DRAFTING SERVICES & 3D MODELLING

The BIM Group CAD services team is led by a team of qualified architects who manage all projects from requirement gathering through to delivery. We support our clients with architectural drafting services and architectural detailing services. We provide architectural CAD services for all stages of projects, including tender, planning, construction, and facility management for industrial, commercial, retail and residential projects.

CAD Service Offering

We convert scanned drawings, blueprints and pdf files (paper documents) which have been manually traced by trained AutoCAD draftersinto dimensionally accurate AutoCAD files. We create drawings according to the standards provided by our clients; for example layers, title blocks and line weights.

There are many software programs that are developed for CAD conversion; however this method, commonly known as, ‘scan to cad’ works well for archiving older drawings, although there are other problems with this scan to cad conversion process that result in drawings that lack accuracy. Many aspects of the cad conversion can be distorted, including scale and line accuracy.

In order to obtain a workable AutoCAD file, manual redrawing is the only method that ensures a 100% accurate conversion.

Other services include:

  • Paper to CAD Conversion
  • Image to CAD Conversion
  • PDF to CAD Conversion
  • DWG to DGN / DGN to DWG Conversion
  • 2D to 3D conversion

We are offering CAD engineering services that includes 2D drafting, 3D modeling, layout preparation, drawing conversion, reverse engineering, CAD engineering services and CAD drafting services for Architectural, Civil, Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Fire (MEPF), Drainage, HVAC, Hydraulic & Pneumatic Drawings, Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&ID) and Telecom Cell Sites.

Our teams offer cost effective services assisting our clients in preparing prototypes of their products through the use of CAD/CAM software within the stipulated time frame.

Within our Architectural services; we specialize in building envelope engineering, where we focus on solving or preventing performance problems associated with the enclosures of buildings. The building envelope includes exterior glazing, opaque wall assemblies, roofs and balconies, and at-grade and below-grade waterproofing.

To create high performance building envelope systemsour clientshave carried out thousands of investigations of buildings with envelope performance problems, often leading to remedial design and in many cases to the management of exterior wall, window, and/or roof replacement. This is where we get involved in providing the following services;

Our services include:

  • Building envelope shop Drawings
  • Building envelope design development and review for new construction
  • Structural analysis of cladding and glazing

Our engineering teams are involved with the design & detailed drafting elements ofbuilding construction as well as roads, bridges, canals and dams.

Mechanical Design is the primary activity in any product, machine and any equipment development process in all sectors of engineering. These designs can be made from scratch or redesigned from the existing design. CAD is an important tool in this design process.
We have the capability to create Manufacturing Drawings,Reverse Engineering Servicesusing advanced software and applications.

We offer 3D modelling that is mainly used for averting assembly line problems thereby allowing process engineers to evaluate various types of situations in which the assemblies can be performed. Our proficiency allows us to offer extensive services for Rapid and Manual Prototyping models.

The software that we use is based on 3D implementation experience in process industries. Our engineers and developers try to simplify the idealization process for the process designer by parametric toolbox and intuitive interface. This further results in easing the entire designing process as no CAD knowledge is required and the process designer is not dependent upon draft-persons for seeing their ideas in virtual reality;

List of services for Mechanical & Manufacturing Drawings:

  • 3D model of machine parts
  • Assembly modeling
  • 3D parametric feature based modeling
  • Automotive parts design companies
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Freeform surface modeling
  • Sheet Metal
  • Precision Components
  • Process equipment
  • Kitchenware components
  • Wire frame geometry creation
  • Manufacturing process drawings for all machine components
  • Fabrication & Welding Drawings
  • Production drawing
  • Components, material optimization, CNC router input for manufacturing

We offer design solutions covering concept design to product realization and support through product life cycle including major subsystems and accessories. Our Engineering Design service enables leading industries, including the automotive industry, to outsource their engineering design projects to us.

Our Product Design Services;

  • Special Purpose Machine Design (SPM)
  • Jigs & Fixture Design
  • Medical Equipment's design
  • Inspection gauges and systems

A Quantity Surveyor can identify and collate the costs involved in order to develop an overall budget for any project. They can then undertake cost planning which aims to help all members of the design team arrive at practical solutions and stay within the project budget.
It is the final detailed estimate prepared by the Quantity Surveyors, in consultation with a project architect, which forms a basis on which subsequent tenders can be evaluated.

Schedules of quantities translate the drawing, plans and specifications produced by the design team to enable each contractor to calculate tender prices fairly, on exactly the same basis as the competitors.
Given the pressure and competition to secure projects, most quantity surveyors/estimators exceed deadlines, therefore either risk losing potential jobs or miscalculating them, resulting in potentially large monetary losses to the contractors.

Using The BIM Group would allow our clients to;

  • Estimate more accurately, easing the pressure on their in house quantity surveyors.
  • Submit many more bids for multiple jobs, thereby increasing their capacity.
  • Become more competitive on their bidding.

We provide the following estimation services;

  • All types of material Take-offs
  • Panel take-off
  • Bill of Materials
  • Area Take-offs
  • Material Estimation

Building systems that we work with

  • Alucobond
    Alucobond (Aluminum Composite Panel) is an exceptionally flat, high-tech architectural panel with a polyethylene core.
  • Kalwall
    Kalwall is a translucent insulated wall and sky roof system.
