Setty has long been an enthusiastic proponent of Building Information Modeling (BIM), a software-based method for generating three-dimensional models of a building and its MEP systems. Such models allow our designers to view an existing or proposed building from multiple perspectives and to preemptively spot problems in the design phase that otherwise might elude notice. BIM is also a superb tool for supporting interdisciplinary coordination. Setty was an early adopter of Autodesk's Revit, and this continues to be our preferred BIM software. 

Setty's BIM Optimization/Conversion services can assist owners wishing to convert their existing building portfolio to BIM for lifecycle management and visualization purposes. We do this by creating BIM models from as-built drawings and other traditional documentation. Furthermore, we can create photo-level renderings for professional looking presentation and marketing purposes.
