faster and accurate quantities and seamless collaboration with architects using BIM models. We help our clients prepare the overall project BIM model along with detailed landscape model that includes all necessary landscape planting scheme such as large planting areas, hedges, planting centers, and mixes. We use multiple technologies to generate a complete landscape BIM model. Generally, for contours, we use civil 3d as the technology is able to accept the land survey data in multiple formats and ways. All we need to ensure is we have three-dimensional data i.e having valid X, Y, Z values or N ( northing), E (easting), Z( elevation or reduced level). Once the data is available, we create an accurate and detailed terrain model. Often it is called DTM ( digital terrain model) or triangulated surface.

Further, there could be a requirement of developing building blocks or making flat building pad. Our in-house team of civil engineers is experts in developing the terrain model as per the plan. We can also optimize the reduced level for the individual building pad or the group of building pads. Our cut and fill optimization includes internal roads, drainage, etc. Upon completion of the landscape site, we generally collaborate the same with Revit to ensure all the data are on a single platform and collaborated. While having the detailed terrain model in Revit, it is required to develop the BIM landscape elements. We have worked on landscape BIM projects such as the residential, commercial, industrial, central park, garden, etc. BIM landscape development helps extract automated and updated drawings and quantities.

Benefits of Landscape BIM Services

  • Enhanced data management, collaboration with stakeholders and streamlined design that leads to in-depth project visibility and better-informed decision making.

  • Improve the overall project lifecycle and costing helps achieve accurate and reliable data that eventually help facility managers, project owners, and architects.

  • Since the overall activities are well planned it helps optimize the material and streamline site logistic leading to efficient and timely completion of the project.
