BIM Pipeline Features

Module based design allows builders to choose the features that meet their current goals and allows them to build upon one another for added benefits.

Builder Module

With Pipeline’s Builder Module at the root of it all, you can manage all the relevant assets of a home builder and control exactly what’s getting built.

Cloud Estimation

With Cloud Estimation you can bring it all together by taking the BIM direct data to a full bill of materials.

Costing Module

With the Costing Module you can prevent redundant tasks by using a complete BOM to align with various vendor’s costs and establish a true cost to construct.

BIM Pipeline Benefits

Builders now have a solution which efficiently and accurately bridges the historical gap between design and estimation, thus reducing cycle times.

Economical

  • Link design to estimating for accurate automated takeoffs
  • Scale operations without adding staff
  • Increase net margins
  • Leverage the known costs of a production builder, while allowing for customer specific changes to be made…and stay profitable

Knowledgeable

  • Powerful rules based estimating
  • Job estimates provided “as built”
  • On-the-fly Delta +/- estimates for model/options
  • Known custom changes added to budget

Comprehensive

  • Progressively or promptly move into BIM technology at your own pace with a flexible 3 phased implementation approach.
  • Better manage options, communities, houses, and jobs.

X-RAY & Quickstart Overview

Revit Residential Startup Kit

X-RayThe X-RAY Material Extraction Addin works inside Revit to allow Key Measurements to be extracted from the Revit model ready for input into BIM Pipeline.

The Pipeline X-RAY Add-In is a rules based key measure take-off tool designed to create consistent quantity information from project to project. While segmenting quantities within Design Options, X-RAY can publish all project materials directly to Pipeline for integrations with various back office systems or to Excel with the push of a button. Rule statements are extremely flexible and can simplify results that would otherwise be complex using Revit scheduling capability.

 

QuickstartThe CG Visions’ Residential Startup Kit was created specifically for home builders to achieve the efficiency and productivity anticipated from their investment in BIM.

The CG Visions’ Residential Startup Kit was created specifically for home builders of North America who are either new to Revit or have used Revit for some time yet still struggle to achieve the efficiency and productivity anticipated from their investment in BIM. The content supplied within the Startup Kit should allow a home builder (big or small, production or custom) to hit the ground running with minimal upfront customization time to create a proper construction document set while further leveraging the information to enhance an estimation workflow. This is not a one size fits all package, but is meant to be a stepping stone for developing sound habits and workflows while refining the tools to best reflect your company’s specific brand and business requirements.
