Building Information Modeling (BIM) is how we take our designs to the next level. In the past, there was always a disconnect between the client and the designer due to what each person perceives when they look at 2D drawings. The designer always understands what each 2D line designates but the client may misinterpret or overlook the lines due to their inexperience reading 2D foodservice drawings. Thankfully with new technology we are able to avoid this problem completely by using 3D modeling. All of our projects are designed and modeled in Autodesk Revit. We do not just design our projects in 2D and render a 3D picture of the space, we model each and every piece of equipment in the entire project to give a complete picture of what the space will look like once complete. As you can see, each piece of equipment can be clearly identified, even by a nonprofessional. We are now able to show our clients every angle of every room and even sight lines from the guest’s view. This approach also supports our ability to avoid design clashes and improves collaboration with the architect, engineer and specialty consultants. Revit by nature contains the ability to revise instantly, which also happens to be where the name came from. When a problem arises during construction, the faster a solution can be documented the faster construction can resume. Overall, Revit is the perfect software for designing and documenting commercial kitchens.
