2014 AIA BIM TAP Awarded to Northwestern Mutual Van Buren Office

April 11, 2014 BIM Award for Mortenson

Faced with the challenge of retrofitting an existing 162,000-square-foot building that previously underwent multiple additions/renovations, the team turned to technology and BIM.  BIM was utilized collaboratively by all stakeholders from design through completion.  Most valuable to the project was the use of laser scanning to identify the current conditions of the building and the use of BIM to prefabricate MEP systems to expedite the construction process.
