BIM Modeling for Residential and Institutional Buildings
About Tom Chia Design Ltd.
Tom Chia Design Ltd. are based in Surrey and specialize in providing a complete design plan and drawing service.
They use Building Information Modeling (BIM) software for 3D modeling that creates usable and workable diagrams that can be used for all stages of design, planning and building.
The client’s first project was a private home with views over a valley at Burnt Hill Road. The total area was about 0.4 acres, including a vegetable and fruit garden.
The client approached BluEnt to convert their initial sketches to Revit and further explore alternate design options for the building.
Design options had to be in line with energy efficiency rating.
- Views from bedrooms and kitchen had to be good.
The BluEnt Approach
We drafted the basic Revit model with the initial sketches. After this, we completed the model for a four-bedroom house with design features including:
A galleried winding staircase
Two reception rooms with original fireplaces
Good views from all the rooms
Meetings for project coordination were organized for both the teams to discuss changes in design during the project cycle.
Maximum Value. Achieved.
BluEnt successfully delivered BIM models within the 6-month timeframe. We also delivered construction documentation and Revit models.
Some of the projects included:
Burnt Hill Road
2403 Woods Estates Home Renovation
