Typical designs are on paper in 2D. However, JPT actually designs the facility in 3D using BIM, a Building Information Model. This model can quickly be converted into renderings that provide a visual understanding of the spaces within a project design, allowing quick and efficient identification of possible coordination issues. Click play on the video above to learn about BIM Modeling and how it can help you design the optimal facility to grow and process marijuana.
For example, in the corridor of a cultivation greenhouse that contains space that equipment will occupy, BIM would allow you to digitally identify conflicts with equipment locations.
Utilizing BIM, Building information modeling, to develop a Cannabis Cultivation Facility project can:
- Allow end users to visualize spaces prior to construction and make changes if required.
- Visually identify conflicts between systems and reduce coordination issues.
- Save the owner both time and money along the way.
Some firms will charge more for designs to be completed through Building Information Modeling (BIM) as their typical standard design is in CAD. However, JPT does the opposite. Our standard design is in BIM and we do not use CAD unless it is specifically requested by the Owner. All of our designs are done in BIM as it is our standard design method and has no associated extra costs.
