Renovation & Historic Renovation

No type of job better suits our method and refined skillset than the challenges presented by a complex renovation in an operational facility. This project type requires the ability to generate a perfect confluence of construction activity – maintaining sensitivity to the design, budget and schedule requirements, while controlling the impact construction activities have on overall facility operation and safety.

Virtual Building

Blinderman employs Building Information Modeling (BIM) to minimize risk for our clients and simplify complex construction issues. BIM allows contractors to virtually construct a project before ever actually breaking ground in the field, making it possible for us to monitor many aspects of a building’s construction, operation, and maintenance in unprecedented detail. The valuable data inherent in virtual building models, provides many benefits both on and off the jobsite:

  • Establishes clearer communication between owner, designer, contractor and subcontractors
  • Allows for more in-depth planning and evaluation of multiple constructability scenarios
  • Creates greater reliability in cost estimates
  • Improves scheduling precision to minimize disruption to building operations and maximize on-site safety
