We Believe Problems Are There To Help Us Grow And Find A Better Way.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) creates the possibility to literally transform the design and build processes for real estate developers. Traditional 2D CAD and paper-based workflows are replaced with rapid virtual prototyping enabled by efficient 3D models in Revit that allow for merging models, clash detection, elimination of errors, automating reporting, and efficient collaboration between offices and the field teams.
In short, BIM delivers better, faster and cheaper results – but the challenge is in realizing the benefits. Many firms spend months or even years making the transition from 2D to 3D models and experience significant challenges with learning the new technologies and integrating workflows with existing enterprise systems.
That’s where HingePoint comes in. We provide turn-key solutions for building information modeling (BIM) for clients in Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Manufacturing and Commercial Real Estate industries. Specifically, we provide results based systems consulting, design and development services using our unique process, The HingePoint Way, to ensure that you achieve a positive return on investment. We’re so confident, we literally guarantee your results.
Benefits of Building Information Modeling
Reduce Cycle Time
We helped one firm shave 6 months off their design-build process using virtual design and web-based collaboration.
Our solution eliminated Bill of Material (BOM) errors, saving over $1 Million dollars in errors and write-offs per year.
Automated Design-Build process for a portfolio of 3,000 hotels, condensing timelines, reducing costs, and increasing productivity.
Reduce Costly Changes
We used clash detection and rapid design changes to save over $500,000 in change orders for one project.

The Key Benefits of Virtual Prototyping from HingePoint
Speed Design and Development
3D Virtual Prototypes speed up the design and construction phases on projects, with clients often realizing 20% gains project time lines. Improved collaboration, decision making, visualization, and clash detection are benefits proven to reduce costly change orders, delays, and rework. Get started working virtually and working smarter.
Renderings and Visualization
Architectural prototypes built using BIM models allow you to make photorealistic renderings and validate design selections. Help sell projects, get approvals faster, and market your ideas. Clients and permitting officials make decisions faster with 3D models and visuals. For instance, the image to the left is a sample rendering of an interior restaurant project.
Efficiency, Productivity, and Profit
Align building information modeling data with your upstream and down stream workflow and other business systems will streamline processes including Bill of Materials (BOM), Reporting, Estimating, Procurement, Specifications and Construction Documents. BIM models can be used to power and feed any process. Drive efficiency, productivity and profit in your business today. BIM with ROI™.
More About Virtual Prototyping
Scale your franchise or design-build portfolio efficiently using “virtual prototypes”. HingePoint specializes in 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) services. We help our clients implement BIM 3D Virtual Prototypes, specializing in Hotels, Restaurants, Commercial, Industrial and Product Manufacturers. Many of our clients use virtual product modeling and architectural prototypes to speed design and dissemination of their products into real projects. Digital prototypes make it fast and efficient to apply on the job to a new project or site. Our detailed models are super accurate, and can even be used for construction documentation for permitting and drawing submissions.
We utilize a unique process that we call BIM with an ROI™. We create a data model to directly align with the information you require in your business. The data is the “I” in information in your BIM model. The “B” building will be a fully 3D and interactive life-like building you can walk through, view and render from any angle and it can include architectural, structural, MEP, and civil data. The “M” model will include geometry, parameters, visual renderings, and even drawing sheets data and a full BOM (Bill of Materials) index of all your data in a report and schedules.
You have always wanted to implement building information modeling and now is your chance. Save a fortune on software, computers, training and modeling time. Let HingePoint BIM with an ROI™ take care of all the work for you with a customized, amazing “turn-key” solution. Contact us today to learn how we can save you time and money.
