BIM Pipeline is a web-based, rules driven, materials management system which utilizes Building Information Modeling (BIM) data to directly drive detailed take offs. With Pipeline, builders now have a solution which efficiently and accurately bridges the historical gap between design and estimation, while allowing each group to focus on their core competencies. Pipeline enables builders to leverage BIM data to create full master plan estimates with delta BOM reports for options, create lot specific as-built reports, directly cut purchase orders, and even capture customer specific changes to track client customizations. Pipeline performs all of these functions regardless of the source of the BIM data.
Pipeline can receive and refine BIM data from multiple BIM applications such as AutoCAD Architecture, Revit, Vertex BD, and VisionRez. This flexibility allows the builder to progress through transformation at their own pace, without uprooting all their systems at once. It also provides flexibility into the future because builders know they are not chained to any specific BIM authoring tool.
Pipeline allows multiple contributors along the supply chain to upload BIM direct data to support their link in the supply chain.
