  • Project originally planned for normal MEP coordination Process. Bruner recognized the benefits to the project to develop a BIM Model for coordination efforts. Bruner took the lead and convinced the other trade contractors to participate.
  • Bruner’s BIM capabilities were recognized by Nation Wide Children’s Hospital and the GC. Bruner was asked to come to NCH to host a lunch and learn with their Facilities, Engineering and Project Management Staff. Bruner also was asked to host an additional BIM lunch and learn for the Design and Construction teams. “Your team took the lead on the BIM modeling / coordination and layout of the facility and the fruits of that effort have provided us a very clean layout and expandable facility,” said David Wohlwend, NCH Construction Manager.
  • Bruner Developed Architectural, Structural, and MEP models in house for the coordination teams.
  • Bruner facilitated and ran the BIM Coordination Meetings with all trades, contractors and owners in our office.
  • Coordination issues were detected in the coordination meeting utilizing Navisworks Manage software and resolved on the spot by all parties involved. Owners, and design team were available in person or by Video and Screen sharing sessions if their assistance was needed. This allowed Bruner to streamline the coordination process on a heavy mechanical project keeping it on track and all parties involved.
