Building Information Modeling

“Being able to provide a more comprehensive design means we can work with confidence and be an even better advisor for our clients.”

– Helen Lebanc, BIM/CAD manager

Building Information Modeling (BIM) emerged in the mid-2000s as a more robust alternative to traditional construction models. As an early adopter, Arrow began incorporating BIM processes into our service offering as a way to strengthen our multidisciplinary approach.

We have invested significant time in the development of our BIM processes, strategy plans, workflow processes and methodologies, BIM model management procedures, Revit® content development, Revit® standards, and modeling best practice guidelines.
